    Cant do much while the engine is running with mecs as far as I know. Let me rephrase. You can read what has happened as far as codes, or put into a test mode while running, but it is not like obd-2. Obd-2 is a real time type system, whereas you cant really monitor pids (paremeter identification), or look at real time info on earlier systems. I am going off of the mecs systems that are used on the Probe, a close cousin, with Ford diagnostics (NGS). Someone with a mecs scan tool may be able to provide more info, but from a "I know what works on a 89 probe" standpoint, it wont get you very far in looking into anything but trouble codes.
