Having recently purchased a 89 900, after about 3 days I had a fuel leak in one of the injectors. Two "O" rings were replaced and cured the problem, however for about 2 days the check engine light stayed on. I checked the manual and it told me that it may be a fuel injector problem. I suspect some air got into the system. Everything works fine now. I don't know if this helps...but that's my 2 cents worth!! J Karlheinz G.
