Are you running Windows Classic theme?

If so, switch to a different theme like Windows 7 theme.
Yes !!!

I recently changed for better performance. Switched back and everything became NORMAL.

I admire your experience.

THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!

Is there a way to get rid of this? some kind of setting to turn off demo mode at startup?
or having the big sine wave to stop flickering?
If I understand you correctly ....

Re: Polo 1,2 3-Cyl. - WPS 500 Pressure Question

Hello again,

It's interesting to see WPS Readings of each Cylinder.
And further ...

It may be worthwhile to note the oil pressure at high engine speeds.
Too much oil pressure may not allow the valves to close.

You can suspect the weak valve springs (do not have time to close).

Good luck.

Hi,

Could you specify what problems with the engine are currently.

Could you show the work of all the cylinders? :?:

Thank you.

Re: Inverted scope trace

Hi,

It seems that you have questions with a compression in one cylinder. :?:

When measuring the lambda, you selected a probe for ignition. :?:

The straight line of the second probe means you have a working catalyst.

good luck :D
