I bought a 96 850 in 2008 in kentucky and had a new engine put in a week later. The guys at the Volvo shop brought to my attention that the 'check engine' light was on, but there was no problem, it just wouldnt go off. I don't know why they didnt reset it, but they didnt and they said there were no problems. However, now I am living in Pennsylvania and I am trying to get the car
inspected but the guys at the shop said that they cant pass my car because the check engine light is on and they cant tell what it means. They want me to take it to a transi shop and pay big $$ to have them fix the car in order for it to pass inspection, but I have been looking around online at possible reasons for the 'check engine' light to come on and it seams like something the guys at this shop in PA should have no problem figuring out....I found out lots of reasons why the light is on, for instance the transition fluid level could be low or needs to be changed. is this really something that the PA auto shop guys cant fix to pass my car for inspection?
