I think he was refering to your attitude not your sexual preference. You might want to check that demeanor before a mod does it for you.

Have a nice day.

wow, looks like you took care of it for him. never understood people who act like that.

anyhew, I use a tech2 when I can get my hands on it, but it'* a little prohibitively expensive for most... (myself included). for those with the obd1, or the obd1/2 hybrid, I'm told that there'* an actron model that works out well... DrJay has one for sale right now in the 'for sale' forums.
