UPDATE: Got her back

To update my last thread, I bought my PO '94 525 back from the guy I sold it to.

He made me an offer I couldn't refuse.
As in, he needed the $$$.

168k, and thought the HG had blown.
That's not the case.
Bad heater hose.
Car runs good, in need of TLC, and advice from the forum.

CEL is on, and stomp test is not working.??
I followed the instructions from a previous post, but no luck.
Maybe I'm doing it wrong?
I have done it successfully when I owned the car before, but it's not working now.
Any help would be most welcome!

VANOS needs to be done.
Oil sensor needs to be replaced.
Cooling system overhaul.
Thrust arms.
Oil leaks.

Pics to follow.
I pick it up tonight.
