SOURCE: ENGINE MISFIRE AND SHAKING
check your wire harness on the top of the engine. Volvo must have bought harnesses from Mercedes. The insulation just cracks and disintegrates, then the wires short. Not good for an ignition system.Once they short It can fry the circuit for that cylinder in the computer. Does not set a code other than Misfire.

Don't know your engine size so pick the correct one for your motor:
2.3L 4-Cylinder Engines Firing Order: 1–3–4–2 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise
2.8L 6-Cylinder Engine Firing Order: 1–6–3–5–2–4 Distributor Rotation: Clockwise
2.9L 6-Cylinder Engines Firing Order: 1–5–3–6–2–4 Distributorless Ignition
2.3L and 2.4L 5-Cylinder Engines Firing Order: 1–2–4–5–3 Distributor Rotation: Counterclockwise

Testimonial: "It ism still missing on #2 cylinder."
Sound like the idle air control valve(IAC) is dodge, could try taking off and cleaning with carb cleaner, while doing that take off hose by throttle body and also clean in there inc butterfly, go and give it a good blast down the motorway !!

Testimonial: "Problem solved as suggested,I took it for a good run on the motorway and after about 80 miles it seemed to have settled the problem,Thanks for the info much appreciated Paddy C"
The Check Engine light has nothing to do with changing the oil. The light is on because there is a problem with the emissions system. Even if you reset the light it will just come back on unless the problem causing it to come on is repaired. You will need to have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. That tool will retrieve the code that has been set by the ECU. The code will tell you what part is being effected, but not necessarily what part or parts are defective. To determine that takes training, experience, and diagnostic skills. I suggest you seek professional help. If the engine is running fine there is no hurry but if it is not running as it should, then do not put this off.
