Engine no start. Car cranks, fires iratically but will not run

Asked by Oct 06, 2010 at 03:34 PM about the 1992 Volvo 740

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car was running great after I had changed injectors and disconected a  cold start injector which was incorrectly operating when the abient air temps were in the 80s (thus loading up the plugs). One day, after about 25 miles of errands, I went into a Volvo dealer to buy something and the car would not restart. It has a Regina system. Fuel pressure is unknown (no access to hooking up a gauge from the factory fuel rail). HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mine did that too. It turned out to be the rev sensor on the end of the crankshaft
