“I have a clone which I’ve had since I bought my van….. is still working perfectly, (touch wood)…have used it many, many times, this is the one I bought:
With some help from Loot to get me up and running with the correct installation procedure and files etc…, (thanks mate!!). I’ve done plenty of module programing, speed limit changes, custom changes like central locking sequences, DTC fault finding and key coding etc….not just on my van but a few mate’s vans as well… would have cost me and them an arm, leg, first born and left testicle to get these things done by my local Ford dealer. Well worth getting IMHO. Has already paid for itself many times.
I’ve even done a few pump, pilot & injector learns when I feel my van isn’t running at it’s best, just to make sure all is good…I wouldn’t be doing that if I had to take it to Ford each time…and my van would be suffering for it. As things like injectors and pump internals wear, they need little adjustments here and there…this is where the VCM2 pays for itself.
If a fault light pops up on my dash…I plug it in and it tells me exactly what has caused the fault instead of me wandering aimlessly and throwing cash at Ford and parts at my van for no good reason…. and allows me to fix it without having to bend over and pull my pants down at the dealer. I’ve only had minor problems like EGR and turbo underboost issues….a new EGR and intercooler hose and all my issues have now gone away.
Has been fault free ever since and is running as good as new with great fuel economy, (~33-34mpg), considering how big and heavy it is…
I consider the VCM-2 to be an essential part of my shed’s tool kit, and I dare say should be for most Transit owners.”
And because of the great service at obdtool, knobby1 sent back some operation pics as rewards, also.
