I recently had a cel light problem, and I assumed I had an obd 1 due to the lable under my hood stating it was, the egr valve and the fact that it is an 04/95 car, and i bought a chip for an obd 1 car and installed it and the car works fine. So im driving around looking for a place that can scan my car... needless to say nobody around here said they could. Come to find out my car has an obd 2 scan port, and further more an obd2 scanner pulled the codes. so now im confused mainly i want to know if i have forged internals and duel valve springs is there any easy way to check for that???

Re: i have on obd 1.5 (radcon05)

late 94 and all 95 cars have an obd 2 type scan port. some scanners should be able to read them, but they can't go in and mess with real-time monitering or engine block meaurements like an obd 2 can. you should have dual valve springs and forged internals, the change over was jan. 96 and many early 96 cars continued to get some combination of Obd 1 parts in the engines.
