SIDE NOTE: U.S. Federal law required all vehicle manufacturers to meet On Board Diagnostics, Second Generation or OBD II standards by 1996. In order to meet this standard, the automobile's on-board computer must monitor and perform diagnostic tests on vehicle emissions to ensure that the vehicle is operating at an acceptable (legal) emission level. All 1996 and newer passenger vehicles sold in the United States are USA OBD II compliant.


Product Review - Bob Pattengale

"This is the tool I use to diagnose difficult intermittent driveability problems"

"The limitations of OBD II generic scan tools usually relate to small display screens and slow sample rates of live scan data. If you’re willing to invest a little more money, the EASE OBD II generic PC-based scan tool has several very useful features.
Those I find invaluable are unlimited data recording and customized data graphing. This is the tool I use to diagnose difficult intermittent driveability problems."
