Answers :

Broken cranckshaft will have a knocking noise, did you check the compression, perhaps the cambelt slipped a few notches due to stretching. Check fuel supply.

I replaced the timing belt on my volvo s90 and now it won't start, it cranks but won't turn. I checked to make sure the timing is "on the money". I also checked to make sure the tensioner and cam shaft sensor are working. While cranking, I noticed the tach does not move, I don't know if that sheds light on the situation or not.I also checked for compression in the cylinders. At this point, I'm guessing it could be the crank sensor. Can someone tell me where that is on this car? Thanks
