Every OBD-II error code is a warning that something could be very wrong inside your car. It can tell the difference between a broken gas cap and a more expensive fuel pump or oxygen sensor problem, but you have to pay attention to what it is telling you. The only way to tell is to plug in a scanner and see what's up.

Keep in mind that OBD-II is a standard in only the broadest sense, and some carmakers use proprietary codes and keep their meaning secret. Although it can't compare with the Tuffy's more sophisticated device, there's a lot you can do with a $100 auto scanner or kit that uses a notebook or a PDA. The bottom line is that an OBD-II scanner is essential equipment for today's shade-tree mechanic.
Here at Tuffy we use a Diagnostic machine not a code reader, We will find and fix your car rather than through parts at it at your expense.
