Question about 2004 Volvo S80
Our 2005 Volvo S60 has a rough idle when cold and the check engine light comes on with a text message to "slow down or shift up" even though the transmission is changing OK.
Sounds like an oxygen sensor (there are two). I had a recent problem where I had a rough idle and my S60 continued to stall out. Turned out to be the rear oxygen sensor. After replacement, car idles nicely and car drives normally.

Fix the switchblade key with a broken locking mechanism so that when it is inserted slot down the case of the key does not hang just over the knee(1/4 Inch) like a lever.. with a key chain the broken switchblade key is hanging on the right knee and can easily turn the ignition switch off..similar to the GM recall problem..Solution insert key slot side up so key does not hang and take the key chain off..2nd solution fix the switchblade key locking mechanism so it doesn;t matter whether key is slot up or down..

I have a 02 S60. Was having the same problem. Turned out to be the Ignition Coil. There is one per cylinder. Looks like a boot that goes on top of the spark plug. Have like an auto parts store pull the codes to find which cylinder is"mis-firing". Or inspect them and look for defects such as cracks.
