Thanks guys, lots of good info here. The mechanic did tell me that it was cylinder #6 that was throwing the code.

There are some inexpensive (and some downright cheap) diagnostic scanners on amazon, seems like this could be a worthwhile investment; any thoughts or recommendations?

Thanks again all!

Yep, I strongly recommend one. That or go ahead and get a Scanguage which will do the same and give you a lot more info, like trans temp to be specific. It's worth the price for that alone in my opinion. Anyway, all the cheap scanners will do the same thing, read the codes. I really see no reason to buy one of the more expensive ones.

Depending on your vehicle's year I'd recommend one of the "better" versions, the most important to me would be ability to cancel codes----the cheapest tend to not have that feature, are "read only" devices.

I'm using an Actron CP9580, can be found through eBay, here's a gently used one for decent price: Actron CP9580A OBD II Can ABS Autoscanner Plus Mint | eBay

There are much cheaper to be sure but as always you get what you pay for.
