Hi guys, thinking of getting one of the clone Tech 2's for my VX Berlina Wagon 5.7 and my sons 06 Rodeo 3.6. I know they can diagnose and clear codes but what else can you do with them. e.g. If I had a bad spark plug or lead can it tell me which one it is? Can you adjust the idle speed? Can you do anything in the tune? Just wondering what sort of things they can or can't do. Thanks for any info.
Sid

if you know how to use it you can diagnose one weak cylinder, but you will need to work out why that cylinder is weak
I prefer it to read long term fuel trims, which is a good indication of how healthy/well tuned your car is
you can change idle speed, calibrate speedo for different wheels/tyres, you can't change the tune as such
you can read current and history codes that have not set the CEL

Hey Sid, keep us updated on how it goes. Are you buying one of those ~$400 ones ?
