Question about 1991 Volvo 240
Just stopped running. It still gets fuel. No sparks on the spark plugs. I replaced the bobine.
This video could be a possible solution to your problem or your vehicle may have an igniter assembly or coil that needs replaced

SOURCE: 1985 Volvo 240 no fuel no spark
well first the fuel pump relay is bad, that is easily replaced. next you have no spark. the first thing you do is take the cap off the distributerand crank the engine. if it spins that tell syou thyat at least the tang or gear on the shaft of the distributor is ok and not broken. next thing is remove the #1 plug and use a 1/4 drive extension 6" long and turn the crank by hand until the #1 cylinder is top dead center(put the extension in the hole of head where the plug was and you should feel the top of the piston also make sure you can feel the top of the piston with half the extension this way you don't drop it in the cylinder with the piston at TDC(top dead center) the rotor of the distributor should be pointed at the #1 firing position. IF it does not that means your timing is off and you need to retime it by taking off timing cover and either replacing the belt/chain or gears. now if you do not have a distributor and you have a coil pack there could be only 2 things that won't give spark. either a bad coil or your altenater is bad(the battery is responsible for starting not running the vehicle like alot of people assume. the altenator energizes the coil which inturngives spark. hope this helps you please rate this thanks

If your air mass meter tests good, the I would tell you to check the HIGH PRESSURE PUMP underneath the Driver's side chassis pump holder-next to the fuel filter.
There are 2 pumps on your Volvo---the in-tank low pressure, and the chassis mounted high pressure. The car will run with the in-tank failed and the high pressure good. It will not run with the high pressure failed. Test the pump by applying voltage to the two terminals.
Another common failure, should the high pressure pump be good, is the HALL EFFECT SENSOR located in the distributor on the back of the engine. Once this sensor goes, it's no start. A rebuilt or used distributor may be the answer to your problem.

you may want to check your fuses. there is one under the hood on drivers side. 25A blade. it will be located bye the fenderwell. it may be corroded or oxidized. clean it with sandpaper and place it back in. other then that the two other things may be your fuel pump relay. check it out by removing the plastic cover and check to see if anything looks burnt. if so it needs to be replaced. (its under the glovebox by the firewall) or your fuses on the interior drivers side ( it think it may be #6 or #4) may need to replace.

FUEL PUMP GETTING HOT, check fuel pressure, check for spark at the coil sounds like a heat problem, got a blow dryer? when it comes to fuel pumps go to NAPA GOOD PARTS, on the left front door fuse panel jump hot 12vdc to to pump, check for voltage there aswell when it dies
