code reader for 95 psd

I just bought a 95 psd f-350 and I need to check for codes, I read somewhere that many of these have been reflashed and can use a obd2 code reader, if not what can i use?

I am considering having my chip reflashed with a performance file, should i get this done so i can use a later code reader?

i want to be able to do diagnostics and i have several other cables and programs for other vehicles, i just want to buy the better one now and not have to replace it when i do upgrades to the computers

So why you feel teh need to check the codes? Is the truck having problems? Instead of reflashing the computer w/ a performance file, have you thought about getting a chip w/ multiple settings?

As far as a code reader, I've never seen a "good" one that will read other vehicles as well.

yes i have thought about that but i also have to reflash the 95 ecu to be able to use obd2 port (according to Jody at DP Tuners) and then i can add a chip or have him program the ecu for performance or add a chip.

the problem with my truck is in the other post i have and it has gotten worse today. the oil pressure gauge started going nuts, and it always runs rough, used to be intermittent:shrug:

Not quite true. OBD2 compliant was for passenger cars by 1996. We have the obd2 port if it's under the dash. Some 94.5'/95 have under hood ports. Our PCM's can't be read by common OBD2 scanners like the free scan Autozone offers. The early PCM's are just a breed of their own.

Auto Enginuity readers will scan them. Super chips tuners with self tests also can scan them.
