Default ETEC DIY Diagnosis software any good?

My (new to me) Hydrasport has twin 2006 Etec 250's. Last time I was out the starboard engine temp alarm went off around 4000 rpms. I shut it down for a minute. When I restarted it was fine with no alarm. Ran another few hours with no issue. It did it again at the same rpm. Shut it down for a minute then restart with no alarm. Ran fine rest of the trip. Water pressure gauge read 10 psi and tell tale was strong. I'm going to change out the thermostats and poppet valve regardless. Even if it doesn't need it at least ill know its good.
I typically do all my own maintenance/repairs. Are these DIY diagnostic software packages worth it? Are they accurate and do they pose any opportunity to mess things up worse?

Flush the EMM after you clean out the EMM passages with a large ty-wrap or equivalent.

If you're talking about the bootleg copies sold on Ebay for about $60, yes they work.
