Re: dodge pickup no crank rpm

I am going to assume that this Ram 1500 is a pick-up truck and not a van? Then I am going to assume that it was built for USA use? Do not condemn the engine computer until you first get a crankshaft signal ! No ECU in the world could make heads or tales about anything from the waveform that you post...

Re: question for direct injection current waveform

I may end up being corrected here by a pico master user or tech, but I believe that you may be working with a piezo type injector. If I am correct you should be using a 3rd channel to monitor the injector ground, and from what I have read and understand is that piezo or pizzio injectors work with ce...

Re: 1988 Ranger Skipping

You are being like the horse that is dying of thirst and we have led you to a nice fresh water pond - but you will not drink ! where are some pressure waveforms ? what was the valve lash clearance set to ? How are the cam lobes on these two cyl...
