Default ford rotunda 007-00500 series

a buddy of mine has a friend that he works with and says he has some type of scanner called ford rotunda 007-00500 series. he says he has the adapter piece so it can run obd 1 codes and similar test like fuel mixture. he said you can't tweek anything like a tuner but i should be able to get valuble info on why my car is running like crap. can anyone verify this scanner thing will do anything for me. i just searched it and didn't find any real results that i'm looking for. i just want to know what it does and what its capable of checking before i waste my time driving up there to get it thanks.

i dont know the numbers etc off hand but if it's a big machine it's called the WDS, and if it's a small hand held it's called the NGS. our new one is called the IDS. the wds and ngs are capable of reading our codes and doing powerbalance tests like you said. granted they are getting harder to find even at the dealership....

UNLESS it can give you access to DATA PIDS...it won't be of much use and I believe obd 1 ford vehicles don't have such a option other than KOER/KOEO AND cylinder power balance testing, all of which you can perform with a paper clip DIY KOER JOEL5.0 has a good write up on how to do it

DATA pids INPUTS RELAYED TO THE ECM and displayed on the monitor.....for example ECT.......190 F
MASS AIR........5.14 GM/S
O/2.................544 mlv
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ the above are just a few of the many data pids that can be viewed in real time or what value the sensor is actually reading at that moment in time

PID's are in a list on OBD2 cars you can see the ammount of fuel desired, injector timing, pulse width, you can see just about anything on them. OBD1 doesnt support that. me personally i'd rather have the scan tool rather than a paperclip... maybe it's just cause i'm spoiled at the dealership and used to having them around :P

^^^^^^^^I 'd rather have a scan tool too..agreed......as I do.......but for the average harry homeowner working on their mustang I'd just do the DIY KOER METHOOD....cause in the end to read any inputs on an obd 1 car your most valuable tool will be a multimeter
