it was one of those days review of the SUAOKI OM123 OBD II Scanner saved the day.

Wow its now LE$$ THEN $25

The Check Engine Light in my car came on two weeks before my dreaded annual smog test. This would have caused an automatic fail in California . I asked my friend if I could borrow his OBD II Scanner. I was surprised how easy it was to use and everything it was capable of doing. In my case the code was for a faulty coolant temperature sensor. Live Data showed the engine temperature sensor was reporting the engine was cold when it was at operating temperature (hot). The sensor cost me $20 and that fixed the problem.

A Mechanic hourly labor is $125. I would have been charged to read the code, trouble shooting and replacing the part. Overall cost would have been about $250. So $20 for a sensor, about $35 for the scanner, that would make a $195 savings.
Now that have seen this OBD II scanner in action I plan on buying myself this SUAOKI OM123 scanner. What a life saver. I tried this scanner on my friend’s new cars and I was amazed at what it can do.
Like my review on the Lii-500 this scanner has earned my respect.
