OBD I Code Reader
I just added a 1989 SC to the driveway (a friend for the '95 4.6L).
I bought it for $1K knowing it had a misfire on 3 & 4.
A new coil pack, plug wires & DIS module later and I'm hitting on all six and running nicely.
I am, however, still getting a MIL/ check engine light. I can smell that the exhaust is rich when I get heavy on the throttle. I'm assuming this is from the oxygen sensors being 22 years old- giving the EEC a poor signal and subsequently defaulting to a rich condition...
My question is though, who makes or where do I find a good quality scanner/ code reader for my OBD I PCM? everything available out there seems to be focused on OBD II. Autozone had a cheap version that gave you codes with a series of LED light flashes. Not for me.
Ideally, I'd like to have a unit or some software that I can use on the '95 (OBD II), AND the '89 SC (OBD I) and plug into and communicate with on my laptop.
Please let me know if anyone has helpful input-
I'll get SC pics up soon!
...it's a five-speed
