    OBD II scanner

    My DD started with the engine light deal again. Apparently it needs a new intake manifold gasket, but I just want to see if this it associated to the same problem.

    Anybody have an OBD II scanner I could check my codes on? I will be trying a new mechanic most likely as I have no time to do this myself and I dont want to go in blind and be taken by a crooked mechanic.

    Also, I work in the Kipling & The Queensway area and there are alot of mechanics around here but I was wondering if anybody knows of a good one in the area?

    I drive from Hamilton to Toronto everyday so anybody with a scanner in that area would be great.

    Any info would help.

    Thanks

    thanks guys. the light went off for now but I know it will be back soon.(it comes on when it wants to) Am I right in assuming that there will be no codes if the engine light isnt on at the time?

    No, the ECM holds the codes for a set number of starts so they should still be in there. One of the most common ones I've seen is the evaporative leak code (on cars that I've scanned) and it usually relates to the gas cap. If it's not secured properly or has a bad seal it can trip intermittently. I had a little bit of rust in the filler neck and that was enough to trip the light.

    Get it scanned as soon as you can to be sure, don't worry about the light being out.

    ya, it is a 2002 Saturn.
    Sorry I didnt get to you on Saturday, I had to attend a funeral. Also, I guess I shouldnt have disregarded the chech engine light so easily as I had the roughest ride of my life yesterday and had to limp into a local shop by my work. I told him to call me before he did anything but instead he proceeded to change my plugs and wires and tried to charge me $250. I am pretty pissed about that one. i gave him $200.
    I hate winter, you never have any time to fix anything and it is too damn cold to even do the simple things.

    I am pretty sure I still need to replace the Intake manifold gasket though. Anybody know a good place to do this? Everybody tells me to not try this one by myself.

    Whats so hard about the intake manifold gasket? Getting to it takes longer then changing it. I've done it already. I did it on the SL with the 1.9 4 cyl. the gasket cost 24 dollars and it is FelPro part No. FPMS96067 it comes with 2 studs 3 donut gaskets and the intake manifold gasket. Like I said it takes more time to get to it, pull off the old one, then to clean the head, put on the new gasket. The buttoning up is fairly easy, be very patient though, and loose fit the parts on with a loose fit (finger tight) before tightening, it will save you a lot of swearing and frustration.
