Question about 1995 Volvo 940

1 Answer

95 volvo 940 (non turbo) wont start:(

The car was running rough and lunging, so I used Gumout and then Techron injector cleaners and replaced the fuel filter. It ran well for a couple of days then one am last week it would only run for 20 seconds, and would not restart. The next am it ran for 10 seconds and stopped and would not start.
There is fuel at the Shraeder valve at the top of the engine. ( EFI) There is a spark arc at the spark plug. What do I do now?

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 . . .

95 volvo 940 won't start. Is it lack of fuel or spark or air?


Have you try changing out the air mass meter? It could be dead. The air mass meter is a black Bosch unit that sits by the air filter. Disconnect it and if its doesn't get better. The it has to be replaced.

Turbo problems...


These sound like the classic Ethanol problems I was getting, keep using it in that model and it'll start stalling too!! For some reason the ethanol doesn't go well with our o2 sensor, cakes it with carbon from the alcohol, I poured a bottle of octane booster and filled up with non-ethanol and haven't had the problem since

Have you checked compression on non firing cylinders? Likely has blown head gasket between these two cylinders if located side by side.
