Much better to read them and deal with them when maybe it's still a minor problem. Reading the code on the throttle body might mean you get it cleaned and no more problems. Waiting until it fails means getting it rebuilt, or getting a working one. Much more expensive.

There is no way I would own an ODB-II car without an ODB-II reader. A good reader cost me $200 Canadian (hundred Euro maybe) when I bought my NG900 and it's been working fine ever since when I need it.

Now, on the 9-5, a Tech II is really useful. I currently have one sitting in the back seat.
certainly the problem doesn't go away, but I can pursue my trip and yes the problem of stalling goes away in my case and given me the chance to reach home. after spending 500 euros for nothing at the first Saab garage in France.
and I remembered to you the first subject of the post how to shut off the engine light not less not more.
and I'm very happy you have a tech II, but I'm not wealthy seems like you are, even for a reader at 100 euros, I have just reconstructed my car, spending 4000 euros for that, it's enough for me, plus a new sludge problem happened these days.
To All Sorry if my english isn't so good, Try to do my best to learn every day.

Suggest you buy a 3 euro OBD2 bluetooth dongle then you can both read and clear your codes.

This will also help you to save a lot of money on possible future repairs considering the amount of money you have paid out.
