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.
