Odd that the problem only arises after driving for 40 minutes. That would suggest it may be heat related. Have you flushed the fluid recently? Volvo recommends the Pentosin type fluid. Also, is there any chance the serp belt is slipping in the pump
pulley when it gets warm?
I would raise the front of the car on jack stands so the front wheels clear the ground. and then look to isolate the issue. I believe, Pentosin expands as it get hotter.
