Toyota Car and Truck Diagnostic Tools
One of the biggest concerns with modern computerised car engines is that it's hard to repair them. Engine diagnostic tools help you see the problem with your Toyota, so that you know whether it's something you can deal with yourself, or if it needs a week at the servo.
How Do Car Diagnostic Tools Work?
All automotive diagnostic service tools work in basically the same way. You plug your Toyota scan tool into the car's OBD II port and it diagnoses the problem. Depending on your needs, you can get different levels of scanner.
- Basic Scanners: A basic scanner just reads off the diagnostic code so that you can look it up. If you have access to the service manuals that can be all you need.
- Advanced Scanners: If you have a larger budget, you can get a more advanced scanner that not only lists the code but also tells you what it means.
