Default Check engine question

Hi pals, im sure this is a re-post, but honestly, using the search engine I couldn´t find anything...

I have a couple of troubles...

Next week Im gonna change the Camshaft Synchronizer (I have to wait till it comes from the USA... Im far away ), if anyone has one for sale, please let me know (V-6 182 c.i.; 3.0L)

but meanwhile, my check engine doesnt light up. Last week it did, but not now. I will check that light, maybe its burn out, but can something else cause this problem?????

Also, I would like to download the ECUs Codes... does anybody have them? Also i would like to know if theres a way of making this check at home (with simple tools instead of a computer). In my previous car I could do this... but I dont know if in the ranger its possible)

Thanks in advance for giving me a hand...

unfortunately there is no way to read codes with at least a generic scan tool. You may be able to attain a free scanning of codes from your local parts store such as Advance Auto Parts, AutoZone, or CarQuest. Sorry I couldnt be of any more help to you.
