    Can you check the lambda (oxygen) sensor operation with your kit?

    cant test seperate equipment only reads the fault code stored in the ECU and allows a simple erase/reset to be carried out. Dont mind this as kit only cost £25 and cheaper than stealers to look at also can use on any make of car so handy for hobbles £10 diagnose/reset charge
