Engine Performance problem
1989 Volvo 240 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

the car kept stalling out right when I applied the gas. I was told it my be the fuel fiter. So I replaced it and it was very dirty. I also replaced the spark plugs. Now the car will not start. The engine turns over and spits and kicks but will not fire off.I am getting sparks and fuel to the rail.I also pulled one of the spark plugs and it is now covered in black soot. What is wrong please help

THERE ARE MULTIPLE THINGS TO LOOK AT. FIRST THING: CHECK THE FUEL PUMP AND SUPPRESOR RELAYS, IF THEY ARE ORIGINAL, REPLACE THEM(EVEN IF YOU ARE GETTING FUEL & SPARK); SECOND: CHECK THE CONNECTION ON THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR. IF ITS FAULTY, IT CAN CREATE A NO START SCENARIO. IF IT STILL DOESNT START, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE IT TO GET DIAGNOSED.
