    I know that all 1996 and newer cars are supposed to have OBD II, but Im not sure if that applies in europe. I also know that all of the ports have to be within 2 (i think) feet of the steering wheel, and labeled. Your manual should describe the location if you have one in the car.

    There is some info here: http://www.obdii.com/connector.html but it looks like the rule was only for US.

    Does anyone know if the 1988 Toyota Corolla FX has ODB-I or ODB-II? Where would I check?

    88 Corolla will have ODB-I.

    In US, only 96+ cars are required to have ODB II. Period. ODB III is in post deveploment stage and last time I heard, they are going to deploy that by 2006.

    If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway

    1. What year is it?

    2. Is it in the US?

    3. If you look around the driver side (often times, it's hidden), do you see a connector that looks like this?:
