Blinking Service Light

After I did my head gasket job I have a blinking service light.

What is the process to have it stop blinking?

Thanks

Re: Code P0120 - Throttle Position Sensor

I'll look into it. I fooled around with the wire a tiny bit this morning and reseated it into the TPS When I first start ignition the check engine light isn't on. It takes a second to click on. If I start the engine and then rev it or take out of park, it turns on right at that moment of either of t...

Car Inspection Fail: gas tank pressure test fail

Hi all,

At the end of this month I need to register my 95 850.

It was checked recently and I did not pass the gas tank pressure test during inspection.

How would you go about diagnosing where the leak is?

Is there a known spot where 850s develop a leak like this?

Thanks

Code P0120 - Throttle Position Sensor

Hi all, So after battling my car back from the grave (blown head gasket from broken water pump propeller) all I have left as a check engine code is for the throttle body position sensor I already went to junkyard and switched out the throttle position sensor with another one. It could be possible I ...

Re: Coolant Pipe Bolt Hole Stripped! 850 Topic is solved

Holy moly what a maybe solved mess. So I went and got 3 coolant pipe gaskets and stacked them up and I believe it is sealed. But wait for it... I have just discovered that I have a cam cover leak behind my timing belt that was running down exactly onto the coolant pipe. Its quite possible that I ori...

Re: Odd Exhaust Valve Issue 1999 V70

Yeah this has me puzzled and intrigued as well. Thanks for all the replies, seriously. You guys always have ideas that don't even cross my mind. So stuff rope into the spark plug hole? That is a new one for me. I guess nylon will work best because of lower risk of losing fibers in there and gumming...
