MY WILL TURNS OVER AND SHUTS OFF...

1995 Volvo 850

Engine Performance problem
1995 Volvo 850 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 215000 miles

Hello.I just purchased a used 1995 volov 850 turbo wagon. Has had a problem with turning over and starting. Then sputtering out. When I try to start it again, it sounds as if it's trying to turn over. But will not turn over to start up. (It almost sounds as if the car was flooded; similar to a car years ago with a carburetor).

The car also had the shift overlock removed by the previous owner; would this be hard to replace, if I did this myself? (Have worked on my own Volvo's for a few years.)
