Video Case Study: VW Polo Misfire


A great 20 minute video Case Study by James Dillon (dillondiagnostics on YouTube). James tackles a diagnostic job which was booked in to the workshop for the ECU to be swapped. This is where the fun begins. The video covers testing tips and techniques including gas analyser, oscilloscope, ASNU and a little bit of diagnostic brainpower.

You can view the Case Study on YouTube.

WPS500X Pressure Transducer: Updated kit contents


With ongoing changes in vehicle components, we have decided to update the PP836 WPS500X Automotive Pressure Transducer Kit.
The kit will now include the TA156 M12 compression hose in place of the TA105 M16 Ford Triton Hose. We will continue to make the TA105 available as an accessory and are happy to discuss any special requirements with individual customers on a case by case basis.

You can view the WPS500 Pressure Transducer on our website.

Not sure why you would need a WPS500? Why not read an online Case Study by Steve Smith, showing just how useful the WPS500 really is.
