Ryobi 18V One+ Power Inflator Title Image

Ryobi 18V One+ Power Inflator

Recently I tested the Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator to pump up the tires on my project cars, but found it too large to fit in the Cobalt SS/SC for extended road trips.

To remedy that issue, I picked up their handheld, trigger operated Power Inflator.

Check out this review to see how well the Ryobi 18V One+ Power Inflator performed on my most recent road trip into Glacier National Park.

OTC OBD I & II Scan Tool 3211 Title Image

OTC OBD I & II Scan Tool 3211

For years I avoided cars that require a scan tool for diagnostic work.

Once I was forced to buy them (I've owned three, so far), I avoided working on them.

Only recently have I run into a problem with the Cobalt SS/SC that I actually benefitted from having a scan tool, so I broke down and bought one.

After extensive research, the tool I chose to purchase was an OTC OBD I & II Scan Tool (P/N 3211). It straddles the line between cost and professional capabilities.

Follow along with this review to see how I was able to use it and how well it worked for me.
