OBD-II can also keep your vehicle drivable in problem situations known as limp-home mode. In the old days, if a misfire occurred, fuel being dumped in the exhaust and not being ignited would wreak havoc on the catalytic converter and cause it to overheat. http://www.obd2s.com/launch-crhd-heavy-duty-code-reader-p676.html

If my Check Engine light is lit, is my car losing power? The answer is no. Check Engine light will primarily light if the PCM recognizes an error that will cause an emissions problem. These errors will not alter the fuel, spark or boost of the vehicle; therefore you may not experience a drivability problem. http://www.obd2s.com/launch-x431-can-bus-ii-connector-p632.html

It may have been the case had it not been for the intervention of SEMA. SEMA worked with the manufacturers to develop the program, therefore protecting their industry. OBD-II is designed to allow cars to run cleaner and more efficient and it does just that. Newer cars emit less emissions and have more horsepower than cars before OBD-II. http://www.obd2s.com/launch-update-for-x431-mast-gx3-diagun-p592.html

In the current market there are also products available through the aftermarket that will allow owners to check their own codes and view the data list themselves. These products were created to save the consumer money as repair shops charge a labor charge just to hook up the scan tool and view the diagnostic trouble codes. One such product is the AutoTap, which makes a program for Windows or for your Palm Pilot. This software allows the user to view sensor data in real-time to know what their car is doing at that moment. http://www.obd2s.com/launch-x431-can-bus-ii-connector-p632.html

OBD-II stands for on-board diagnostics and they are standard on all vehicles manufactured today. In the late 1970s, auto manufacturers began using electronics or computers to monitor and control powertrain functions. This was done as a way to control emissions on new cars to comply with government standards. http://www.obd2s.com/autoboss-pc-max-wireless-vci-p455.html

HD OBD equips technicians to do their job more quickly and reliably, which helps avoid unnecessary repairs and trips back to the shop. On the other hand, HD OBD systems may detect issues unnoticed prior to use of the onboard diagnostic system, but now must be repaired. In this case, HD OBD would require an accelerated repair schedule and - at least in the near term - increased maintenance costs. http://www.obd2s.com/autosnap-gd860-full-set-vehicle-diagnostic-tool-p481.html

The EPA allowed a phased-in approach to provide OEMs sufficient time to perfect their systems before requiring HD OBD for an entire engine lineup. http://www.obd2s.com/cat-caterpillar-communication-adapter-3-3177485-diagnostic-interface-p589.html

What are Truck Manufacturers Saying? "We have not finalized pricing for model-year 2011," said Shaun Skinner, VP general manager at Isuzu Commercial Truck of America. Skinner refers to model-year 2011 since Isuzu's MY 2011 will be the company's first model-year equipped with EPA 2010-compliant diesel engines. http://www.dieselscan.com/scania-vci-2-p23.html

Consider this statistic from Detroit Diesel's Fact Sheet on EPA 2010: Pollutants emitted by 65 trucks in 2010 will equal the pollution created by just one truck in 1988. That's a staggering 65:1 emissions reduction in 22 years. HD OBD is an early detection system to ensure 2010 compliant trucks operate at these reduced emissions levels, not just when new, but throughout the life of those vehicles. http://www.dieselscan.com/liebherr-lidos-spare-parts-and-repair-manuals-2011-p48.html
