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

SOURCE: 1991 volvo turns over but wont start

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.

Car ran fine driving down the road lost and died wohld not restart but cranked until battery went dead jump start still crank no start where should i look first


Check your fuel filter. If it has not been changed for awhile, it may be plugged. The car would then be starved for fuel and quit. After sitting for awhile, enough fuel may get through, but after running a short time it will die again for lack of fuel.
Another thing to check is your ability to get spark to the spark plugs. You coil(s) may have died and need to be replaced.
You could also have a crack in your distributor cap if you have one and the spark is shorting to ground. You may also have faulty spark plug wires that need to be replaced. You could also have a blown fuse to feeds battery power to the spark coil. You could also have an open ballast resistor in line with your spark coil and it needs to be replaced. Gas or Spark, but how the spark is generated really depends a lot on the car. Here's a test you can run to check for whether your car is starved for gas: Get a can of starter fuel and spray a couple of puffs (small amount) into your air cleaner. Once the battery is charged, try starting it. If it starts running and then dies, you can be pretty sure you have a gas problem.
One last possibility is that your exhaust is totally plugged. Do you feel or can an assistant feel any puffs or unburned exhaust coming out of the tail pipe? If no vapors come out, it could be plugged.
Oh, one other thing it could be. Your plugs may be flooded, especially if you pumped the gas pedal and it is a new model car. If it smells strongly of gas, your spark plugs may be wet (flooded) with gas. In that case, remove all spark plugs, disconnect your spark system, turn the engine over to blow out excess fuel, dry your spark plugs and reinstall them.

My '99 chevy truck with 5,7L 350 will start but wont stay running. put new fuel pump and relay switch in


First you must determine if the fuel is stopping or the spark is stopping..If the fuel is stopping this could be a computer problem.. If the spark is stopping then it could be the IGN Module in the distributer. or any nomber of sensors. Squirt a little fuel directly into the Throttle body on the intake manifold.. If the truck runs longer its probably loss of fuel.. Do this several times to make sure, be careful and only use a small amounty of fuel.. you do not want a fire.. RE: Spark: Take a plug wire and an old plug..put the wire on the plug.. hold the plug against a good ground .. have someone crank the engine .. does the plug stop firing? The engine dies.. and will not restart for a minuet or so.. during this "no start" time do the plug test. If the plug will not fire during this time take the module out and take it to Orillys Auto parts.. They can test it.. really expensive part. Don't replace until you know it is BAD..

Check or replace all your fuel filters. Check for water in your fuel. Drain your tank and replace with 93 octane fuel. Also check your spark plugs.

1991chevy lumina starts hard, runs sluggish and then dies when put into drive. already replaced computer


Having replaced the computer, best thing you could do now is a complete tune up-new spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, air and fuel filter. Change the oil and check all fluids. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Check if your catalytic converter is blocked or clogged-if bad, they will plug up and stop the car.

94 chevrolet lumina idles good but when you are driving it acts like it wants to die like it isnt getting enough fuel when you come to a stop it wants to die too starts right back up


Hi! As a first course of action please do check the spark plugs. You may have fuel flooding and a faulty spark plugs can't burn the fuel. Have the spark plugs replaced and plug wires for better fuel burning. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

1991 Dodge Grand Caravan dies while driving won't restart


If it sputters or hesitates while driving I would suggest a new fuel filter. If it runs smoothly and just dies out you may have a fuel pump which needs to be replaced because it is going bad. If fuel pump relays or other types of relevant fuses are blown it would not start at all. Your mechanic could also pull a spark plug and check for a blueish white high voltage spark if it has an orange or reddish tint that would denote a lower voltage spark normally from a worn out coil pack, spark plug, plug wire etc. Through advanced engine diagnostics you can have your vehicle connected to an oscilloscope or a cylinder dwell meter which can cancel out spark to each cylinder to check for function. However your best bet may be the fuel pump, if your vehicle dies again check to see if your vehicle is getting any fuel first then you'll know for sure.
