When you have a choice, buy American made.

You can't go wrong with the ScanGaugeii. http://www.scangauge.com/

Thank you all for the info...Already checked for exhaust leaks, didn't find any. I will need to check into the reflash, and this weekend I can try the simple battery diconnect, otherwise, it sounds like an O2 sensor.
Whichever way it is, seems pretty straightforward.

1977 CJ5 is a CJ build ever really done?

Sure, not much to it. I cut the trim around the window (2003-2006 have it IIRC) and mounted the unit through the hole. The cord was easy to run under the trim and through the dash to the port. I wasn't to worried about cutting up the trim because I had to hack the corners up to fit the cage.

I have a Garmin 3760 Nuvi GPS. For $99 I bought their eco adapter and it reads the engine codes and provides a report on the gps. Works with any OBDII autos. On my 04 TJ it showed I had fuel issues twice. Once was a sensor in the tank, the other was the gas cap needed to be replaced.

Did you have to get an extension for the cord? My scanguage is at home and I don't recall how long the cord is.

Nope, it fit nicely. There is slack In the line, so it's not maxed out.

I've owned an Auto-Xray unit and it was good. Full operational monitoring (like it'll tell you your timing position, coolant temp, TPS position to the degree, etc).

Because of this thread I bought the OBDII bluetooth adapater and the Torque app. It makes a fun toy to play with. I've enjoyed testing the 0-60 times in my other car. In the Jeep I will continue to use the wired Ultaguage for day to day use. Too much hassle to setup the phone every time when using Torque.

The Torque App has profiles that you can save for different cars...

and it automatically jumps from vehicle to vehicle depending on where the obd2 BT adapter is plugged in.

check out the mini adapters. mine was $60 a year ago, now there are several for less than $20. I got the mini so i could leave it plugged in all the time without fear of kicking it getting in or out
