Self Diagnostic Testers?
2002 Ranger XLT SC Off Road 3.0LV6 Auto,shift on fly. I WAS gonna buy an Actron Code reader at Autozone for $59.99,since my $1000 extended warranty expired(WASTED MONEY!).Now I almost gotta do ALL my Repairs that I can.Although OK right now ,are they worth it? I do like Electronic "Toys" and feel Unless the Lotto helps me ,I'm gonna drive my Truck till my Body or it gives out!Also being literally a "Mountain Man"!,and 45 miles from the nearest dealer,I'd like a OBD2 code reader.My Bro ,a mechanic of 30 years said the Actron is OK?His shop is 100 mile round trip too!My Bro in Law worked Ford Dealerships for 25 years,but do to rotator cuff wrenching front ends,etc.,Now teaches College Auto Tech. He's also 100 miles round trip.So I think a code reader might be something I'd like instead of an MP3 player or these "other" Electronic Toys! Boys??? By the way I got a refund out the door from Autozone,apparently the Sale paper they had by front door(Stack of 50!),Expired! I handed them the stack but they wouldn't honor the "Sale" price! So,my other "option" is Kragen,NAPA,Carquest,or depending on Ya'lls response,Internet purchase?
