When the "check engine" light came on in my truck again, it turned out to be the throttle position sensor just like when I very first bought the truck about a year-and-a-half ago. That time, I was able to fix it by spraying contact cleaner on it, but this time that didn't work. I ordered a new part. In this episode I talk while I replace the part and I also talk about the nifty diagnostic tool that I used to get the trouble code and how it sends the information to your smartphone.
What you can gather with the torque diagnostic tool for Android:
View live OBD engine data on your Android phone - Connect to your vehicle ECU
Fully customisable dashboard screens - Design your own layouts and custom dials, use your own themes
Retrieve Fault Codes (DTCs) and clear Check Engine lights - View fault descriptions using the built-in databases
Upload live OBD2 data to your webserver or the torque web viewer in realtime
Check the performance of your vehicle with BHP / Torque / 0-60 & Quarter Mile widgets

When is the new truck?
Eventually, Jon, will do an episode where he replaces the very last piece of the old truck. :P

This truck is worth it's weight in shows.

Just getting started
Don't worry y'all, I expect this truck will give me episode topics regularly for a good while. I'm gonna guess starter motor or ignition coil within the next year. Spark plugs, at least...
