Equipment: Do I have the necessary equipment to successfully complete the re-flash?

Information: Have I pulled all technical information (TSB's, repair manuals, etc.) that gives me the information to perform the re-flash correctly? Keep in mind a re-flash is just part of a repair procedure.

Diagnostics: Will a re-flash fix my specific problem? How did I come to this conclusion?
