Buying a scanner WHICH ONE??

Just bought first diesel and its a high mileage truck 2007 F350 with 192000. Just found out ficm was bad so here we go. Ordered one from swamps waiting on it to arrive. Just wondering what an effective but inexpensive scanner would be I know nothing about these so if anyone could share some info with me I would appreciate it.

thanks

Autoenginuity (AE) Total Ford Bundle. Best bang for the buck. There's a little bit of a learning curve, but it's not too hard to use.

Autoenginuity is great, you can also get scanxl with the enhanced ford bundle from PPE. Costs about half of what AE does, but as of now it doesn't support sending data for tests. If money is no option, get AE. If you want similar functonality on a budget, get scanxl.

I think it can run on some Palm brand devices.

It would be great if it would run on my I-pad or on a Ubuntu or linux system, ah just dreaming

I bought a scan gauge II from BPD. I use mine to look at the trans temp, oil temp, water temp and system volts. You can also look at boost,ipr,ipc and a host of others. It doesn't do pyro temps. So i'll need a separate gauge for that.
