Sorry for the relpy to list, but I think everyone might benefit...
Surprisingly, Advanced Auto Parts has a little computer they plugged
into my 1996 Ford Explorer and told me the codes returned for my Check
Engine light, all I had to do was look them up in a book... and they
did it for free. :) I now have a 2005 Escape hybrid, dunno if they
can plug into it, but presume it should be no prob.
