    Could you put an OBDII system in a 1994 Explorer?

    Sorry for posting it in the wrong place. I am not planning on doing it. I just saw the ad on ebay and it made it sound like it was a plug and play thing. you plug it in and it will work. I was just curious. Thanks for your responses

    Service Plans?

    I had us fidelis on a 2002 envoy. and it was a waste of money. because my probs was electrical in nature. they said they would not cover it. but it was supposed to cover bumper to bumper. maybe if something engine and tranny wise went they would fix it but nothing else.
