ShrimpBrime: I suppose understanding the systems, what they do, how they work and why.... Makes for a good tech. If I carried the attitude that all new gen stuff is a POS and not learn about it, I'd be out of a career.

ShrimpBrime: Eddie ever has a problem with any OBDII system on any car he owns, I have a 500$ diagnostic tool. It does everything except program ECM. If the system allows, I can actuate sensors, lighting, blend door actuators, light duty diesel aftertreatment diag ect.

austin86: Most dealer techs/mechs are rather green and are worked like a call center rep, they get a guide, if said problem is not in the guide they can't fix the problem. sad to see some many places work like that these days.

austin86: We had info on just about everything that happened when the CEL was on, speed, gear, RPM, AFR, brake and throttle use, AC settings heck even the tire pressure was in the logs. Dealers are going to give you the dealer run around, that's nothing new.

austin86: BTW if the CEL light was on in the Honda it should log the code, the data that gets logged in modern cards is crazy. I was helping my uncle with a BMW x3, the CEL would come and go. He had a code reader and we pull the log of the codes.

austin86: If the air meter/MAF or O2 starts outputting bad/wrong data the TB can adjust itself to offset that wrong data. Back in the days of DBW if the 02 or MAF was off the car would just ping/misfire after the AFR was too far out of range.

austin86: Your Toyota tech is lieing, very few cars need the TB adjusted, that's a turbo VW/volvo thing, if a Toyota needs the TB tuned regularly then something else is wrong. The TB tune is a band-aid fix at best. its tends to be a sign of a bad air meter/MAF or O2

austin86: non drive by wire throttle don't need tunning, unless if its a German car lol, most any car will auto tune the throttle over time. needing to tune the throttle is like saying Honda's need winter air in the tires.

austin86: oh and you can get cars with out all the added electronic crap, its called a base model (not a SE) I bought a 2019 fiesta off the lot new for 10k, no tablet in the dash, no power windows, no auto trans and so on, only one O2, and a few crank/cam triggers.

austin86: zila1 you don't need a scanner to work on most modem cars. I don't have one and never once needed it. The CEL will go out after the problem is fixed and if not just pull the bat and let it sit for a wile.
