I have a 1994 s320 that recently had a broken keyway. The car would start, but nothing would move. So I took it apart and noticed oil caked on the hole block apparenly this work had been done before. I removed the hole front, but never toched the chain or moved it. Replace the harmonic balancer and keyway cleaned everything up and put it back together, but now it starts when its cold & once it warms up theirs no way it will start unless its being gassed. So now im kinda stuck, I think its the fule pressure regulator but I dont know. Can anyone help?

Did you recently replace the belt? If so, did you get the right belt ( not to short or to long). If not, was there any noise before it stopped moving? If the belt hasn't been touched, then it sounds like another component has seized and isn't allowing the belt to move. You could have oil, transmission oil, or anti-freeze on the belt / pulleys allowing it to slip. Belts become glazed with age and also need to be replaced. I would start with checking all the pulleys for smooth noise free operation, then clean all the surfaces, and change the belt. I like the Goodyear Gator belts.
I recently had the same problem and I took the switch out of the dash and took apart the switch and found that the 2wd part had broken .I took the plastic cover for the switch and cleaned the buttons with A Qtip and left the broken plastic piece out .put it back together and instantly I had control of my 4wd.Good luck
WITH INFO YOU ARE PROVIDING CLUTCH MIGHT NOT BE COMPLETELY DISENGUAGING CAUSING A STIFF OR DIFFICULT SHIFT. CHECK BY PUTTING VEHICLE ON FLAT GROUND ENGINE OFF. GET INTO 1ST GEAR. THEN PUSH IN CLUTCH AND START CAR WITH BRAKE OFF IF CAR STARTS ROLLING THEN CLUTCVH IS STILL TRYING TO GRAB. THEN ADJUST THE CLUTCH PER VEHICLE SPECS.
try again my explorer locked up ,right front pulley behind it is the timing gear which is locked into place by a keyway ,this keyway wears and rattles plus the timing gear so the timing is out and the valves hit the pistons ,result back pressure from the bent valves ,the keyway and on the front of the timing gear is another roll pin into the crank nose and they all break here allowing the keyway to chomp away at the timing gear and woodruff key .Result an expensive repair on this diesel engine
This could be a few things.Try the easiest first.With the engine warmed up,the heater core hoses should both be warm(shows water flowing through core)If you have electronic controls,the cold/hot door is controlled by a servo motor(similar to the servos in a remote controlled car toy)These will not move/function if one wire is broken(saw a few GM products do this)Also remember a neigbor's Jeep that had a stuck motor,careully took the servo apart,and lubed the motor to unstick it).Manual or vacuum controls are pretty basic,just figure out where the cold hot door is.
The "click" sound condition make us guess that could be a bad ignition switch or starter.
It turned out to be the starter. I first took the battery to have it tested and it was fine. Next, I took the starter apart and took it to Autozone to have it tested? and it was bad. It is not easy access to remove the starter. The intake manifold and exhaust system are in the way and need to be taken apart first. See instructions below:
Never seen a big engined petrol one of these ,diesel manuals yes plenty abound ,but this year model on the diesel anyway suffers from a crankshaft keyway problem and it wears away allowing the front pulley and timing gear to move allowing the pistons to hit the valves ,now later models had a deeper keyway as a remedy but yours is a 2002 and this could suffer the same problem as the diesels.So check the timing marks first before you change this and that ,V6 petrol ?? try paying 7 dollars a gallon and then say if the diesel isnt the best for economy
Have the dealer look for soft codes and to check the connections to the starter and the battery and to check the alternator for proper charging. Volvo alternators have a circuit inside of them that when it goes bad it will cause the car to stop running without warning.
