which code reader should i buy for this car?? the glow plug light flashes on and the car lacks power, idles a bit lumpy too. Might have an injector out, but as i like tinkering with cars and buy and sell a few i need a code reader anyway, just one that will also read the ecu on my 02 tdci 130 mondeo. Dont really want to spend any more than 100 and im not familiar with the OBD, OBDII stuff. What does that mean?
Any advice?
cheers
