Re: Picoscope 2204

Thought that was the case, at £130 I was ever the optimist. Appreciate the speedy response though, thanks.

Picoscope 2204

Hi, I've seen a Picoscope 2204 for sale. I have a 4 channel at work but I want to expand my own collection of tools and was wondering if that series is applicable for use with Automotive 6 and for general use on a vehicle.
I've quizzed the owner but he doesn't really know.

Re: 207 1.6 HDI P0087

There's it filtered slightly.
The injectors are disconnected and regulator isn't on the system so the peaks and troughs should be pump rotations?

Re: 207 1.6 HDI P0087

We don't have the necessary equipment to control the pressure regulator to perform a pump proof test. We have a blanking kit which tricks it to produce maximum pressure.

Re: 207 1.6 HDI P0087

As you already have replaced the fuel filter is this now out of diagnostic plan, but there could be other things there are restricting the fuel flow to and from the high pressure pump. Is there a priming pump in the fuel tank or is the fuel being sucked from the tank !!!. I have completely bypassed...

Re: 207 1.6 HDI P0087

How's about a pump proof test ? By replacing the rail pressure regulator on the pump with a dead end blank? I've captured a couple waveforms today if that's what you mean? That waveform doesn't look right to me with peaks & trough's like that & low in amplitude, read the DTC description - what's it...

Re: 207 1.6 HDI P0087

Third gear pull and then into limp at 1.1 seconds in. P0087 is the only code.

Re: 207 1.6 HDI P0087

Thanks for the speedy reply. I've managed to spend a couple of hours on the car this afternoon and removed all necessary parts to access the pressure sensor (not pleasant). I'm pretty sure the sensor is working correctly, I've labelled my capture in notes for the driving part of the waveform. It's n...
