Got my reader, scanned my van too. Google helped find the manufacture specific codes, and some simple steps to fix it.

comment What to know before buying and OBD-II reader
The last paragraph is just what is going on with my car, in case someone is curious. Since OBDII is a industry standard it is most likely irrelevant.

comment What to know before buying and OBD-II reader
It would have been good to get it read at the store, but it won't start right now. Picked up an a scanner and it told me cylinder 3 misfire. Now I know what to fix. Cheapest scanner I could find had all the codes in the manual, plus a CD with updatable software.

comment What are good features to look for in an ODB-II reader
I was looking at ODB2 readers too, and some had really abysmal reviews, but I don't know if that was just incorrect exceptions. For example some were saying to took too long to return the code.
