Default Is a OBD2 suitable Saturn scan tool?

Will an OBD2 be capable of retracting the pintal on an IAC valve?, or do I look elsewhere for a suitable Saturn scan tool? Robert

Probably not. If the car in question is one of the '94s listed in your profile, then definitely not, as neither one is OBD-II.

Have you got the new part yet? I'd be surprised (and a bit dismayed) if it isn't already retracted.

You need bi-directional controls on an OBDI scanner. Shouldn't cost you more than about $3,000 for the tool. You might get a used one for around a grand. What's the deal with the pintel? What problem are you addressing by retracting it?

If I may add, I've never had to make any adjustments when I've replaced my IAC units.

Review recent additional input on the IAC's issue placed >Here<.
