Question about 1996 Volvo 850
I took it to my mechanic and he turned off my engine light, and he told me I have to drive alot, so when he sets the monitor in between my front seats, there are some codes that are not done yet, I have two codes left to be done. I have been doing alot of driving and my mechanic has turned off the check engine light twice, and i need to get my inspection asap, please help me.
What are the problem codes that come back with the ck eng light and whats been done to fix the problem /a drive cycle can take up to 250 Miles and needs to have 35 mile non stop drives in that time

The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.
When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.
