  • obd 2 codes without a scan tool?

    i have a 2001 vw passat 1.8t and im getting the check engine emission workshop light that comes on once in awhile.i tried hooking the car to several different snap on scan tools using the keys it asked for and everything but they just cant communicate with it so my next option is take it to dealer.

    the other option i heard which id like to try is what brings me to my question,is there a way to get the code through the radio or some other onboard way of doing it? i heard there is a way and i know that alot of cars especially obd1 cars there was a way to by switching the key on and off so many times....how can i get the code like that?

  • bios detects storage sata hard drive but device manager doesnt?

    ive looked up dozens of forums and everyone says its there but it isn't so remember that in ur answer please.

    so the problem is that 1 of the 2 identical 400 gb hard drives i was using already as storage(not new ones) will not read anywhere on computer except in bios.the problem started when i bout another drive to add to my primary drive and make a raid out of the 2.the raid works fine and ive reloaded my windows seven,but now only 1 of the 2 storage drives shows up and un fortunately the one that doesn't show up has all of my stuff on it.

    i tried switching the sata cables on the 2 storage drives but its still the same drive that does not read so its not the cables.the drive that doesn't read does spin though,i could feel and hear it.

    when looking in device manager like i said,only the one storage drive shows up as well as the raided ones but not the second storage drive.

    is my drive bad?is there anything i can do?its already formatted like i said and i changed nothing on the 2 storage drives.

  • why does my carburetor keep flooding my motor?

    i have a 56 buick and my motor keeps flooding .the floats havebeen triple checked on measurement and are fine.the jets are the proper size.the fuel pressure is right at 4 pounds when running which is normal.the carb has been completely rebuilt and new everything.b4 it floods the plugs,it starts right up and will run until the engine barely starts to warm up and it will stall.then of course i cant start it due to wet plugs.ive tried leaning it out when it is runnning but it makes no difference.i cant time it without it being warmed up either but it is within range since i static timed it.what gives?

  • why is it that the internet is so liberal biased when the majority arent liberal?

    and why ist it they cant teach religion in schools but they can indoctrinate with leftist unproven garbage like humans causing global warming or climate change or whatever they'll name it next?i used to believe in that garbage til i grew up and grew a brain and decided to challenge alot of it.i cant believe the stuff i believed.here's a thought,why doesn't the school teach both sides of an argument and let you decide...i mean if you don't do that,you are indoctrinating and it seems that has become the american way.

  • would you prefer a solid state drive or the standard hard drive?

    im really trying to figure for myself and i know that the solid state is faster but im kinda worried about the slower writing times and the deterioration do to writing a bunch of times.i have a home built pc,and im looking for the over all here. i know the space on them isn't much but im using a standard hard drive for the second drive,i just want to know whats best for the boot drive and if the solid drives are reliable and fast enough and if its better even with the negatives.

  • solid state hard drives, even though the write time is slower?

    than the read time, isn't it still faster than a standard hard drive?even when it degrades from over writing it so often,does it last longer still? and when the performance is slowing down in it,is it still faster?

    im sorry that this is all random questioning but im trying to weigh if it is the right hard drive for me or not and if not,should i wait for the technology on them to improve it will.i am aware of the price of them and if it is better all around(aside from storage capacity which i have a second drive for)for me,i would get it.
