Question about 2002 Volvo V70
I have a 2ltr 10 valve Volvo V70. that wont start.
On turning the key to the start position it starts, fires and runs for about 1 second, then stops. Further cranking on the key gives no further running. Leave it for 10 seconds then it will start and run again for a second.
I have tested fuel pressure, about 38 PSI continuosly,(fuel pump running ok) All the spark plugs are firing when cranking. I have tested the injector supply with a "Noid light" and the injector initialy gives a squirt and then no more. Any help or advise welcome.
Try the fuel injection relay they are located under the hood. They blow out every few years on my Volvo. The car starts to quit all of the sudden. It is either red or green colored. It is located in the fuse box under the hood.

At night, with the lights off and standing in some dark area, open the hood and look for fireworks.
I chased a similar problem, also degrading over days in a lousy Saturn the same year as your car, that was a miserable piece of junk only months after buying it new. That particular problem, only one of dozens occurring before it self-destructed at 57,000 miles (dropped a rod bearing cap), was 'only' the spark plug wires that were leaking like crazy, arcing to every piece of metal possible. The car was 3 years old at the time.
I STILL hate that car and GM! They deserve bad luck . . .

If the engine will not fire on starting fluid the problem lies elsewhere in ignition. Spark plugs etc. computer has a nofault safety start relay. meaning no spark , no fuel

you may want to check the noise suppression relay under the bonnet. A black relay with 4 wires either in front of the coolant tank or by driver side strut.

May have a faulty air/fuel ratio sensor or o2 sensor, throttle body may need adjusting or have a stretched spring or there may be grime restricting air flow so it's flooding it.
