2004 Volvo C70 • 85,000 miles

Car won't idle unless your foot is on the gas, and then it revs and falls without changing pressure on the pedal. I cleaned the MAF and no change. Unplugged the MAF and car starts fine and idles fine. Replaced MAF, reset the computer and back to original problem. After the car has been running 5 to 10 minutes it will idle fine and drive fine. Just replaced the alternator, but this problem started the day before I replaced the alternator. (Already had that repair on the to do list.) Wouldn't think that would have anything to do with it. A CEL came on initially, but does not seem to come back on since I reset the computer.

The car is a 2.3 liter turbo.
