    It sounds like you have a few issues going on here.
    1. Won't go over 40 mph. There are several possibilities, could be a failing fuel pump, mass airflow sensor or fuel pressure regulator, or something else. Need a proper diagnosis to determine what is causing this.
    2. OD Light: Most likely the OD relay is failing, very common issue on the 940.
    3. Hissing noise: noises need to be heard and an inspection performed to determine where it is coming from, otherwise it's a very wild peculation, and will always be wrong.
    An experienced Volvo tech can figure these things out fairly easily, as these are fairly common complaints for this vehicle.

    No, the catalytic converters didn't have many issues at all.
