CHECK ENGINE LIGHT

1998 Volvo 240

Engine Cooling problem
1998 Volvo 240 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 152, 00 miles

I was test driving this car (used) and the whole time the check engine light was stayed on. The dealer said it was a Sensor problem, but the higher the temperature rose the light consistently blinked. Even with the air-conditioning going. What might be causing this problem. It is a very clean car and runs really good to have this problem?

Blinking check engine light is an indication of misfiring and engine need to be check for tune up at 1st
Have to have the codes, an OBDII reader is needed to get the codes
Codes should indicate what sensor and what is going on
