You can buy scannner from autoparts shop, ebay, online, etc.
Repair manual, I prefer paper type, easier to read and use as reference in
garage. Buy factory service manual from Toyota. If you are patient, they
come up on ebay, but price is close to retail price from Ebay. jim

If you have an old laptop you can use it as a scanner. You have to buy
a box that converts the protocol from the car into a protocol that
your computer can understand (about $80). An obvious advantage of
using your PC is that you can produce neat graphs and you can archive
the readings for future comparisons.

Software is free. Here is one such system, there are many other.
