Re: po125 fault code

We don't have this exact model in the US but that shouldn't matter. Mitsubishi version of P0125: Engine started (cold); and the ECM detected that the ECT sensor signal decreased from more than 104ºF to less than 104ºF or the ECT signal did not reach at least 104ºF in 5 minutes, or the ECT sensor sig...

Re: Looking for Insights in diagnosis of a Large POP On acce

Ended up under the gun for time. Replaced the Distributor as a whole. Problem gone. I will put the old distributor on the distributor machine this coming weekend and hopefully get some patterns. I had already changed the module, and coil wihout any improvement. The wiring didn't seem to have any fra...

Re: Looking for Insights in diagnosis of a Large POP On acce

Thanks Robski, I'll be giving autonerds a call. Just got a dedicated pc for the Pico Scope. I didn't know there were better cables I could get for Ignition. I've been using a much older OTC automotive scope for Ignition. Only switched to Pico when I had to take it for a drive. I'd like to be using i...

Looking for Insights in diagnosis of a Large POP On accel

Hoping to tap into all the minds here for some insight. Our shop seems to be changing direction and going back to the 50's and 60's. Usually working on cars where I can use a scan tool to great advantage. I think I've gotten a bit rusty with the older cars. I've been spoiled by being able to hook a ...

Re: Virus Warning with the latest update of Picoscope?

Thanks for the quick reply. It did seem rather odd that it happened right after I installed an update to picoscope software. I wanted to make sure nobody else was getting this. I have removed it, and installed the latest beta version. After seeing your post I tracked the events leading up to it. I h...

Virus Warning with the latest update of Picoscope?

VirusInPicoScopeSoftware.jpg
I got this message this morning when I went to turn on my Picoscope computer. Is this a false positive?

Installed 6.10.18.149 yesterday.

Thanks,

Re: trigger

How about Interval trigger? I haven't ever tried this myself because I'm usually looking at the relation between cam and crank, and so trigger off the cam. Pico scope has so many Advanced triggers I'm sure you could figure a way to do it. https://www.picotech.com/library/oscilloscopes/advanced-digit...

Re: Audi A2 1,4 AUA Engine Misfire

I was hoping to see a fix posted on this one. I am curious. Was a leak down check performed? I'm in the USA, and so not seeing the same engines you all get to see. But what you are seeing reminds me very much of a Ford DOHC 6 cylinder motor that gave me issue. I remember this one because it was the ...

Re: Issue with Triggering from a filtered channel?

I keep running into this issue, and have been waiting awhile before continuing the discussion. I just recently had to verify proper control of an alternator that is controlled via demand by the PCM. I've never really wanted to understand this kind of system design, but gotta work with what you get. ...

Re: The search for overlap.

FF, Well done. I wish I had the free time you do. My wife would have been finding me Honey-dewS after a 1/2 hour. I must admit to still be digesting all that I've seen. I'm thinking to myself how am I going to easily put this to use? But I am not dis-believing anymore. Elusive but really there. Than...
