Default S80 Driveability problems

Hi
I have a 2000 T6 with 80k. It has had a number of problems. The last one involved a week in the shop and it appeared to heal itself.The car would not get over 40 mph. The scanner showed no voltage from either of the front O2 sensors. We replaced them both with Volvo sensors, but the problem was still there. After the car sat over the weekend there was voltage and the car ran fine---for about 4 days. Now it has a code P1132 and a pending code P0234.
In addition to the O2 sensors, the air mass sensor, fuel cap, plugs, filters, and all ignition coils (the coils were at the recommendation of the local Volvodealer).When the car is running rightit is a joy to drive, but that isn't very often. Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks
Rick

Hi Tech
I did forget that we had the ABS module rebuilt by Victor in October. The car ran perfect without the module, but the speedo did not work. We also replaced the fuel cap with one from Volvo.
Also last night it almost died on my wife. From what she described it sounded like the torque convertor didn't want to unlock. She said it jerked hardwhen she came to a stop then it was ok. It has only done that once.
Thanks
Rick

Ok I asked because if the module is bad it could make the car run bad and do whats its doing.

About the new symptom has the throttle body been cleaned lately?

Thanks Tech
The throttle body wasn't that dirty butI cleaned it anyway. When I took the air supply hose off, the cooler end was folded under the clamp. It must have been like that when we bought the car a year and a half ago. I straightened it up as well as I could and the car RUNS GREAT!!! I have a new one on order from Volvo since mine was creased pretty good.
Thanks again
Rick
