What scan tool? These new ones any good??
Well lets start with... I have an old Autoxray scan tool. Works good for what I need it. Now I have a 97 Ford powerstroke 7.3 and it does not read it. Or should I say does not read it properly. Truck is running good now so not in a hurry.
I have seen these new scan tools that work with a laptop or Bluetooth. I am not a bluetooth guy. So a cable to a laptop (Or desktop, got one in the garage) would be great. You can pick them up (ebay) for about $20. Then you need decent software to go with them. No freaking clue. Everyone say this program is good but does not do xxx or xxx. Ideas on a good program???
I seen you guys post one (AutoEnginuity with Ford package) Looking about $400. For that price would like to get ABS and trans codes for several vehicles.
I don't mind paying a few bucks but if it will do about the same as what I have, I hate to spend money on a very small upgrade. My old scanner does all the old stuff and OBDII but not the diesels, ABS or Trans stuff.
