Clutch friction discs are worn, especially if slipping badly under load. You will need your clutch replaced ASAP to avoid leaving you stranded on the road

If it is the same as the 2007 model.
The top of the key is a small slide switch.
You slide it and pull a vanity key out.If the glovebox has been locked it also possibly locks the boot with the same switch.
You will probably need to put key in glovebox lock and turn counter clockwise.
That key is to lock the seats to stop anyone getting into the boot via the fold down system as well.

Hope this helps.

Volvo recommends 5000 miles between oil changes. You can do it more often than that but I advise you to keep 5000 miles as the outer-limit for your oil change interval

Probably a blown fuse. Fuse panel for that is in the passenger foot well area up on the firewall. If I remember right its fuse 34? Its on the bottom row close to the right end of the row.

U are right about the gas draining back to the tank, the electric fuel pump in the fuel tank has a check valve built into it to prevent drain back, the system should always have pressure, to check this u will need to hook up a fuel press test guage at the test valve on the top of the eng near the injectors, run the engine and shut it down, the pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI overnight.
