Question about 1999 Volvo S70
I have a 98 Volvo S70 base model recently check engine light came on #2 cylinder misfire. Did a tunr up on the car and problem solved. Now check eng light on again P0133 O2 sensor before cat converter. O2 senor has been replaced twice and the Mass Air Flow sensor too. I started the car this morning rough idle and then it went away. I am puzzled took it to the dealer and they cleared the coded i ask if it could be a vacuum leak. Dealer told it would give me a trouble code. Any suggestions

You must take the car to a Volvo dealer so they can reference the code from the VIN number. If you call it in, they only assume you stole the radio. Sometimes you have to prove you own the car.

I have a 2000 Volvo S70 as well with the same code. Do you ever have trouble starting your car? I did and that's why I took it to the dealer. Appartently it's the code for the ignition immobilizer system in your car (part of the security system). Specifically, a part call the antenna ring. The antenna ring is the outer portion of your ignition switch on the steering column - the part that lights up and has the following printed on it: 0 - I - II - III. This part is actually a sensor that transmits the code stored in the microchip inside of your key. When this part goes bad it fails to transmit the correct key code to the computer, and cuts the fuel to the engine.
The dealer wanted to charge me $550 for a new antenna ring, two new keys, and software to program the car's computer with the new key codes. I purchased the antenna ring online for $50 and did it myself in 15 minutes - so easy. They claim that you can't replace the antenna ring without new software - lie! You only need the software if you are replacing the keys.
Car is running great.

IT is very easy get all of the intake ducts out of the way to get access to the starter motortakk off rubber boot and first disconnect neg battery terminal next unbolt two bolts that hold starter and the 3 wires and ground terminal from starter (i have a 14 millimeter wrench that i cuit in half to make removal easier) and you should be all-set
