Answer 1
I forget the year range Volvos affected but the MAF sensors did have problems due to a little thermostat in th air filter housing failing and diverting hot air all the time across the MAF. With the engine warmed up look for the flat at the bottom of the housing it should be closed and not letting hot air past. Try cleaning the MAF sensor with CRC product # 05110 -
