Engine Performance problem
1988 Volvo 740 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 140, 00 miles

I only have spark and fuel when I remove the distributor and spin it by hand, this seems to turn on main power when there is no power at normal start up, any ideas?

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi bonehead11,

Thank you for the donation.

Do you mean to say there is power at ignition on and no power when cranking?

I suspect either the timing belt is broken or the ignition switch is faulty.
