Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone else had had this problem. My car is a used 95 turbo wagon 850 - with 100,000 miles on it. I just put about 1000 miles on it, when the "service" light came on, then a few days later the "check engine" light came on as well.
Ok, I did a bit of reading on Bay 13, the most common cause is a leak in some of the rubber elbows in the engine bay - now, my question is, as I'm sure some of you may have encountered the problem, so how much did it cost to fix? I hear the elbows themselves are cheap at the V dealer, how much was your overall costs including inspection etc?
What I'm afraid of, is that this is a bigger problem, as I don't know the history of the car. So, have any of you gotten the 2-3-2 code from the A2 diagnostic port, and found out you had a deeper engine problem(s)?
I can go back to the V dealer I bought it from, and he'll probably give me a good deal, but I don't want to get ripped off either. Thanks for all your (future) help!
Did you get a 2-3-2?
You don't have to use any tools or have any mechanical experience to see the signs of bad elbows.

I did use bay13's instructions ( printed it out and brought it down to my car ) and it's after 30 days, so warranty doesn't apply anymore.
I reset the CE light, but not the service light yet. Now, what I'm concerned about is, that the CE doesn't come back (has been 2 days). So, what IF there is a problem, and now I'm choosing to ignore it???
Anyway, the safest bet is for me to bring it in back to the dealer anyway...
