Hello all you 996 lovers!

This is a short story and I have one question at the end.

My automobile experiences have been with cars from the 60's.

I owned a couple nice stock (65 & 67) corvettes. I even built a

replica 66 AC Cobra from the chassis up. Drove it for 20 years and sold in

last year. I rode motorcycles for years and finally fate caught up with me

in July were I ended up in the hospital for one week and two surgerys.

So I couldn't stand the void in the garage (no more motorcycles) and began

looking at the last sports car I will probably own. At first it was 78 + 911SC's.

Then I discovered for whatever reason that $20,000 would get me into a 10 year old,

low mileage, 1,2 or 3 owner pristine 996. Water cooled too!

I am a very content owner of a beautiful 996 6 sp Carrera 2 coupe.

After driving it for 2,000 miles.... yep, the CEL came on.

Technology is a good thing but I have been "old school" all these years and now

I need to change. My question is this:

I am willing to diagnose the causes and some I might be able to fix. What exactly is the

package (scan tool, software, interface connectors, etc.) I need to procure to do this?

You can purchase a low cost OBD2 scan tool from Jegs for $80 (extract & clear codes only) then use our site or whatever for code ID...a definate worth while component for the garage. Go to www.jegs.com and pop in part nmber 390-3030

Yesterday I picked up an OBD2 Car Reader. Kragen (O'Reily's) had them. Read enough to understand

it's purpose displaying DTC's. I only have a P1539 fault. Canvasing this web site, I now can

go forward and deeper into exactly what needs to be repaired. Thanks Loren and all of you that

delt with this before. What a nifty little gizmo.
