The engine is either not getting fuel, or is not getting spark. with the ignition key in the "run" position, listen under the rear of the car (near the fuel tank) for the sound of the fuel pump. or, after cranking on the starter for a while, remove a spark plug and smell it. smells like gas? if so, the problem lies in the electrical area. if not, fuel is not getting to the engine.

    If you smell gas, means it goes in your combustions but the spark plugs didn't FiRED UP!
    Disconnect/pull out the Hi-tension cable from one of ur sparkplug, use a screw driver and put the metal end of the screwdriver inside the terminal, ask somebody to CRANK the engine while ur holding the PLASTiC handle of the screw driver, and put the metal of part of screwdriver near any GROUND METAL (about 5mm) part of the engine, if u could see any SPARK, means there is electricity going in!
    If your car haven't got any maintenance check/repair.
    check your airfilter!
    Take off the air filter element and start ur car w/o it!
    check ur sparkplugs!
    Take off the sparkplugs, clean and check the GAPS!
    If u don't know wuts the PARTS i have been talking.... ask any SEARCH engine in the NET!

I have a 1988 volvo 740 turbo with no spark. I tested the coil and it is good. with key on I am getting oscillating power. Also when the ignition is just turned to on and not cranked I can hear two...


check the crankshaft postioning sensor. this should be located at the rear of the engine where the tranny and engine mount. if its bad it will not let the coil put out spark. I had the same problem with my 940 and that solved my problem. try this, gently pull up on the sensor cable, then try to start the car. sometimes it will start, but if the sensor is completely gone, replace it.

Trans code number automatic tranny 88 volvo


Hello. i have owned many 740's, 240's, 122's, and 850's. I have done my fair share of transmission swaps. The transmission tag is located right above the trans-oil pan and directly below the od seloind on the drivers-side. if your volvo 740 is a non-turbo, the transmission is AW-70L, if it is a turbo-model then it is AW-71L. Good luck :)

It is a right hand thread and you usually need an impact gun. Take the fan out of the way, to give you more room, I have found that helps.

COLD START ISSUE


try pushing the 4 wires on the radio supression relay into the connector, then try starting it... does it start, run, then die? those connectors ****, i've had the same prob. have you let it huff on some ether? (starting fluid) does it come to life? that would confirm weather or not it its fuel related. my 740 i was loosing voltage to my injectors 10 volts and under, causeing them to inttermittantly not fire, caused by a bad connection at that supression relay.

Car wont start engine will crank


One of those relays supply power to the injectors. They fail, as well as the fuel pump relay, rpm sensor, and the main pump. Have you checked the trouble codes in the engine or ignition computers?
