What Scantool / Gauge to get?
I am pretty new here, second post, but I've got some questions that I can't seem to find a good answer to.
My truck recently broke down, cranks but won't start. I rented one of those scanners from Autozone, and pulled 2 codes, P0404 and P0405. I'm not sure those are the reason the vehicle won't start. It never ran poorly, it just wouldn't start one day (the night before everything was working perfectly when I parked it).
So, my question is, I want to be able to pull more than codes, and I am looking into getting a better scanner or one of those systems that also reads real-time data, since that could give me things like ICP so I can actually troubleshoot what is going on. From what I've read on these forums, my problem is likely something to do with the HPOP or at least the HPO system.
So what should I buy to do this? Scangauge II? Will it be able to work as both a diagnostic tool and a gauge later on? Are there better alternatives? Thanks guys,
