A bit less of informations.
If the car has spark, don't care about cam/crank sensors so far.

I really can't help you with precise informations because you don't have precise informations too. I know These cars very well, so i can only give you some "maybe" answers:

- check for fuel pressure at the rail
- These cars have often Problems with the throttle-body. The idle is also regulated through the throttle-body. Maybe it's not opening. Check for Sound from there after turning the ignition on.
- Maybe a stuck open injector that floods the cylinder and let the fuel pressure decae.

--->You can't do much without informations. You have no other Chance than go there and hook up your scantool and do your diagnostic-job first. Maybe there's a Volvo dealer or a scrapyard near, where cou can get the neccessary parts.

Thanks for the answer the owner did take it to a shop to make the repair I thought if it was a small chance that the cam and crank could be wrong it might not get so expensive otherwise a no start should normally not be a problem but who knows my self is very restricted to leave the car away to a shop if I don't know who it is, it might be a parts changer and get expensive.

The shop had made the call on the car no compression the owner is a woman so I don't know if it was more than one cylinder, she is a single mother and it was the worst that could happen. it is a little hard to believe........ did they make the right call but with a compression tester it is hard to not give the right call.

Oh, sorry to hear that! For sure i can understand this situation! :(


Can she make a Video how the cranking-sound is? Also how the failure was coming...much details as possible!
No compression on all cylinders is very uncommon, unless the timing-belt is broken or the exhaust is plugged up -->check for vacuum on the intake.

A low compression can also result of washed out cylinders from fuel, but only one cylinder is affected then. But the fuel-pressure can go down in a extreme case that the car won't start, but this is nearly impossible.

What's your next plan? You need to do the basic-checks at the vehicle --->Spark, fuel, timing, air...
Sorry, but i'm not able to help you otherwise. If you have FB, you can write me there and we can do the diagnose live.

I would have tried some propane or carb cleaner sprayed into the inlet as one the first steps.

I think it is a slight possibility for cylinder wash,,,,,,,, they have been cranking the engine before they took it to a shop and the shop has also I guess cranked the engine over and it has been parked since Christmas.. I hope she will keep it for a while so I can do my own compression test but she might panic and sell it cheap.
thanks for the help I will be back if I get an opportunity to test it for my self.
