If anybody has one of the legit scanners, not just an OBDII, I'd love to meet you wherever is convenient for you and pull up the code so I can begin troubleshooting!
Sorry bud were mostly up in the LA county

They typically tend to be. I'm down for drive if people would like to go.

Tons of places. Make sure you go to a knowledgable shop though. If you can DIY then that would be ideal....it's very easy to do.

If not, I recommend Auto Werkstatt in Manhattan Beach. Do not go to a "big box store" like Pep Boys or Jiffy Lube.

Thanks for the update bro. As you know, I'm most likely going to work on/upgrade my clutch sometime soon. It's great that you've found something you trust that I can look into.
