I am wondering if it is possible to retrieve the diagnostic codes for this car myself or do I have to take it and have it done. On some older cars I
remember being able to do some process to get the codes. My favorite was using a paperclip on my old firechicken.
In canada partsource will do it for free. In the us autozone will do it for free or a small fee. I would recommend finding a ford or an escort forum.
The guys on there will be able to help you save some cash.
hey guy you can go to autozone or any parts outlet that sells the cheap obd2 reader and pull the codes and look them up online.with the codereader
they usually give you a booklet and maybe find them in there
