It sounds like you have the wrong thermostat installed in your car. You need to get the water to the block quicker then what it's doing now. Always check oil every time before driving. This is a must on older cars. Some Mechanics differ, but in the long run it will pay off. An oil spot beneith the car might be bolts that need to be tighten on the oil pan, of you may have a bad oil sending unit. Also ehck power steering pump fluid level and make sure there is not a leak there.

White smoke on starting engine ml270


although mercedes recomend using synthetic motor oil im 90% sure that your mechanics mistake (putting to much oil in it) ruined your piston rings thats what the white smoke is all about!! oil is getting into the cylinders!! make him replace them for free since he caused that prblem im sure he has insurance!!

First, all these mechanics that you took your car to, did they have the full Volvo diagnostic software? In other words, were they able to access ALL computer systems that the lights were on for? If not, take your car to the Volvo dealer or a shop that has the proper software.
If the alternator does not charge or drops out while the engine is running, it will cause ALL the warning lights to come on.
Did you try adjusting the dash light dimmer control?
