      @True Contrarian The Bluetooth adapters are great, I use one with Torque from the app store and you can do a lot more than an Actron for less money and using the computing power of the phone you've already paid for

    I've been trying to diagnose a problem with my cooling fans. The fans just wont turn on when they're supposed to. Do you think a scan tool can show me my true coolant temperature or access my fans?

                    Hello Mr Scotty I've watched your videos for years I need your help with a 2001 audi a6 2.7L Turbo 146k miles,, I can drive it for days in a row but every couple days the gas wont respond to the rpms and it will die, then it wont start for a hour or so, then it will be fine again !? The check engine light is on but when I have it scanned to comes back as error instead of a diag code!? Please help!!!!!!

                      You can do this with the torque app on an android phone and a $3 OBD2 Bluetooth connector, no need for a scan tool, tool does look nice though

                        I agree with Scotty But be aware a code may not show the reason for it. It's like you get a a lot of headaches and assume it's allergeis or cold or stress while it's only a symptom of a more serious problem. If I get a check engine I scan it it, save the report and then clear it. If the CEL comes back on it's normally the "True" reason not the side effects. If you go chasing issues then you may spend a ton of money and never get to the problem.

                                Scotty, I hope you can help me. I just bought a 2008 Lexus RX350 and when I drove it to work this morning I noticed my eyes burning and started getting a headache. Then when I went home it happneed again but it was worse. What could it be emitting to cause that? I only have ever felt like before one other time when I drove my Dads 2000 BMW. Thanks.

                                                In California, your car will fail even if you 'reset' the codes and then take your car for inspection before the codes re-appear. That's because you have to have driven your car at least 50 miles so that the appropriate tests are performed by the computer, otherwise they will show as 'incomplete' and the technician won't perform the inspection until you drive more miles. Of course, if you drive 50 miles the codes will re-appear and you'll fail inspection anyways!
                                                The only thing left to do is to fix the problems which are causing the codes to be tripped in the first place.

                                                                  Seal hasn't leaked since.

I have had several check engine lights and they always require an independent mechanic to fix the fault properly. Of course they are good for testing unknown cars, but I get my used cars from good small dealerships. If you are buying privately then you bring along a mechanic with an expensive scan tool and knowhow.
