Hello,

A code reader can run anywhere from $20.00 to $150.00 depending on what functions you want them to provide. Although I have checked both of our reference guides thoroughly, I can't find anywhere where it tells me if your vehicle is OBD1 or OBD2. Every vehicle was mandatory made to use OBD2 Data Link Connectors (DLC) in 1996 and your vehicle is right at the OBD1/OBD2 cutoff. In the diagrams down below I have included instructions for how to read your vehicle's DTC's. If you inspect where the code reader plugs into the vehicle at the DLC, it will have 16 pins if it is OBD2. A good place to purchase a code reader is on Ebay or Amazon. Here is a link for you to go to that explains everything a little better.

Please get back to us with how everything turns out.

Thanks,
