Make sure your getting gas to the carb, or throttle body. Also check to see if you have fire going to the spark plugs. If you have both fire and gas, I would go through my firing order and make sure the plug wires are in the right place. You should also check your timing.

Truck wont start

Check for spark at the distributor if no spark check or replace coil pack. also check to see distributor is turning while engine cranking, if not, possible worn out or broken gear tooth on shaft inside engine.
if distributor turns, check for burnt or worn out points and/or contacts on distributor cap.

You will have to provide more information, what year / engine size / fuel type (I assume petrol as you're stating there are spark plugs). Also what was done when the engine was rebuilt, and why didn't the garage that did it check the engine was running before handing back to you?

If you did the work, please list what works were done and what was replaced.

If it is a modern Volvo you may find that, as with many modern cars, sensors that are replaced need to be linked with the ECU before use. If they are not then their input is ignored by the ecu.

2004 volvo s40 deisel wont start.

connections at the starter or the starter itself. see that the engine can in fact turn over, that it has not seized. the starter has two connections, one big and one small. check that the small one is getting 12v when the key is turned to the start position. if it is, then the starter needs to be rebuilt or replaced

My 2003 toyota corolla wont start, the starter turns but it wont engage the flywheel, only occasionaly. I checked the ground and the cable going to the starter. No voltage drops, solid connections. This...

Sounds like a bad starter drive gear. The gear has a one way clutch so that it does not over-spin when the engine starts. When the clutch is bad it slips in both directions. Rebuilt starters can be anything from excellent to bone-yard fresh junk, depending on the remanufacturer. You should be able to get just the starter drive and install it; but buy from a reputable parts store, not a bargain center like Auto Zone etc.
