Hello MVS reader, I notice you're running an ad blocker. Because I make a living running MVS, and it runs on ads, please consider donating or visiting my sponsors:
iPD, eEuroparts, Volvo Salvage, and Southern Vo-Vo.
Without advertising revenue, MVS wouldn't be nearly as good as it is, or it wouldn't be on the Web at all.
Thank you -- Matt.

Troubleshoot A Dead Volvo 5-cyl Engine
Tips on Finding the Problem on White Engines
- Pull the head and inspect before doing any other plotting and planning.
- If the problem were to be rusty or stuck valves then the fix is easy.
- The cam sensor is different on Denso with different reluctor and the cam I believe to different on rear where the Denso reluctor mounts.
- You can’t run CVVT unplugged, the cam will still vary a bit.
