    Check the ignition switch. Perform the ignition switch test with test lamp.

    Minimize the spark plug gaps to 0.70 or even 0.60 for test purpose only. If this solves the problem replace the ignition coil.

    Sorry for your inconvenience I misinterpreted its model and year. Please have a look on the following. -Air is getting in fuel system.- Fuel filter,- Contamination,- Air leak in lift pump, if any,- Solenoid on injection pump, - Lack of Fuel pressure, - Seat belt buckle connectivity. Hope that works.

SOURCE: 1999 v70 wagon 2.4t starts, as soon as you release

This sounds like a ignition problem,check the ignition switch. see if it looses power when the key is released,also if it just cranks then it may just die when the key is let go for another reason than the switch, but i would start with the switch first.

SOURCE: why would turning the steering wheel while cranking engine gets my car to start?

The ignition switch in the column most likely has a break in it. So when you move the steering wheel, it moves the wire so it completes the connection when you turn the key. Have the ignition switch replaced.

My mustang 442 skid steer battery dies if it sits a few day I changed the battery and it still does it

Charge the battery, then remove one of the terminal connections. With everything off in the vehicle, touch the wire to the disconnected terminal. If you get a spark, something is draining the battery in the vehicle. Possible light somewhere that can't be seen is staying on.

Remove the key from the ignition. Pull the negative battery cable, and floor the brake pedal for 10 seconds. Replace the cable and then try and start it. That may reset everything.
