Question about 1992 Volvo 940
I was driving around 45 mph when out of nowhere my 92' volvo 940 turbo just quit, while the car coasted around a lighted u-turn... first all the warning lights came on, then a complete loss of power. When I tried to start it it would turn over but would not catch. It almost sounded like the timing belt had broken and there was no compression. However, I towed it to my home where the next day I removed the timing belt cover and although the belt was badly cracked and worn it was not broken. Can a badly worn belt caused the car to completely die and not start again? And would that cause a total loss of power when it died. If not and the problems may lie elsewhere, could you please help me with a couple of ideas on where to start. I am a self taught mechanic, yet I do good work only from studying mechanics manuals over and over and trial and error (also help from the internet). HELP
Respectfully, Ronnie Poole
Two things to check,,, there is a crank sensor at the back of the engineby the bulkhead,,at the top of the engine where the gearbox joins ,,,the sensors are known to be faulty if sometimes ,,, check the cable to the sensor,,if it is damaged replace the sensor,,,the other common problem is the fuel pump relay,,, behind the fusebox in the dash
