How you doing, just woundering what's the best OBD for reading fault codes on a Mondeo Mk3 2.0L TDCI.?

 

I've spent a £215 quid for something that never got fixed, thats right my Mondeo, so I'm trying to find the fault with my own sences looking, listening feeling it.

 

They couldn't find the fault and never gave me the fault codes needed to trace its where abouts. They said they've put it on a rolling road and a pressure test on my injectors and still they couldn't find it.

 

Thoweing money away and I'm trying to save too. :angry:

An inexpensive Bluetooth OBD plug and the Torque Pro app on an Android phone is all I use and it works fine for me.

This is a popular although basic code reader (I have one myself to clear the EML)

Its is widely used by mondeo owners for reading the faults and erasing alot of them.

 

Another popular choice is the f-super

This though, needs you to have a laptop to plug it into, but, from what I understand gives alot more options compared to the cheaper one linked above

No worries, just bear in mind your cars age is just before the OBDII standard, so it may support only OBDI and not OBDII, so get confirmation from the seller it will work, or a promise of a refund if it doesnt :)
