Hi guys,

I love my 97 Sportage 4x4, but she is quite fond of the check engine light- It goes on a LOT!

Everything from needing a new gas cap to 02 sensors going out- The local show charges me $100 to check it and the local Autozone doesn't have a scanner to check the light for me.

I found a couple of code readers on-line and was wondering what you guys thought- here they are- Thanks a million!!
