You can buy a canister wrench at the local auto parts store. You do not need to torque the oil filter on, just hand tighten, No new gasket for the drain plugs just do make sure that it is tightened properly

The 99 volvos are notorious for having bad ETS (electronic throttle system). The 1999 was the first the throttle cable was eliminated and the throttle is controlled by wire. You need to replace the throttle control unit and you need to install a custom software that the Volvo VIDA system provides. You have to buy the software and and pay for the software install and the hour for the tech to install it and the replacement of the module.
At first they were making us clean the throttles and installing software but it was useless. They were going bat so much that they had to extend the warranty on them.
This is when ford bought volvo and things started going down hill.
If you love your car, get a 98. I got two.
