year vehicle manufactured? if 1996 & later, OBDII scanner to be plugged into a port (typically, should be near the steering column, under the dash).
older models may have OBDI (no standard location of port) scanner specific to the make of the vehicle. search the web, on how to read manually (or without scanner) the code by counting the number of blinks of the MIL (malfunction Indicator light) (aka check engine, or service engine soon).
Not all OBD-2 scanners are created equal. Most only read power-train (engine/transmission) codes and are not capable of reading ABS codes. Some scanners even have a specific button you have to press to get ABS codes. Try a different scanner. I know places like Auto Zone will scan codes for free but not every store has the same reader. The AZ nearest to me has the ABS capable scanner while the one on the other side of town can't read ABS codes.
If you don't have a code scanner, you can take it to most auto parts stores and have them read. Since you have a post 1996 vehicle you have a OBD2 system and can use about any OBD2 compliant error code scanners. The socket is located to the right of the steering wheel, under the dash lip.
You can reset the check engine light with the code scanner when you read the codes.
1st : Go to your local GM Dealer, they will read the Code to know what's the defective or broken part on your vehicle !
2nd : Go to a Local Garage who do maintenance on vehicle they will do the same as the dealer !
3rd : Go to a local store that sell's automotive product and part's you could buy your own Obd2 Scanner, would cost depending between 70-150 $ but you don't need to buy the most expensive one ! To read the Check Engine Code, will tell the P0... code !
aftermarket code readers will not read abs codes... only the ford scan tool will read the code. youve most likely got a broken tone ring on one of the axleshafts...quickest fix would be to replace the axleshaft, but you can buy the ring seperate and install it if you have the proper tools to do so...hope this helps and good luck
The fuel line is connected to fuel injector Rail by 2 nuts (10mm) (from your right) next to air hose to air filter. Disconnect fuel line and start engine to see whether gas shoots out of the line. If not, fuel pump is broken. Engine turns over but not start , it could be iginition lost (no sparks ). or timing belt got rip broken.
Go to auto Zones (auto part store) borrown ODB II scanner loaner and take it home, hook to ODBII connector that's located at the driver side to your right. Read the codes given by the scanner and go from there.
If a timing belt is broken, open timing belt cover to check on the belt.
If your belt is broken and crushed apiece, you may have to rebuild the whole engine as it's an interference belt.
