Aren;t '99+ ECU's vin locked? I don't think a junkyard ECU would work
You might be correct.

What else did Robert suggest could be wrong ? Or it might be time to call that shop in Schaumburg.

You sure gave it a hell of a try to do it yourself. No shame in handing it over to a fresh set of eyes and troubleshooting minds. Im sure its not the financial route you wanted to take, but when this get figured out, im sure a lot of people here will benefit from the solution. Good Luck !!

Thank you, UT OLI, Yes, Hope there is something simple I've overlooked. I'm crossing my fingers so my nerves can handle the bill .:)

I have experienced a similar issue with intermittent stalling.

I replaced fuel pump and fuel pump relay with no solution.

Figured out that for whatever reason, if I created a crossover at the relay to make it constant on, the problem went away.

I can get additional details later once I chat with my mechanic friend that helped with the solution.

UPDATE:
Car is back and running fine and now I can enjoy it. Swedish Car Specialists shop replaced oxygen sensor (running rich), ECT sensor (as a precaution) and did Xemodex QMSF-1025 TECHNICAL BULLETIN – ETM Power Supply bypass (as a precaution)
Did 30 miles trip on highway at speed of 60-80 mph with out any issues. Trans fluid looks brown so time to do drain and fill on transmission with Valvoline Dex III, and rear diff fluid change.
There is a clunk coming from front on bumps perhaps sway bar links needs to be replaced. ANY RECOMMENDATIONS? Meyle HD or Lemforder or anything else?

Awesome news !! Seems they took a while to get on your car, must be busy. How would you rate your experience with them ? Its always good to rate the Indy's for other members that might live in the area.

If the front end doesn't wander, i would say its your end links, or strut mounts. Ends links are easy to check. IIRC on the P80 links you have to put a open end on the backside of the stabilizer bar to remove the link nut. Otherwise the ball joint will just spin. Just pull the boot back a little and you will see. I cant remember from your previous posts, is your AWD functional ?

Lemforder has a T30 on it instead.

Definitely, I'm up for it.:)
Unfortunately, I didn't make Midsommar at IKEA happen this year! 'Rona and all. But, perhaps, sometime this fall we can have a Chicago (and Wisconsin/Indiana) Volvo get together. Someone would have to post on Facebook, because I'm not on there. I'll start a thread eventually.

That’s something I can arrange with VCOW, we can pick a date and discuss social distancing rules and such for it, we should start a conversation on that!
