I have a 88 volvo 740 GLE and i was going down the road and my car shut off. I got it started a couple of times but now it will not start. I have replace the fule pump, spark plugs,distributor cap and rotor, and it still won't start. Would it be the distributor or the timeing belt? Because right now it won't even fire.
The problem wont be your timing belt. you need to take out a spark plug plug it into your HT lead and check for a strong spark or even if there is a spark. check your contact breakers on the distributor as well

One way that always works is to disconnect the battery for at least ten minutes. If the cause of the check engine light turning on in the first place is not fixed, then the light will come on again pretty quickly after starting the car. To reset your service light here are the steps.
1. Get in your car and shut the door. 2. Put your key in the ignition 3. Turn your ignition key to position 1 4. Push in your Odometer reset button and hold it in while holding it move the ignition key to position 2 while holding down the odometer reset button. 5. After couple of seconds of holding the button down and the key in position 2 your service light will start to blink once that happens let go of the reset button and start the car.
Have you tried replacing the fuel filter? It is located under the cars center on the left side ..
You will find it alongside the main high pressure fuel pump on a metal
support plate held up with 3 bolts. Remove the 3 bolts with a 10mm
socket wrench to lower the plate. Place a catch pan below the filter to
catch any leaking fuel. Be careful not to get fuel in you eyes or
running down your arms. Remove the 2 bolts holding the banjo fuel pipe
connections to the filter. Note the direction of the filter. Loosen the
clamp holding the filter to the support plate and slide out the old
filter. Install the new filter in the same direction as the old one and
use new copper sealing washers on the banjo connections.
