    I am not well versed with Volvo, I have seen problems with poor quality reman units but you say these are OEM Bosch. I have seen computer reflashes on some cars to recalibrate the air flow meters. There is a professional service called Identafix. http://www.identifix.com/info/about_us.htm They only deal with professional repair shops. They are in the Minnesota 651-633-8007 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 651-633-8007 end_of_the_skype_highlighting. Your auto repair shop do all their diagnosis tests, and discuss your problem with a team of professional technicians great service cheap and very bright people. If the repair shop that are repairing your car are stumped this is a great service. This company only deal with automotive repair shops and don't answer questions for the general public but are an amazing knowledge base. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars..
