2002 Volvo S 40 won't start after tune up

Asked by Oct 24, 2016 at 05:06 PM about the Volvo S40

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 02 s 40. The diagnostic said I needed a tune up, spark plug wires,
ignition wires. I did all that, after I had all changed and now the car won't stay
on at all. Put in the old parts to see why and now blue smoke comes out? Any
help I need my car for work
