On initial start in the morning the car stumps and stalls. After a few starts it eventually idles normally with no problems. No CEL. I just put a fuel system cleaner in to see if this resolves issue. New Volvo plugs, breather box and air filter have already been done.

Any other thoughts.

On start up, when it is lumpy - what does the exhaust look like?

I would suspect low fuel pressure after sitting overnite.
Try keying the ignition off/on a few times to prime the system before cranking the engine.

Thanks all for your replies. Finally I got a CEL and the culprit was the exhaust vvt solenoid. Replaced which solved the constant stalling a power loss issue. Lucky I had spare parts lying around and didn't have to purchase one.

Still have a slight stall when cold on startup no cel. I feel it's the fuel pressure sensor which I will replace this weekend.

Thanks again Madness

your lucky, i drove my xc70 for 3 years with a bad VVT solenoid no CEL. Check your key antenna ring, the solder joints can crack causing the car to hesitate to start.Good luck
