the 1st thing to do is find out which of the over 125 trouble codes is stored in the computers memory, go to any Kragen or Autozone they will test the system for free.

I had exactly the same problem on my UK 2001 S60.
It was caused by the throttle control housing gaskets not being serviced properly and consequently the entire housing had to be replaced - not a cheap job -and a valuable lesson learned - use a reputable volvo specialist to service your volvo - I didn't and I learnt the hard why! only a volvo specilaist would have known about this I went to several other main street garages & none of them could even diagnose the problem let alone fix it. Although they did do numerous other things first before they gave up - ie replaced titanium spark plugs.
Before it stoppped running altogther and went into "limp home mode" there were tell-tale engine/throttle surges when the car was idle, but in gear.
It is now running "like new" & I will never get another garage to service it, as this could have been avoided - however they can also wear out after about 10years - so my bad services just made it happen sooner!
I hope this helps!

P0042 : Heated oxygen sensor (HO2S)bank1, heater control -circuit malfunction.
The code is telling you one of the oxygen sensors or the wiring to it is faulty.

try and get your hands on a code scanner,some small time mechanics have them, plug into the obd2 connection under the steering beside door,beside/just above pull cable for bonnet,i use one myself to get the codes ,read the code before you delete it ,it should read for example "p0131 or whatever"then google it,it could help you find the area where the problem is,hope this helps

The fuel pump which is located in the fuel tank beneath the back seat has gotten bad. Consider replacing it.
Cheers and rate this solution.
