could be the egnition coil, remove the wire from the distributor and put it close to a piece of sheet metal and turn ignition, without holding the metal of course, and if there is a good spark it's o.k. but if the spark is weak then it could be your problem. might need a new coil. the coil wire is the one in the middle of the distributor.

Wow. any number of things. Clogged fuel filter? Fuel pump relay. Try getting in the car when it's quiet around you. Turn the key to "on", not start. You should hear the fuel pumps hum for a few seconds and then stop. If you don't hear them, check your fuse box. They are labeled but I believe #6 is usually the main fuel pump fuse. If fuses are good, then it could be your fuel pump relay. These typically develop cracks in the solder and when they warm up, break contact and theengine dies. The relay is accessed by removing the 7 screws that hold your glovebox in. Slide it out as a unit. Remove the glove box bulb if you're going to be at it any great length of time or your battery will die. The relay is a white rectangular box clipped to a metal frame on the left of the now exposed innards. It has like 6-8 pins. Thump it a couple of times and see if the car will start. If it does, replacethe relay. Order online as much cheaper than dealership.
If you do hear the pumps cycle when you turn the key to on, then most likely you have a bad ignition module. Your '88 has LH2.2 so there is no crank sensor to go bad. The ignition module is mounted to the driver's side under hood by air cleaner. Small flat black rectangle w/ silver metal base.
If all this is Greek to you, try a Volvo specific forum like swedespeed.com

The tail light assemblies were a bad design in these cars. You need to take each socket out, and clean the contact points on them. Make sure they have a secure connection, and they haven't caused the bulbs to blow out.
The ignition module is located on the inner fender on the drivers side. I would check it to see if it is getting wet. It will cause the engine to not start.

the fuel pump is inside the gas tank, not sure of the location of the relay, it is usually in the under-hood relay center, u should show it in your owners manual.
