  1. My daughter just bought a 1999 C70 Turbo with less than 60k miles. She bought it on ebay, the owner delivered it to us from N.J. we are in S/E Michigan, she took him to the airport to fly home, next morning, the car won’t start. Turns over fine but won’t start. I checked the schrader fitting on the fuel rail, it has pressurized fuel. I disconnected the electrical fittin to the mass airflow sensor ( limp home mode ) still won’t start. I guess tomorrow I will remove one of the plugs to see if I have spark. Anyone out there have any suggestions? I’m a long way and an expensive tow charge to the nearest Volvo service place ( Swedish Engineering / Ann Arbor Michigan ) hope someone can offer some advice.
