Pretty bummed…I was super excited as it was my favorite arcade game growing up. Took about an hour to assemble, screen has a steady glitch. Ive taken it back apart to ensure the cable was secure, flattened it out the best I could, all with the same result.Update #1 and Ive raised from 1 star to 2 due to the customer service thus far. They have been awesome and I already have a new unit on the way. They even applied a discount due to the effort of putting a non working one togather and having to disassemble to return. If my new unit works (and Im just going to swap out the screen/mother board) it will definitely be a 5 star rating. Once again, customer service has been top notch. Thanks for working with me today Matt!Update#2- they sent me a replacement, I only replaced the screen and CPU bc I didnt want to burn the time. Working perfect!I started with 1 star, bumped to 2, bumped to 5. Outside of having to wait, the disassembly, reassembly, and having to test the box back to the UPS store, I couldnt be happier! Customer service was top knotch. It was easy to put together, missing one drill hole but no big deal. However the sound doesnt work at all. My fiance was so excited as this was his birthday gift. He still really likes it, we just wish it had sound. I was very unhappy with this purchase. After taking the time to build and display I find out that 1 of the buttons doesnt work so I cant even play with somebody. Very disappointing because with a game like this you need every button to work. Ive called customer service twice and hung up because wait times are way too long. I got several other Arcade 1up machines, mainly to make my living room look like a working arcade.The assembly was easy, except for monitor installation, in which some screws were a bit tricky to drive.My unit came with the deck protector, to stop the graphics being rubbed off.The controls feel a little like an arcade machine, but if youve ever played a real arcade machine, youll notice the difference. Not bad, but you know its a toy. LOLArcade 1up doesnt tell you this, so I will. DONT leave your Arcade 1up machines on, all day, every day. After about a few weeks, I noticed a faded area appear around the edges of the screens, where the LEDs started cooking the thin film transfer layers off, a bit. Definitely cheap stock monitor. At least the brightness, and contrast are fairly well balanced. Ill just know not to run these machines, except when I actually intend to play them. Unlike some of my newer cabinets, the screen remains fairly well balanced, as far as black is concerned, when viewing at angles greater than 45 degrees from zero. Dont know why the newer ones (2019) look all gray, and washed out.The stereo audio is missing on two of the games, specifically, on the left channel. The system board outputs mono, but there was supposed to be a solder bridge between a couple of pads, to make the stereo mixdown to mono, or the mono option should have been set in the hidden menu, at the factory. I think Arcade 1up is working on a board fix.Dont know why, but someone at the Arcade 1up factory set the volume WAY, WAY, TOO LOUD. LOL. I have to stack a couple of paperback books on the speaker to quiet it down, a bit. Thats even on the low setting. This shouldve been correctly set at the factory. It wasnt.Its too bad the marquee doesnt light up. At least there are third parties out there, who are making lighted marquees for the Arcade 1up machines.Its still fun to play.These machines use half inch stock particle board, which is covered with a plastic laminate, for the inner facing sides, and edge to edge silkscreened vinyl for the outer facing sides. Im not sure if mini T-molding is used, or tape, for the edges. Probably the latter. LOL.I will be ordering the bat-top grips for the sticks, to replace the ball tops with. However, I believe Arcade 1up is now including bat-tops with newer production runs of this product. First, theres no denying the charm of these retro styled arcade cabinets. They are fun, nostalgic, packed well enough and assembly is pretty straight forward. The arcade cabinet itself is pretty sturdy but the joysticks and buttons arent of the highest quality. I purchased this cabinet fully knowing that I was going to make a few modifications to it. I purchased better buttons and joysticks, USB encoders, an amplifier, an HDMI adapter, and the optional riser stand which is a must as the cabinet sits quite low to the floor.While you can absolutely play the 3 games that come on the system, I used the cabinet more as a shell, and added a retro console to it which allows for more variety. Those modifications truly made this cabinet come to life but at an additional cost of about $100. Doing so was also fairly easy and only required a few additional tools. A quick search of YouTube will net people thinking about doing the same with plenty of tutorials.By itself, this Arcade1Up Street Fighter cabinet is a lot of fun. For those wanting to use it as a shell for a side arcade home project, its hard to go wrong with them. I like it a lot! I like to use the riser which you can get separate. I just ordered another one. When you build, just take time. It suggests not to use a drill but I just drilled slow and set the impact to 2 or 3 torx. Everywhere there was a wood dowel rod I placed a small drop of wood glue on end before I inserted, when adding the other side I put small drops on the dowels there too. Nice and sturdy. I ordered the Bat joystick ends which feels nicer than the gumball size. I love it! I always wanted an actual arcade system and this unit has made my childhood dream come true! Downside on this unit is that the mode for these street fighters are hard! Kept getting my butt kicked! As you can also see, my kids enjoy it!

Notes from the Community

This a great gadget for the golfer who loves to practice or tinker. It can record video and spits out data on each shot. I used it to identify a poor swing path. That took my drives from the 220-250 yds range with nice slice to 265 and straight. Next I looked at my swing speed and googled what my potential carry distance was with optimal launch conditions. Using the my data from the mevo vs this optimal data, I saw that I was launching the ball at 10° rather than the 12-14° needed. Rather than try to swing up more, I adjusted my driver from 8° stated loft to 10° and now Im carrying the ball 280+ yds. This thing isnt going to fix your swing for you but its a great tool to help you see somewhat of whats going on and maximize the swing speed youre already producing. I teach golf for a living and travel quite a bit for work. This device is very accurate and gives me all the information that I need. It does work best with the metallic stickers but can work without them. It gives you club and ball speed. Spin and smash factor as well as carry distance. Its a great device and it is a great investment for any golfer trying to improve your game. It also reviews your practice session with videos for each swing. The internet portal is pretty unique also. If youre looking for a product that is your best bang for your buck, you found it! Mevo works as advertised but it isnt as accurate at calculating total distance carried as I would like. I believe this is because it isnt tracking the ball inflight, rather calculating based on ball speed, spin, launch, etc. So outside factors like air density, temperature, etc can effect how close its predictions are to reality. That said the delta between reality and its calculation is consistent so you just need to factor that. Overall it is a good tool for measuring swing effectiveness and consistency. I wanted to find a way to measure clubhead/ball speed while practicing indoors, but could not get consistent output. After selecting the correct club on the app, measuring the distance of the placement of the device behind the ball (confirming that the distance settings on the app were correct), allowing for adequate ball flight into practice net), aligning the sights down my target line from a prone position, fixing the metallic stickers that were provided to the ball(which btw cost $25 if/when you need to order more), and eliminating all the potential sources of interference/noise, I could not get accurate or consistent readings during indoor practice sessions. I was skeptical if the mevo would be easy to use and accurate. Very happily surprised on both counts, just enter a couple of variables and turn it on and go. Readings were within 1% accurate of actual measurements. Highly recommend for a practice aid. I bought the Mevo for myself, hoping to use it at the driving range. In practice, its not quite as easy to set up/pull data from as I had hoped. My phone kept shutting off during my practice round, requiring me to reconfigure the connection before it would start saving data again. When it was connected, it only registered every third or fourth shot. Overall, not a great purchase - I ended up returning it. The fact that I can create a baseline and then adjust and evolve makes this tool indispensable. Theres no other way for me to understand if the changes Im making translate to bettering my game. First, it was easy to set up with the app on my iPad. Just install the app, connect it with the wizard to the units bluetooth and thats it. I thought the iPads bigger screen was better than the phone to review the videos. The video capture is a great tool to check your swing. I immediately saw a flaw in my swing and Im working on correcting it. Just like the feedback from a coach. The ball flight, if indoors, must be at least 7 feet and the unit must be 8 feet behind the tee and lined up with the tee. I found that you dont need the tee if not using the driver. Indoors is mainly a tool for your swing and ball speed and distance since you cant tell if you sliced or hooked. I have also used it outdoors at a range and the distance seems to be accurate. You dont need to use the sticker unless you want to know the ball spin. With the ball velocity and launch angle it calculates the distance. Pure physics.

Havent used this as yet got it for the use to capture memories, very surprised at the size but very nice and handy to carry especially when you are out not like the old bulky ones. Arrived quickly too. Good quality like a GoPro, its also cheaper. But only problem is the battery life, is too short; lasting about 2-3 hours. Sometimes the camera runs out of battery and I wouldnt know while cycling.It includes all extra parts whether if you are driving, cycling, walking, or driving a motorbike, these extra parts are very stable and high quality, better than buying a GoPro which you have to purchase the extra parts.

I was expecting a cheap quality headset, but they are amazing. I did some testing to see if the headphones battery lasted as long as its advertised, and Im happy to say the battery life is as advertised. I also appreciated how different sizes for each part were included in the box, after playing around with each of the parts I was able to find a perfect fit for my ear otherwise going into buying this I wasnt sure because usually earbuds dont fit right. Absolutely love it.

I love the paper texture. Its perfect for my color pencil art, writing, and sketching. I also love the fact that the paper is perforated so I can easily tear out my art and post it in a small frame. I need to buy more. Dont be fooled by the low price. These are fantastic quality paper, in thick books sized to carry in a purse or backpack easily. We are using them for pencil, chalk pastel, marker, even watercolor. The abundance of pages, affordable price and smaller size paper makes it less intimidating somehow to just pull out a pad and draw something. We are getting a lot of mileage out of these sketchbooks. Love these, they have lasted me over a year now and theyre perfect to carry around on the go in my relatively small bag. The paper quality is decent enough. My only complaint isnt really the manufacturers fault, but I feel the loops are too big. Because of this it can get a bit hard to turn pages and they block a decent amount of space on the page. we sketchbooks are awesome, they hold up with other arteza products and copic marker, I havebted use paint on them but Im positive theyd hold up with water color too.Their nice and thick, and I couldnt believe I could 3 sketchbooks with 100 pages. Yes the sketchbooks are a little small, but not to where its troublesome. Their great for character designing or doing small land scaping. I highly recommend, Im very satisfied. Will order again if I use them all up. I cant imagine not having these sketchbooks in my backpack. Theyre super excellent. The quality is great for the price and the size is a perfect portable size. Im glad I bought the 3-pack. Definitely a great purchase for casual sketching and rough drafts. I thought the sketching paper would have been thicker than it actually was, however, that doesnt remove the nice texture of the paper and the usefulness of it. I was a little annoyed seeing the pencil work I did BUT it was simply used as a sketchbook due to this and functions as a sketchbook should otherwise. I really like this brands Items and do think that the sketchbooks are worth the price. They were a little smaller than I thought they were supposed to be but it didnt hinder the sketching I did so I do think this will be good especially for beginner artists or children who are interested in art. I like it how the item arrived in great shape and shipping was amazing. Good sketchpads to start with if you enjoy drawing. Sketchpads are also have a good size to where they are portable to bring and use where ever you go. Slowly filling these with artwork and worldbuilding for a sci fi series! These are awesome and Ill definitely be buying more.


HeimVision Sunrise Alarm Clock, Smart Wake up Light Sleep Aid Digital Alarm Clock with Sunset Simulation and FM Radio, 4 Alarms /7 Alarm Sounds/Snooze/20 Brightness

See Price


Description

Notes from the Community

Well worth buyingI bought this heimvision sunrise alarm clock to help with the darker mornings, so primarily to use for the light function rather than sound function of the alarm. Im so impressed, after only using it a week, the difference it makes in how easy it is to get up in the morning, with just the light simulation, is amazing! I wake up less tired and more ready to get on with my day. I dont use the sound alarm so I just set the volume to 0 so I dont get woken up by that.Its really easy to function and set the alarm times, clock, sound and volume settings. I love that you can use it as a lamp as well and looks good on my bedside table.This was a refreshing startThe sunrise feature is pretty cool, especially if you live further up north as we do. We set our alarm for 7 AM and by 6:30 the clock begins to lighten up the room from totally dark. By the time the alarm goes off, the room is well lit. What we noticed is that this prevents the jarring or startling form of waking up. It does make a difference.There are different alarm sounds and volume options. It also has multiple colors and brightness options. There is also a bedside light feature that can be turned on with a click.Overall, I found this to be worth the money and would recommend buying it. I dont see myself spending nearly a $130 for Philips, that seems a stretch.Im yet to use the sunset/turn down feature as we use it as a bedside light since our baby sleeps with us. There is also an option to use the radio as your wake up alarm but I am yet to try that. Maybe on Sundays! This alarm clock has many features!! I would definitely recommend this for ALL ages! It allows you to use as a clock, as a going to sleep light, and even as a desk lamp light.This is by far the best alarm clock that I have ever purchased. It has so many functions and the APP makes it so easy to use. You can download the APP from App Store to your smartphone or tablet. And then you can control everything from the APP and adjust the settings to how you want them. This is really more convenient than any other traditional wake up light. The natural wakeup light is really helpful during the winter months and make waking up much more pleasant experience. I am now able to set 4 alarms with different sound effects. The phase can be changed to light up in different colors. The app is really easy to use and setting it up with Amazon Alexa was super easy. (It can also connect with Google Home, but I have not tried it) I can control this anywhere so long as I have an internet connection. With my old alarm clock, it had small fiddly buttons that you had to keep pressing and holding to change settings etc however with this new alarm clock everything is much easier.I am not a morning person (at all), and my bedroom is completely dark since I have blackout curtains, and waking up to a gradually brighter room helps me wake up without feeling groggy. So I was excited to try this alarm clock. It works as promised, with a warm, yellowish, gradual glow waking you up in the morning over 10-30 minutes. In the morning the gradual lighting of the room is really nice and does help you wake up slightly easier, maybe even happier. I especially like the snooze feature where you can tap it to get extra 9-15 minutes of sleep.It also works nicely as a desk light and the ability to throw different colors on the walls is nice. You can set max brightness and volume pretty simply. The button layout is good and the manual actually explains how to use the features pretty well. This little lamp is really quite something. I used to have a Philips wake-up lamp, but this one is better in pretty much all aspects.First of all, the lamp works with Alexa. Being able to say Alexa, turn on bedroom lamp is pretty helpful. Furthermore, and this is something that I definitely didnt expect, all the different parts of the lamp are exposed as different devices. The lamp, the radio, the sleep sound portion, and all four different alarms. So, I can say Alexa, turn on alarm 4 or Alexa, turn off radio.Because of WiFi, the lamp is really easy to use. It can take the networks time, so you dont have to fiddle around with that either. All of the things can be set up using the SmartLife app, which I already had for a number of other (MartinJerry) light switches.The alarms — well, there are four of them, and they can be set up for different weekdays. For example, my alarm 1 is a 6 AM weekday alarm. but it doesnt go off on weekends. I dont have to remember to turn the alarm on again after Ive turned it off, like with my last Philips alarm clock (that was dangerous — if I turned the alarm off on Monday morning and didnt turn it on again on Monday night, I wouldnt be woken up on Tuesday morning — not with this lamp). The lamp also has a backup battery for the alarms.The sleep function is somewhat limited in sounds. I think I like the river sound, my wife likes rain. Unfortunately, the rain has two little beeps in it that to me sound like someone is remotely locking or unlocking a car. Otherwise the sound is nice, I didnt expect it.It would be nice if I could more easily turn everything off using Alexa, for example, both the radio and the lamp. I created a group, but it doesnt really make sense, because I hardly ever want to turn everything on at the same time, just off.Overall, Im super pleased with this lamp. Way better than expected, more features than lamps three or four times the price.

Notes from the Community

Incredible value for the money.Great quality videos, acceptable photos, fully waterproof, good menu, plenty of accessories. Amazon compressed the video. It looks awesome on my computer Why did I choose the Akaso Brave?1. Akaso has a better website (and hopefully support/warranty) compared other action cams I see on Amazon.2. Olympus Tough TG-5 (amazing camera) was outside my budget.3. GoPro Hero was way outside my budget.4. Most waterproof cameras under $400 are mixed with bad reviews indicating leakage.This camera is with me & the wife right now in Hawaii celebrating our ten year anniversary!It has done a great job across several hours of salt water snorkeling, exploring beautiful pools, and adventuring in bamboo forests.The wireless was relatively straightforward so I could transfer the photos and videos to my iPhone easily. Heres some extra stuff I bought:1. Flow by microJib … floating, extendable handle. Worth every penny. Best one I could find.https://www.amazon.com/Flow-MicroJib-Waterproof-Extendable-Floating/dp/B01MXHWWUA2. Shoot waterproof diving light (works great; I have not submerged more than 5 feet underwater)3. Samsung EVO 32GB microSD4. Tekcam waterproof case (an extra, just in case, have not yet tested)5. Extra batteries (two original batteries have each given me about 40 minutes of good use so far, so I have not tested new batteries)When I need it handy, I store the Flow handle, my flash, and action cam (all connected ready to go) inside of two big socks. What dont I like about this camera?1. No lens protector :( so be careful to store your plastic waterproof case in a sock!2. No ability to buy extra cases from the manufacturer (had to by 3rd party).3. Included Remote control is not waterproof/submersible; there is no way to buy replacements from manufacturer.4. Not quite the same quality as GoPro or Olympus TG-5 (but close for most people, and costs much less).5. Photos: not nearly the same quality as iPhone or Samsung Android, but still acceptable.6. Less support, no user manual, etc.Here are some tips (for most people):1. See my attached photo for how to insert microSD.2. The screen will shut off to save battery. Tap the down button to turn it back on. (when snorkeling, for example)3. When in video recording mode, tap the down arrow to turn microphone on or off.4. In the menu, 1080 30 fps is a great high-quality video choice.5. In the menu, 5M or 8M will be decent for images/photos, for most people. (Larger values increase the storage size & print size).6. In the menu, turn OFF the loop recording, date stamp, motion detection, and beep sound. (for most people)7. In the menu, set Auto Off to 10 minutes (for snorkeling/ adventuring).8. In the menu, set Quality to fine.9. In the menu, play around with Angle. Wider angles can be more fisheye for objects on the edge, but wide is great for snorkeling.10. Yes you CAN delete photos/videos from the preview mode on screen. Hold the up arrow and push the enter button on top; you will be prompted what to delete.Overall I am super super pleased.Incredible value, easy to use.Great videos and acceptable photos. Lots of features and accessories.This review is sincere. If the action cam disappoints in the future, Ill update my review. Ive been wanting a GoPro for awhile now for bike and quad riding but couldnt spent the money they want for them. So I looked into action cams. Found this one for a great price and although it didnt have a lot of reviews the ones it did have were good. So I pulled the trigger and purchased it. Im really glad I did too. It literally comes with everything you would ever need. All the mounts and cases. A remote for your wrist waterproof case. The only thing you need to buy is a class 10 micro SD card. I has tons of features and real easy too use. The video quality is amazing at 4K and the pictures look great to. Some of the features is time lapse and motion sensing. This action camera has it all. Also has WiFi to connect to your cell phone via an app available through the App Store or play store. Comes with two batteries so you will always have power. Cant say how happy I am with this. I purchased this camera so that I can use a suction cup mount for my car when I do road racing and drag racing. I have tried several different modes with this camera and they all work great. There is a nice anti shake camera built into the camera which works very well. When there is enough light set up, the picture on this camera is crystal clear as well as the videos. The cameras menu is very basic and very easy to get to even with the case that comes with the camera. There is both a clear protection case that is not waterproof and then an extra back plate that allows you to take the camera on trips where you plan on being wet.I have not yet had a chance to use the full waterproof case but it does seem well built and other reviewers have stated that it does in fact work underwater. I will be trying the waterproof case when my dads pool is opened up. I did some testing by using one of the mounts to strap the camera onto my Archery bow. I strapped it onto the end of the stabilizer. Unfortunately, the batteries die very quickly on the camera. I had the camera in stand by mode and even after a short amount of time you have to change batteries.Overall, in good light, the camera takes excellent video and excellent 20MP photos. There are two batteries with the camera but in the heat of the moment it can be difficult to get the camera out of the case and swap the battery out. The camera is very lightweight so you cant even tell you have it and it doesnt need the hard cases to function. The camera does not pick up low light very well at all. The camera is really cool. It has a lot of accessories that I still need to understand how to use. It is packed neatly. It has 2 batteries, but no SD card. It looks like it is easy to use it, but I cant tell till I actually insert the card that I am about to order. It doesnt come with instruction, youd need to scan the QR-code and download it in the language you need. Great purchase! Ordered this days before a trip after hours of comparing various cameras, but so happy I got this one. Perfect pictures on the beach so far. Would have been five stars but in the couple of days I have been using it, I havent been able to get the wifi connectivity to my phone to work. None of the apps seem to be real or working. Love the ability to change the angle settings, the timer with 2s 5s or 10s, burst shot while filming, motion activated feature and time lapse. Will be using it this weekend while we go snorkeling and will provide an update on how those video and photos come out.


FOXWELL NT301 OBD2 Scanner Professional Enhanced OBDII Diagnostic Code Reader Tool

Notes from the Community

Be warned this is not your typical code reader. This one gets into the the technical stuff. A lot I have no idea what I was looking at. I learned to use a few of the functions from uTube videos. I learned enough to find out I had a plugged EGR valve and I have to 02 sensors that are bad. I have the shop manuals for my car and the more I study this instrument the more I like it. The best feature I think is the graphing. Watching the operation of the 02 sensors on the graph mode enabled me to locate the bad sensors in a couple of minutes. If you are willing to take the time and learn how to use this scanner, youll be glad you bought it. Im very pleased with my purchase. However when you order this, order a case and the extention ribbon. You will want to protect this little jewel. The extention ribbon allows you to hook up to your automobile computer and be able to sit comfortably in the drivers seat while you are doing the test instead of being hunched under the steering wheel. Great scanner, great price! I have never owned a code reader and bought this Foxwell NT301 because I got sick and tired of throwing codes and relying on a dealership or mechanic to tell me what was wrong. Im pretty handy and an former aircraft mechanic, so I know my way around tools. This was the piece I needed most. This unit does what it says and seems to do it quite well. This is the perfect unit for the handy weekend mechanic who does his own work like me. MY STORY:I own a 2013 Ford Fusion Titanium that was having some difficulties 2 YEARS AGO with sputtering after start and then sometimes stalling . The dealership and supposed ASE mechanic gave me a printout of the thrown codes, (4 or so) and a hefty quote for throttle body replacement, FRP sensors and spark plugs to the tune of $1300.00 !!Well, being a mechanic on aircraft and a Quality Engineer by trade, I wasnt having it. I berated the mechanic and cause a scene at the dealership and took the car home. On my own, I replaced the most logical item first and went for the spark plugs, for a total or $45 bucks and 40 minutes of my time, I SAVED myself the full $1300… The CEL went away and never illuminated again for nearly 2 years (50,000 miles).2 years past, and I started to get a hesitation, loss or power and poor performance and logically I assumed the cause of the CEL now was related to the other items I didnt replace 2 years ago, I replaced the FRP sensors and was skeptical of the Throttle body. After getting nowhere and still having the CEL on, I decided to buy this FOXWELL NT301. I plugged it in and was immediately surprised that none of the previous codes were present but the Car was throwing codes for a misfire.This unit allowed me to READ THE CODE and have the manufacturers reference without having to look it up online.It allowed me to clear the codes and then drive until the car CEL illuminated again. I used the record option to record the event at the moment the code was thrown, watch the LIVE DATA and then read all the codes present.Low and Behold, the cars was throwing codes for a Misfire and NOT the throttle body etc. I bought a new set of Spark plugs and replaced them first and yeah, the CEL went away, and I havent had problems since.The dealership originally wanted to bone me for $1300.00 and I smelled my way around that issue, and this time I was able to verify my problem with this code reader and ignore the erroneous data the dealership gave me in the past.Dont waste another dime anywhere. BUY THIS, read the manual, understand its full potential and USE IT.IT SAVED ME A FORTUNE. Any negative review here unfounded on me. THIS IS A GREAT UNIT. This analyzer totally performed to my expectations. Very simple and intuitive with minimal need for referencing the instruction book (which is pretty thorough).It accurately diagnosed the cause of my Check Engine Light (error code P0013). Went on YouTube to learn how the replace faulty VVT exhaust solenoid, and after a trip to Autozone for the new part, was able to replace it in about 20 minutes. Rechecked system and it was good to go. Loved that I was able to clear error code from cars ECM memory after the repair. Now I can pass the annual emissions test that is required to renew my next registration here in Texas.Chevy dealer wanted $125 just to connect to the OBD2… then would add parts/labor to that.Paid $65 for the scanner tool, $48 for the part and came out way ahead, plus I now have a scanner to use for any future CEL. This is the first ODB scanner I have owned. I bought it yesterday to check my daughters car. Her Check Engine light was on. And the car is very important for her livelihood - but she is also on a tight budget. Rather than running off to a garage I thought it would be good to know just what was happening. (Oh - and Ive wanted one of these for years. Not that that had anything to do with it ;) )Good reviews. Same day delivery. (Checked the reviews with my new friend reviewmeta! Thanks planet money podcast).This unit was easy to use. Found a misfire on cylinder 3. We pulled the spark plug. Tightened and cleaned the aging gap (and ordered new plugs!). Cleared the code. Checked again. And shes good to go until we can replace those plugs this weekend. Despite a few setbacks of our own making we were done in about an hour.And yes, if google is to be believed, if the misfire had gotten bad, her driving with the check engine light on MAY have ruined her engine. So this little purchase may have saved her car. Why bring your car into a garage for them to tell you whats wrong? Then worry if they are telling you a real problem, making up a larger one, or making one up period just to make money! Now you can tell if you really need to take it in. Ive used a few other fault code readers in the past. And they worked, but this one works great. It was very easy to navigate around the menus, and read the codes. Especially for someone like me… who is more useful doing home repairs than working on a car.I was able to find out what was wrong with my car, and yes I needed to bring it in. But I wasnt worried I was being ripped off. So I say to you! If you are sick of wondering, hoping and praying you dont get taken for a ride… Grab yourself a Foxwell fault code reader and know for sure your car needs a little TLC. OR! Are you someone who can work on your own car? Grab yourself a Foxwell, and you know what you need to get to fix your car. The shipping was quick, the product powered up on USB. Ask Scotty on youtube recommended Foxwell. So good enough for me.
