I am sorry for the delay in getting a response to you. Sometimes we get alot of customers and just can not keep up. Sometimes you just have to wait for the correct tech to login.Do you even still need help. Sometimes customers seek help elsewhere or figure it out on their own before we get to each and everyone.I am sure I can help a lot or a little at least something if you give me a chance and work with me. I am going to get an answer to you regardless if you reply or not sooner or later.If your concern is urgent reply and let me know and if you have anything more you think will help me, to help you, let me know. I work on here normally 3pm-3am central. Thanks Chris

It's a 2003 Volvo xc70 I change out the engines and I won't start it cranks
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 2 years ago.
Since the engine will crank, that means we just need to figure out what is missing then work on that to figure out why its not running. Have you, can you, or do you know how to check the fuel pressure, ignition spark, and injector pulse. Accidentally damaging a crank or cam sensor or there wiring or connector is a possible cause.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks Chris

Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 2 years ago.
125 is low compresison, it can run on that but its very low. Do you have good fuel pressure, and are the injectors pulsing.
