Default Urgent Transmission Required S80 2000, 2.9 non turbo

Hi guys,

On my S80, 2.9L non turbo, 2000 just showed up "urgent transmission service" required.
Also, the engine start sputtering and will not go out of 1st gear.
I had recently visited local volvo shop and they told me that they need to clean MAF.
How can I clean myself?? Is that going to help??

just curious, reading about those bad "urgent transmission service" on S80's and am curious how did you fix it??
Someone recommended changing transmission oil, someone change solenoid's and helps.
Out of curiosity how did you fix your "urgent transmission service" problems??

Seems to be that when they reset the check engine light car was driving for a few days without problems, shifting great.
I just don't see how transmission can be bad if they reset codes and after that car is driving like a champ.

The codes they pulled from volvo shop:
Code for long term fuel trim ( 261A)
Adaptive lambda control bank 2 ( ECM-271A )
Transmission shift solenoid S2 (TCM-000C)

Also shop recommended if this happen again to go to volvo dealership to re-program the transmission software.

What do you guys think about??
What should I do??
How can I fix those issues??

Any and/or all ideas will be more than welcome.

Thanks in advance.
