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

    Perhaps something like this might be of use : http://www.skpang.co.uk/highspeed-iso9141.htm
    Also see an entire forum on the subject : http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/engine-management-obd-ii-engine-diagnostics-etc/

    You can search these forums, as there are a number of products to help you achieve what you want.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
