Re: European Auto Repair Shop - BMW specialized

It depends on what your doing but for compression you could use the peaks or add a channel and use spark or injector pulse, you can use the crankshaft if it has sync gap.

Re: European Auto Repair Shop - BMW specialized

For rotation ruler on the screen pull the green round dot in the bottom right corner to where you want 0 degrees to be and then pull the second green dot to where you want 720 to be, the ruler tab will let you add the partitions you want for each stroke etc

Re: Volvo FMX V4 Euro6

Oh yeah you could say we've seen a few cams lol, we had one on a Renault recently where the lobe was spinning free on no 6 pump unit and the rocker bridge for the exhaust valve had smashed the top of the pump unit and the funny thing was they had bought it in after they had replaced no.6 injector ye...

Volvo FMX V4 Euro6

Well I know there are a few of you out there interested in using the Pico on trucks so I thought I'd share my process with this one as I have done a few of these now and Pico has definitely improved the accuracy and speed of the diagnosis with them.

Re: Relative Compression newbie learning to trust the wiggles

Sorry its took so long to update but I did forget about this one, I can at least confirm that after a couple of weeks and with 3000 km under its belt the repair was a success, in the heat of battle and the usual pressure from the customers to have their vehicles back by the day before I didn't get m...
