Default 1993 940 wagon - turns over but wont start

What could my problem be? Drove the car all day, no problem. Went to my last stop, car sat for about an hour. Got back in and went to start it, it almost started then slowly got worse meaning it now only turns over. Its like it has no fuel. Help

Seeing as how it did that, how about checking it for codes. I would bet that yourtiming sensor is on its way out.

Speed sensor or fuel pump relay.

The saga continues. I got up this morning andagain itstarted right up.I then drove the kids to their basketball games. After the game wereturned to the car and no start.I gave it severalhours and tried it againstill no start. I finally called AAA for a tow home andstill no start.It turns over strong but no start like as if it had no gas.
Stuck in the Carolinas.

Check and see if it has spark.
But the fuel pump relay might cut both spark and fuel off.
Also listen to see if you hear the fuel pump.

I'm glad tech mentioned the fuel pump relay because it reminded me of a time my car did the same thing to me after I filled it up at a gas station. No start at all, it took me a minute to get my bearings, once I did I realized I didn't hear the fuel pumps running. So I removed the fuse box cover and searched for the correct fuse for the pumps. I removed it, installed it, and the pumps started working. Turns out my fuse ends were just so corroded that it wasn't making good contact. You may want to give that a try first, you'll know if that's the problem because after you twist the fuse a few times and turn the key on, you'll hear the pumps go through their prime mode.

Well, I have determined that I do have spark, thefuel pump relay works because Ifeel it click when the key is turned on and I have a half a tank of gas. When I turn the car over it still wont start but whenI spray starting fluid in it starts breifly but wont stay running so it clearly is not getting gas. I was toldto listened for a fuel pump noisewith the gas cap off but I hear nothing.
Isthe fuel tank on a 1993 volvo wagon in the gas tank, and is thatwhere I should be listening for the fuel pump sound? It has the Regina electical system.I replaced the fuel filter and didn't see the pump anywhere near by.Thanks

The pump is in the tank.
You can gain access to it from the trunk.
