Sounds like it may be dumping fuel and flooding it self,this is mostly caused by bad o2 sensors,or clogged catylac converter.

I removed the plugs and they were dry but bad so I changed them and it fired a little more often. I also tried starter fluid with no effect.

Does the domestic code reader work on a Volvo?

Mark Can this alow the car to run one day and stop it from starting the next or should she have had problems before? Sorry for the dumb questions but I am doing this for a disabled friend several miles away.

Body,you may need to check the fuel pressure sounds like it may be fuel pump acting up if it does this randomly.

A standard OBD-II code reader will work for most of the systems, and likely for this situation if the car is throwing a code. Otherwise, you'd need to bring it to a dealer or local European/Volvo shop that has VIDA/DICE.
