During the diagnosis of the symptoms the technician may pull diagnostic codes from the Engine Control Module that point to a lean air/fuel mixture. If no vacuum leaks are found, then the mass air flow sensor (MAF) is often the cause.
Replacement of the MAF will be needed, along with a reset of the Engine Control Module and erasing of the diagnostic trouble codes.

Volvo S80 RecallsEngine Starter Fails During Automatic Engine Stop Restart Function
The auto stop / start feature of the engine may fail, as the starter motor fuse may blow and the engine may not restart. Dealers will replace the starter motor fuse with a higher amperage fuse free of charge to resolve the concern.
The windshield wipers may run continuously and the headlights, high beams and turn signals may not operate due to the malfunction of the central electronic module. Dealers will upgrade the module software free of charge to resolve the concern.
A software error within the Central Electronic Module (CEM) will result in the "TPMS Service Required" message appearing after approximately 15 minutes of accumulated driving over 25 mph. The error will prevent the TPMS from warning the driver that a tire needs air. Underinflated tires can result in tire overloading and overheating, which could lead to a blowout and possible crash. Dealers will reprogram the CEM to correct this concern. The Volvo recall number is 256.
