    O2 sensors if not outright defective, can become slow to respond as they age. If have found "lazy" downstream sensors on two cars. Replacement solved the problem, and the vehicle ran better!

    It sounds like you have an aftermarket remote starter setup? If so, I would disconnect that if possible, at least temporarily bypass it, and see if the problem changes.

    You cannot mix the G-05 and the green stuff you have now. I think I would stick with what you have, otherwise you will have to thoroughly flush the system first, before switching to G-05 or Volvo OEM...

    +1 to this!
    Bumper cover really is a 10 minute job! The only way, in my opinion, to do anything with the headlamps.
