Question about Toyota Corolla
Hello Every one !!! I want to be a modern mechanic. I want to use the different scan tools , code readers, and other informative tools to be successful. I am well familiar with computers, internet, Programming languages, web designing etc. But I do not have any Idea of how to start working with the modern technology equipments to be a successful modern mechanic. And as I am from South Asia so we have mostly Toyota cars, land cruisers, grand , sygniss, etc. Please tell me that where should I start? what equipments should I buy? which equipments can best read the OBD II (and other) codes? and which can explain them well? which websites are best on providing information about these codes and related problems?
Scanners are just the better equivalent of code readers, but having live stream data functions so you can see real time sensor information displayed. There are a lot of good quality scanners, whatever your budget can afford. In the U.S., $200-$250, maybe a bit more or less, will buy a useful scanner.
You will definitely need a Digital Volt Ohm Meter (DVOM) for all manner of electrical testing. Get a good quality one with low impedance properties, so the meter doesn't throw off your test figures. When you buy one and read the manual with it, you will understand what I mean. Not sure I can explain it properly. Get the meter and learn its functions and how to use it.
There must be hundreds of websites that explain trouble codes. Just use a search engine-google that.

This GM's definition of this code:
P1404 - Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Closed Position Performance
The most common reasons are either the EGR valve position sensor is defective, or the EGR valve is not fully closed due to carbon.

"EML" is an acronym for "Elektronische
Motorleistungsregelung". Loosely translated from the original German for the BMW
owner means Electrionic Engine Power
"EML" is BMW's system name for electronic throttle management. The "EML" system, in it's most basic sense consists of an accelerator pedal (with an electronic position sensor), a computer module (usu. integrated with the main engine computer), and an EDK (Elektronische Drosselklappe or Electronic throttle valve). The EDK is also known as a "drive by wire" throttle. "EDK" throttles use a computer controlled stepper motor rather than a purely mechanical linkage (usu. metal cable attached directly to the accelerator pedal) to control the opening and closing of the throttle plate.
"Drive by wire" throttles are very common
on modern vehicles starting in the late nineties up through the present day.
"Drive by wire" technology enables very precise throttle control to improve
drivability and vehicle emissions, as well as many convenience features like
electronic cruise control, traction control & stability control.
BMW first implemented "drive by wire" in very limited quantities on the most expensive & sophistocated BMW models starting in 1988.
The latest generation of advanced vehicle
features to take advandage of "drive by wire" technology are radar guided cruise
control, accident avoidance control, autonomous-driving, and autonomous-parking

Castrol have developed EDGE 5W-30 in co-operation with the VW Group. This oil sets new standards in the industry in regards to cleanliness of the engine, thereby reducing harmful emissions and subsequent damage to the environment.
The technology in this oil also reduces long term blocking thereby prolonging the life of the diesel particulate filter.
Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is equally suitable for gasoline and diesel vehicles where performance specifications VW 504 00 and 507 00 are demanded.
In addition to its cleaning properties, EDGE 5W-30 antiwear technology provides strong protection for modern FSI, TDI and turbocharged engines.
EDGE 5W-30 is also approved for use in modern BMW and Mercedes gasoline and diesel engines including those equipped with a DPF that require BMW Longlife -04 or MB-Approval 229.51.
