Re: I.A.C Valve????

Just had an IAC on a wrangler (TJ) (short on to fuel rail inside conduit, rail had pushed through split). 4 wire. Each pair was always switching so two high and two low. As a thought looking at yours I would thinking Brown/Green channels OK. Blue/Red open circuit somewhere after the IAC. But as Robs...

Re: Vw golf 1.6 runs bad

Is the capture taken at normal operating temp ?
Has me thinking too. Thats one long injector duration.

Re: WPS waveforms

Works out @ cyl #1 to me going by +1 rule....... I'm not sure what you're asking with the cranking compression capture ? Did you have the throttle wide open as you would with a gauge ? Rats! You beat me to it. To busy making pretty pictures. FF http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee88/Nobbyclrk/Miss...

Re: Temperature Measurement and the Fluke 80TK

I think the look-up table would give, in theory, a far more accurate result. I had considered making one up myself but found using off the shelf thermocouples, the offset required daily adjustment depending on ambient as you have pointed out. So opted to take advantage of the K type linearity output...

Any update/images on this yet?

Re: WPS Compression Hoses

Thanks Rob i just measured a few plugs most standard 14mm plugs have thread length of about 17mm.
The O'ring once rolled off will allow a collar to be removed allowing a longer thread. With collar removed you have 19mm less O'ring. :wink:

Re: Temperature Measurement and the Fluke 80TK

... but I think I can answer that now for myself! The Pico 4x23 scopes have a resolution of 10mv, where a k type probe has a Thermoelectric Voltage in Millivolts (ie the output) of -2.2mv at -50degC to 0mv at 0degC to 4.1mv at 100degC to 10mv at about 250degC and about 20mv at 500degC. So based on ...

Re: Temperature Measurement and the Fluke 80TK

That probe is for a direct connection to a K type thermocouple. I had assummed (possibly incorrectly) the connector made up some sort of referance/cold junction. As I'm able to measure a voltage at room tempreture. I'm not sure what causes that junction although it can be worked out and that is what...

Re: Temperature Measurement and the Fluke 80TK

Check your email. Probe sent. Best do some calibration tests first. The zero compensation may need adjusting but should be accurate to a couple of degrees. Keep sample rates low and be prepared to filter the results. From the few runs I have done using that probe (EGT's 700*C +) the results are good...

Re: Skoda 1.4 tdi crank sensor

Sorry was the forth pin after the missing tooth on the pick up on the crank
That explains what I see'd.
