Cesar’s Answer

Hey Carlos,
Depends on the shop you work for and the engine. I have been working with diesel engines for a while and unfortunately the industry has moved into this proprietary mentality. For example, Cummins, Deutz, Kubota, John Deere, etc all have their own "diagnostic" tools that usually cost in the thousands so the shop usually has one you can borrow but must return. Basic diesel scanners usually give you a generic code that lets you know what the issue is but sometimes that code cannot be erased unless you plug in their specific analyzer tool. For example we had a Kubota diesel engine that had electronic fuel injectors. 1 of those injectors went bad, we switched but was still not working properly. We had to take it to the dealer so they could program it properly. While generic scanners are still a good investment dont purchase one in the thousands of $ price range, find a decent one, unless you work straight for the manufacturer expect to see various of engine diagnostic tools too expensive to own.

That depends on the shop you work for. Some provide all the tools for liability reason while others let Tech bring their own.
