Coolant light turns on and off on 1995 Volvo 960

The othe days the mechanic left the lid for the coolant off and and the car got heated on the way home. There is no water in the oil or oil in the water. The water pumps works. The car up to now is not heating up since my nephew took the air out of the line which was supposedly
causing the thermstat not to work. Now the coolant light turns on and off.

I have a 1995 volvo 960, my abs light came on a few days after i had tires put on

Without looking into it too far I would say that one or more of your wheel speed sensors was damaged in the process of changing the tires. That is the most common reason for the abs light to come on. In order to properly diagnose this issue the car will need to be connected to an OBD reader so that you can get the error code from the car.

How do you put in a new cam position sensor in a volvo 960?

That's because it's in the distributor. He's replacing the whole thing. A good idea if you never took one apart.

We have a 95 Volvo 960 wagon and when the heater is turned on it drains the engine coolant and then the coolant light comes on??

You have a coolant leak past the heater valve in the hose or in the heater core. It must be dripping to the road and not in the floor or you would notice the wet floor.

My Volvo 960 stalls while driving

You should start by checking the diagnostic trouble codes. Here are some directions!

These are fairly reliable, with few stalling issues, but they used to have problems with the coolant temperature sensors, and the intake manifold gasket leaks, both of which could cause your problem.

After you read the codes, or have it done for you, post the codes and I can direct you further.
