Get your engine check completely, I suspect the PCV Oil trap is clogged and created the mess, surly you got your engine seals leaked, you have to take out all covers to check.

Good Luck!

wjs191 crankcase ventilation problem happens when your PCV Oil trap gets clogged.

Anyway, first think you need to do change the mechanic and try to find the best one, referenced mechanic will be preferred.

While engine hot take the dip stick out and see if there is any smoking coming out.

Since you have posted too many problems which I am sure your mechanic did. Always before giving car to mechanic show him the dashboard error messages.

Do not drive the car since there is Timing belt misalignment, but meanwhile do try to find a reputed Volvo mechanic.
