Reading the fault codes WONT necessarily tell you what the problem is it will however tell you what systems are unhappy giving you a starting point.

People get confused about what a computer can do plugging it in gives you fault codes relating to the fault but many just read the code and replace whatever part the code refers to this rarely works.

For example low boost some would replace turbo when infact the reason for the low boost could be lack of vacuum to control the turbo or a burst boost hose/intercooler.

Find someone who fixes cars rather than someone who just fits new parts till its fixed :)
