I saw harbor freight has cheap scan tools, are any of these worth a damn? Im trying to find one to maybe fix some trouble codes in my truck, and fix my non working gas gauge.

for a do it yourself, id look at MAc tools line of hand held scanners, i have 2, the first i bought was like 65 bucks., scans, clears, shows readiness indicators, which is a big help for me living in MA, for inspections, and it automatically reads vin number so no wasting time programming, and the newest one mac just came out with has all teh same features, plus additional buttons for scrolling up and down, id definately spend the extra bucks for the scrolling buttons. its that much nicer. -jim

We've got an Equus 3130 at the house. I'm a big fan of it. Logs all the real time data, has a print to computer function so I can save it if I want, detects the VIN, has an O2 testing feature, has all the specific non-generic codes form the OEM as well as the normal ones. It's handy.
