Default radiator change out, now car dies

Just switched out a radiator on a 2004 xc 70. Car ran fine for about 25 miles then started stuttering and then dying. Now stalls when the car is stopped or slows down. Computer read out indicates a problem with the heat oxygen sensor. Could this cause the stalling?

Did one of the intercooler hoses come off?

is there a sensor located in the oil tank? could that cause it to misread the computer if something damaged the dipstick?

No sensor there.
It does sound like a blown intercooler pipe to me though.

finally got it to a volvo mechanic who figured out the exhaust sensor and the speedometer sensor were blown. Whew! At least it's repairable and not something really awful.
