Re: guided tests

Are you using pico 6 or 7?

Six is in the automotive menu at the top. Pico 7 automatically displays guided tests on screen when software opened.

Re: Mechanical Injectors Tests

Ford Transit diesel injector test cylinder 1.psdata I've done some more test using the Piezo directly connected to the injector pipes and a x1 probe. I think it looks like three injectors are failing. I'd appreciate your views. It seems that the forum can't accept the size of the files so the other...

Re: Mechanical Injectors Tests

Thanks Ivor, maybe I misunderstood what Ben was saying, but now I'll try and use the piezo with a BNC lead connected and see what results I can get.

Re: Exhaust vibration??

Hi Curt, I have had a Honda in today for a replacement exhaust system. It seems at the moment that these Honda's are a hot topic as the CATs are very easy to gain access to and steal. We have had two in recently where the CATs had been stolen. Initially I thought a battery powered grinder had been u...

Re: Mechanical Injectors Tests

Was going to do some more testing this evening after work but the Pulse diesel injection unit has now failed. I seem to get no end of problems with equipment. I won't be buying another. What I'll do is look more in detail at the NVH kit and see how I can test the vibrations from the injectors with it.

Re: Mechanical Injectors Tests

this is a Transit Di. The injectors are not electronic controlled, they are pure mechanical hydraulic pressure operation only . Understood !!! In this case then I'm guessing it does not have CKP either ? The price of injectors is possibly not economically viable and we still don't know if the pump ...

Re: P0103 Peugeot boxer 2013

If you disconnect the multi-plug from the maf sensor and load test the wire 12V (5 A) i think it was, then if it will hold that load depress the clutch pedal and put the gearbox in reverse, and if the fuse remains in tact, move on from there...

Re: Diesel injection systems

Thanks Ben, I've done a trial run here with an amps clamp as Ivor advised. See here;/support/topic22110.html. Sorry if I've misunderstood Ivor with the Piezo as I thought he was referring to piezo injectors, which this engine has not got fitted. I never thought about the pickup connected to the inje...

Re: Exhaust vibration??

Keep us posted Curt. Just be mindful that if a dyno is used to run the engine up to speed that the engine can and will get very hot very quickly, hence a good cooling fan in front of the car is recommended, and then would create more noise for you to cope with :mrgreen:
