i tried using a volt meter to read the codes, but they just appeared to fast, anyway she's booked in on tuesday and i gotta find out whats wrong cause she sounds and runs horrible, i guess ford can charge what ever they want cause they know my dealership scan tool can't read the codes properly, lol

$95 is about right for that. to do it properly it'll take about 30mins, by the time they read the plethera of codes it will have stored, then clear them, drive the car and recheck the for code again to see wich ones are genuine problems. that and do you honestly think they'll buy a scan tool and not charge to use it?
