Usb Obd11 Elm327 Fault Code Reader Any Good.

16 July 2014 - 02:08 PM

Hi guys....I bought a USB OBD11 fault code reader off ebay...after a lot of faffing
about to get it to connect to the laptop...I have got it up and running
now,



http://www.ebay.co.u....84.m1439.l2649



Using Scantool.net software it came with...only able to use the first 2 pages of info unless I pay for the full prog,



I'm new to using these devices...only got it to clear a fault light on
my daughters KA after the coil pack failed which it did without problem,



So out of curiosity...just what can I do with it...I dont understand
most of the data it displays interesting as it is me being from a by
gone age....my old landrover is steam driven...but nice to know just what I can do with it,



Is there any other free software available that may give more info that the scantool stuff I have.

Focus 1.6P Zetec How Hard To Change The Timing Belt.

17 July 2013 - 09:51 PM

My son in law has just bought a one owner from new 1.6 petrol Zetec focus 2002 with 65.000mls on the clock,

 

Its never had the cambelt change just wondering how hard a job it is on this model of focus,

 

I have changed one on my wifes single cam 1.6 Astra and also the belt on my 200tdi Landrover engine,

 

Just wondering what components will be needed along with a new belt and any special tools.
