My volvo v40 has been running fine since I bought it in August 2020, I've even driven it to London and back.
Ever since my service I have had problems, firstly coming up with low level coolant.
I read up on this and purged the system incase of trapped air, there was alot of pressure in the coolant tank when I removed removed cap at first.
After this the low coolant message stopped, but not i have 'engine temp level high, slow down'.
So I've taken it in to the local garage, I've had the water pump changed along with the thermostat and due to these the timing belt.
I no longer have heat in thr cap neither, my coolant is clear, my exhaust fumes are fine.

Can any one come up with ideas of what's going on? Suggestions please?

High pressure in the cooling system is probably a crack in the head gasket.
