Excuse my ignorance as I’m still teaching myself about automobile maintenance. What would be good diagnostic software to get so I could have a hands on tools to start learning the different modes and programs such as fuel trims etc? Is there anything I could hook up to a laptop and run through odb2? Thank you I’m advance
Thank you for the response. I stumbled acrossed your youtube video explaining the difference between autotap vs autoenguity. I found an autotap set on ebay and decided to give that a whirl. you have taught me quite a bit and I thank you so much. keep it up!
I had the same question! Thanks for putting this site together. I found your video on fuel trims and it was like a whole new world began to open up. My ‘basic scanner’ will show live data and is great to peek inside the PCM but it is not bi-directional.
Thanks again Matt. I like your style and approach to repairs.
Yes it is. Looks like there isn’t much monitoring to these forums!!
