Which scan tool do you have?

I currently have a Matco pro scan plus but it doesn't tell me enough so I've been thinking about upgrading to the Matco determinator till I started reading up on the auto enginuity software again this morning.. I play with a few 6.0's, dmax, and cummins, but maybe you AE ppl can help me out with this one.. I was looking at the total ford bundle, but can I still do dmax and cummins with this? And if so, will it just let me check codes or do I need to get a gm and Chrysler bundle?
And for you ppl with the determinator, you like it, or is it a supersized pro scan plus?
Plz no snap on comments cause they won't get another penny from me lol..

Re: Which scan tool do you have?

I read somewhere recently that the Cummins info/data was spotty, even with the Chrysler bundle. I don't know for a fact, I'm just recalling from my bad memory.

I'm going to put a genysis evo 5.0 on a 2006 ford f-350 6.0 tomorrow if all goes as planned. Going to see what all it shows on the data stream and codes and such.

The genysis evo seemed to work fine on the 06 6.0 f-350. It ran live data stream for the engine and transmission with the option to set up custom data stream to also Br able to record it on a test drive and back play it later.

I have an EVO, bought is for, i have no idea why. I am not a real mechanic but my F150 was acting up and the price was right. Could you maybe enlighten me on what the numbers should be? My trans temp, not towing is 151 but i have no idea the high and lows of anything.

I'm not sure what the temps should be. There should be someone floating around here that knows.

What kind of parameter information are you looking for? Are you experiencing a specific concern?
