    Where to buy one??????

    I have a 1993, so it MUST be OBD-1, not OBD-2.

    Motor seems to have small hick-up's...

    when you find them I want one too, I haven't been able to find anything shy of super-expensive scan tools.

    You're better off getting a snanner that shows ongoing data and not just codes!Just a thought!

    Do you have a check engine light? Reader is not much help without a code being set.

    As was mentioned a scan tool is a better option.

    If it is showing a CEL AutoZone will scan and clear it for free.

    I dont need one that reads the codes.
    My car has never thrown any codes, not once.

    I need more of a diagnostics tool than code reader, somethings that reads the ongoing data, like grcforce327 hinted...




    Any ideas???

    Sorry there are two types of OBD scanners, code and diagnostic. Here is the diagnostic version I own :

    Kinda expensive for occasional use but invaluable for diagnosing issues with modified engines.

    Roe stocks the Ease product. If your computer/laptop does not have a serial port be sure to get the USB version.
