Q: will not start on 2000 Volvo S70

Car will not start. Has a new battery, checked to make sure it is getting spark...and even replaced old plugs - needed new ones anyway...checked and the car is getting gas.

Not sure where to turn, I have a new bat, spark and it's getting gas.

The car will just turn over but never fire.

Any ideas what to check next?

Our car does the same thing. Drove home in it yesterday for 3 hours making 1 stop and re-starting fine. After a 30 min second stop it would light up but not turn-over. This was at 8 pm. Went there at 11 30 the next day and started right up even after being outside in 20 degree weather. What are my options here?
