So my volvo seemed to be in good shape except for once in a great while you would here form the back a loud BANG! Like I have a bowling bowl rolling around back in the wagon. Well it made that noise once today and then later on my second drive for the day it just died, the engine turned off and I coasted to a stop. I tried to start it and it turs over but won't start? It just goes ewwer ewwer ewwer. My car is also rear wheel drive do you think it has to do with the fuel pump or filter? I don't know what could be wrong?
Do you
have the same problem?

Cranks but no start condition:

Fuel and Spark:
Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
Was this
