Actually the Consult can be very useful in determining many intermitent problems, but I am not sure in your case scafidipro with the stall when turning left it will find the problem.
Also Lew, the Consult or Consult II can be useful for some mechanical issues especially those pertaining to driveability. Have you used a Consult or Consult II before?, because it sounds as though you are not aware of the true versatility of these monitors.
The Consult II is an aboslute necessity with the 02 and up Nissans and Infinitis because of the BCM (Body Control Module), various LCUs (Local Control Modules), IVMS (LAN) and more advanced CAN, as well as the Smart Entrance Control functions that can be monitored. Yet with all the advanced functionality, these service monitors retain compatibilty all the way back to the 90 U12 Stanza. In conjuction with the ASIST program, this allows for a technician to be more efficient in diagnosis and productivity. Does scafidipro need an older Consult to diagnose his car?, probably not but it might be able to help because the signals and codes which be only temporary could more easily be read. Would even a used Consult be cost effective?, definitely not.
Thus the reason I suggested an N probe instead.
