SOURCE: Volvo 240 has no spark

Try a new engine rpm speed sensor. It is located at the back-top of engine block where it mates to trans. You will need to remove a single bolt (10mm socket or wrench). You may have to wiggle the sensor to lift it out. Another symtom you may experience, is when you are cranking the car to start, it will buck and act like it is out of time. Another possible component is the ignition power stage/amplifier.

SOURCE: No spark at plugs on my 1991 volvo 240

Did you replace the plugs? How hot is the spark from the coil thin and blue? if it is big and orange it is a weak coil and should be replaced. If it is good try an other wire from a different car (do not put a spark plug in it) and see what the spark looks like if good put the plug in it and check the spark again if this is a good the wires are bad

SOURCE: 1989 Volvo 240 GL: Will not start, no spark, no fuel

it is likely either the Crank position sensor, or the ignition module. (module is in the left front fender area behind the turn signal)

Replaced bad fuel pump, installed new relay and fuel filter, engine turns over but is not firing on..... positive the fuel pump is pumping gas and checked to see if gas was going thru fuel filter. Tried...


Hi, Ok you have confirmed that it's not a fuel problem. You need to check for spark. Pull the coil wire off of the coil(secondary lead-looks like a spark plug wire) Have some one crank it over and listen for a popping sound. IF yes, spark is at the coil, that means all ignition sensors are working. Next check for spark at ends of wires after cap. IF no replace cap and rotor. IF yes remove a couple spark plugs and check for fouling(wet, fuel etc...) IF yes replace or clean plugs and retest for starting. IF no spark is present at coil you need to scan computer and watch for rpm signal. IF no rpm signal, replace crankshaft sensor with OEM delco part. BIGGEST problem with these engines is Cap and Rotor burn out.

Iv got a '87 mk4 s2 escort rs turbo that wont start. it turns over. has a new coil,distribitor,leads and plugs and its getting fuel but just not starting.. please help! cheers


Well if you have replaced all of the ignition components and you have verified that you are getting fuel thats great? I assume you have verified it is getting spark because if you havent it could be your ignition control module or even your ecm. I would confirm you have spark. If you have spark then the vehicle should run. You said you replaced the distibutor? I am going to assume you mean the entire distributor and not just the cap and rotor? I would make sure you do not have the timing 180 degrees out since you replaced the distributor, it can happen and if so the car will never start. If you just did cap and rotor I would make sure you didn't accidentally install the rotor 180 degrees out. I had a guy that did this on his Chevy truck, poor guy just did a tune up and everything on it and it ran before he did the tune up. I took a look and realized he reversed the rotor, as soon as I turned it back it fired right up and ran great.

Need firing order diagram.. wont start


remove the dizzy cap, crank motor over to find out the rotation of the rotor. Remove the no.1 spark plug and bring no.1 piston up to top dead centre on compression stroke, mark side of dizzy body where the end of the rotor points to, replace dizzy cap and see which lead it lines up with.
that will be your no.1 lead, find the firing order and put the leads back on the dizzy cap in the direction of the rotors rotation, run those leads to the corresponding plugs and it should start.
