Re: combo Z13DT non start issue.

Re: combo Z13DT non start issue.

When I worked at Vauxhall some 16 years ago we got a none runner in, an Astra G diesel. I did a code scan and no faults found, the recovery firm advised the customer that the fuel pump had failed?

I have Mercedes-Benz diagnostic data for this car and this evening tested the operation of the cam and crank sensors, followed by the ignition and fuel pressure/volume flow rate. I'll upload the wave for...

Mercedes Benz SLK (FIXED)

I towed this car into the workshop as a none starter/runner. As it is a 1997/8 model petrol 4 cylinder the diagnostics are either blink codes or the old scanners of age. Using a solus pro with 14.4 software I read out any fault codes and only one was present, which referred to the ABS system. I can ...

Re: SAAB 9-3 petrol (Updated to FIXED)

For the readers that have followed the thread, I had concerns with whitish smoke from cylinder 2 when the spark plug was removed. I had major amounts of whitish/blue smoke from the exhaust tail pipe at engine idle, which never cleared during running. I did a couple of engine cylinder tests using the...

Re: Cannot print in Picoscope 7

Yes I had exactly the same problem. I can assure you it will not be PS7 software, but your drivers for your printer are more likely, which is the problem I had with it.
