Unhappy 96 E300 Problems after starter change.

Changed the starter on my '96 E300D yesterday and now am getting ETS warning, check engine light and hard shifting with all gears. I disconnected the battery for the repair and have not read the DTC's yet. Will do that when I get home.

Any ideas or helpful hints?

No codes

Checked codes and none present. I only have an OBDII reader. Do I need and OBDII/CAN reader?

If you read OBDII codes that's as far as you can go without buying something like a Carsoft or a Star clone. I don't remember ever hearing about an OBDII/CAN reader.

OBDII/CAN Reader

I looked around and found that Harbor Freight sells an OBDII/CAN reader for about $150.00. It has a PC interface and memory to store codes and is currently on sale for $109.00.
Here is a link: CAN & OBD II Professional Scan Tool

Have not had a chance to pickup or use son no review yet.
