2000 Volvo V70 Question: Car won't start

 

Question

Visitor, Birmingham, AL, January 13, 2011, 11:53

Just had a cold snap with snow here in Alabama, tried to start the car during the second day the car initially started then sputtered out when I placed in gear to drive. Subsequent attempts to start have resulted in failure with the engine never turning over. I have replaced the battery and just had the 110k interval service, all within the past maonth and a half.

    The car cranks, but won't start. If it cranks (the engine turns over), the starter has to work. So why would it need a starter???
    I think it might be a fuel pump or a relay issue. I need to know what engine it has.

    Silly question, but did you put the car back in park after is sputtered out? If so I would check the battey connections. I would also check to see if it will start in neutral. The running problem could be just cold. You might have some water in your fuel filter that is frozen. Check it out and let me know.
