About OBDStation

At OBDstation, we strive to make diagnosing and repairing automotive issues more convenient, affordable, and stress-free. We know how worrisome car troubles can be, and seek to arm our readers with the knowledge they need to make well-informed decisions when something goes wrong. 

Our core focus is around diagnostic scan tools – what they are, how to choose the right one, their various use cases, and what specific codes mean. We also cover topic areas like automotive troubleshooting, DIY maintenance, and basic vehicle mechanics.

Backed by decades of automotive experience, our mission is to deliver unbiased, detailed reviews, recommendations, and information to help improve your knowledge of auto mechanics. We take pride in our work and are thrilled to have this platform to share our expertise. 


Above all else, this site is for our readers. In every decision we make and every article we publish, we put your interests first.

Our Writers

Dan McClave

As the owner of OBD Station, I am committed to providing quality content and information from myself and our team of experienced authors.

I have spent my career in the automotive parts industry for the largest privately held companies in the world. My experience has mostly been in product development as VP of Engineering and Product Development. Other areas of expertise are supply chain, customer/tech services, lean manufacturing, supply chain and operations management. OBD Station is our newest venture as I sensed there was a need in the market for honest, insightful product reviews and guidance in the specific area of engine diagnostic tools.

Our team of authors research and work diligently to provide the best information possible for you, the consumer, to make an informed decision on the product that is best for your specific application.
