Hello, my name is***** am a Volvo Certified Master Tech. The codes you have provided are showing multiple faults with more than one system. P0605 indicates a potential Transmission Control Module failure. P0135 is a Front Heated Oxygen Sensor heating element failure, which shouldn't cause what you are describing. P1057 basically is telling the ECM that there is a trouble code stored in the TCM, which is probably caused by the P0605 code. P1008 is indicating a possible Electronic Throttle System failure. P0350 and P0353 are indicating a possible problem with the #3 ignition coil. It sounds to me like the codes all need to be cleared and reread. I am fairly certain the issue you have is that the transmission is starting out in a higher gear because of the fault in the TCM. This is called limp home mode. Is the engine misfiring while running? Does the engine rev up when you press the throttle?
