Default Got a 91 leggy turbo and i need help

Hey everyone I bought a 91 legacy sedan w/ 170,xxx miles auto with the LSD . Seems to run and drive ok but does need work.

Check engine lights on but goes out intermittently abs light is on. Slight coolant smell and exhaust or mayb oil smell. Sunroof leaks on back corners. And needs much interior work and bodywork which is the least of my worries.

Any general advice advice would be great. Anyone with parts for sale also I need a lot. Recommendations for exhaust intake Nd suspention mods too. The brakes are ify what's compatible?

Thats it for now thnx

You need to find out what codes are being thrown. Don't worry about mods until you get everything working properly with the exception of it breaks, upgrade.

You will not find an OBDI scanner, they were all manufacturer-proprietary. No cheap universal aftermarket ones as with OBDII. Snap-On may have modules for it but such a setup will probably be out of your price range.
Fortunately you don't need a scanner to get engine codes, Follow the info here to retrieve them-
