    Diagnostics, Troubleshooting and Repair--Opportunity or Obstacle?

    Back in the year of George Orwell i bought a brand new car and proceeded to take it apart and investigate the engine control unit. Based upon that study i discovered a design 'feature' that was prone to failure and repaired hundreds of these units for a nominal fee and even provided free...
