Hi .
On this engine with high mileage its common for the injectorsd to need recalibrating .
I would first cneck for any malfunction codes . fuel pressure could be your main factor for the problem you have just as you are thinking .
Start with a basic tune up, change fuel filters check fuel for water content .
Use a good fuel injector cleaner for diesel injectors .
Take a few days drive see if improves..
If not see if you can get the engine on a scan tool and check the system completely by putting the engine though a few test for the fuel system in live data a good Volvo diesel tech will see what is good or bad data .
Please rate my help a good to excellent if you are satisfied .
If not ready to rate don't rate poor or bad service as we can continue to work on this issue or I can opt out and recommend another expert .
After accepting there is no extra charge for further assistance.
If I don't reply soon I will as quickly as I can when i get back on line.
Kind regards Greg
