Question about 1996 Volvo 850
It seems likely that one or both of your o2 sensors are acting up, or that your engine is sucking in unaccounted air from a leaking vacuum tube. Spray the tubes with "start gas" while the engine is idleing. If you hear it revving up when you spray the gas on the tubes you'll know there's a leak.
I'll sacrifice a squirrel for you and hope that the problem isn't your o2 sensors since they can be expensive to replace. Fcpgroton.com is probably the cheapest part supplier online if you'll need new sensors.
You might also want to clean your throttle body, as it usually gunks up with carbon deposits and sludge over the years. It only costs you the price of the carb cleaner to do it and the car will probably run better afterwards even if it doesn't solve the problem.
