    you are "gud" at it? doubtful...

    if you want to view the "temprature" of your engine, you need to get an OCB2 Connection for your PC

    every car has some sort of OBD2 computer (required since 1995.. right?), just hook it up and you get all the dianostic information the ECU has

      Oh My God.

      Your Kidding, right???

      First, I am sure he wants to VIEW it, not FEW it. And, it is OBD2, and NOT OCB2.

      Phew, tragedy averted.

        Nope, not quite. Dianostic" is spelled Diagnostic"

        But yes, his message seems correct. Use something like the "OBD2 All-In-One Serial PC Scan Tool". That should do it.

            I thought ODB2 was from 96 and up.

                I think the poster was referring to your poor spelling. However, since their spelling was equally as bad, or worse, I would ignore it.
