Car brought in for routine oil change and few minor problems. I noticed it was not as peppy and pointed this out to my service advisor. They then diagnosed as a problem with turbocharger and replaced same plus catalytic converter. Check Engine Light appeared 2.5 weeks after 1st repair of turbocharger and driving ~+300 miles. The check engine light was attributed to not draining oil pan after reinstallation of turbocharger (from prior visit).

This is visit 3 related to two earlier problems. Check engine light appeared again ~2 weeks after last repair. Taken back to dealer who then replaced some sort of sensor and updated software. Check engine light again came on after several days of driving. This all seems related to the original reinstallation of the turbo unit. Unit supposedly repaired again (this is trip 4 for same issue). Car was not peppy ... on examination by Volvo Turbocharger replaced and along with it catalytic converter.  Check engine light came on. After examination, it appears to be due to oil in turbocharger pan not drained when turbocharger replaced earlier in the month.
