When I start my volvo v40 2 litre 1199 estate the heat gauge goes to red and the fan comes on even though the engine is not hot. I drove it for five miles the gauge moved from top red to half way several times. When home I tested the water there was only a slight hiss when I took the cap off and the water was full. I have had some problems starting the car it starts after a count of eight. It has done high millage.
