Thanks for posting this Brad. I have a SharkTuner but still haven't had sufficient time to hook it up and play with it. Ed

I use the Hammer several times a week, great tool but nothing like an OBDII, the computing power back then wasn't like it is today. It will tell you a lot of things but won't go in to huge detail on minor things like you were asking about in RL.

It will tell you if all the engine sensors are working, knocking, load signals, ABS, Airbag, PSD, A/C clutch.

Sean am I better to just buy a snap-on or mac mentor and get the correct cartridge and connector.

I doubt they have a set up on those that will work for our cars. That's also a lot of $$. Do I want one? Hell yes, but for other cars.

I'd stick with the ones we have avail to us. I prefer the hammer for diag, and ST for tuning.
