Hello Tomersh and thank you for the enquiry.
Can I just clarify the numbers you are referring too?
Below the first bar bar within the bar graph we have:
18/56 (Example only)
This refers to:
Misfire/Total engine cycles
In our example above 18/56 indicates 18 misfires through 56 engine cycles.
Please be aware of the misfire detection method with reference to cylinder balance (AC ripple).
The misfire counter serves as an indicator and not a true counter with reference to misfires as there are numerous factors that can effect the count that are not related to misfire. (Electrical load or alternator output stability)
My tip would be to look at the bar graph levels in relation to each other. A continual low level bar with a high misfire count in comparison with the other bars/cylinders would get alarm bells ringing
I hope this helps, take care......Steve
