Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

These codes set when the engine is running rich and fuel has been taken away to the fullest extent that the engine controller can and it is still rich. You're setting a code for both banks running rich.

Does it run poorly, smell rich or smoke?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No, it runs fine, no difference at all from before. From what I understand, P2187 is too lean, and P2178 is too rich, no?
Volvo Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Yes, these are actually a rich and lean code for the same bank rather than one code for each bank.

These can't set at the same time. If you clear the code and drive it which one comes back?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I cleared the code yesterday, but it hasn't come back on. I'll get back to you when it does.
Volvo Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok.
