Arrow Scan Tool Anyone?

Does anyone have a scan tool, and possibly do a scan for me to see the faults. I get the check engine light on occasionaly, and looking at the symptoms seems like either the MAF or cam sensor is shot.

If someones got a good heart to do this for free, they will get a free hand shake and a coffee.


P.S i have done the scan on Carfax i believe in may, and the problem went away after that. For the past month or so its been back.

Hey bullet, I am sure its not personal....not everyone has a scanner...ie..like me ....

Definitely something I need to invest in....back in my old school audi days there was a trick in pulling codes via a fuse and counting the number of light flashes on the dash....I don't believe you can pull codes without the tool on these cars....
