Default 2000 S70 Glt 2.4 turbo no start

The will crank and crank and crank but nothing will happen. It seems to have had a new timing belt installed and one of the ignition coils has a broken connector, but it should still fire right? This is my first Volvo and this is killing me. It is getting fuel for sure, but I don't know if it's getting spark or how to test on a ignition coil.
I have a video of it cranking

If you can, get some starting fluid at the auto parts store. Take off the hose coming from the air filter and spray a 1-2 second burst of fluid into the hose toward the engine. Then try to start. IF it starts for a couple of seconds and dies, you have a fuel delivery issue. IF it does not start, then it is a spark issue. Give it a try and let us know what happens.

Iíll try it. I know for sure the fuel pump works. The fuel rail shoots fuel at you. I donít know how to check for spark. I was thinking the vvt solenoid because the top of the motor has a little oil on it.

Clean all the oil off the connectors as best you can and also the rest of the top of the motor. Every older Volvo I have worked on has oil on the top of it. Pul the plugs and clean the oil from them too as I can guarantee there is oil down there as well. Put it back together and try it. if it still doesn't start it could be the coil, crank sensor or cam sensor. I would still like to see if it tries to start on starting fluid just to be sure it is not a fuel delivery issue.
