My 85 volvo 740 turbo 2.3 eng .start but die right after start seen like is out of gas or out of spark


Very common problem with the Volvo 2.3 is the fuel pressure regulator .When this device fails it does not hold fuel as it should and return all fuel needed to start the vehicle, To trouble shoot it a mechanic would get a needle nose plier and crimp the return line if it stays running and as he releases the crimp and it stalls its the fuel pressure regulator that needs to be replaced, Another way he can determine if the regulator is at fault is to check the oil if it has raw gas smell in it it a sure bet the fuel return regulator has failed,

My volvo 740 non turbo car has resently failed to start i need some ideas on what to do, When i try to start the car it will crank but will not turn over and start, this is my first car so i have no idea...


the engine is either not getting fuel, or is not getting spark. with the ignition key in the "run" position, listen under the rear of the car (near the fuel tank) for the sound of the fuel pump. or, after cranking on the starter for a while, remove a spark plug and smell it. smells like gas? if so, the problem lies in the electrical area. if not, fuel is not getting to the engine.
