R6 Beta automoitve

Post by Euro Performance » Tue Jan 09, 2007 3:16 am

Hello Group, on the program cylinder balancer test, we download the program to two different computers, one anytime we turn it on it shows 6 cylinder on one computer and eight cylinders on another. Why? After test, how do we know which one is #1, because their is no trigger. Can someone out there help me out.

Hello Amir

Thank you for your post.

If you maximise the 'view' you will see 8 cyliners on the PC with the smaller monitor.
The intention of this test is to report a quick result, say after a MOT, as a very basic 'health check'. If a cylinder has been identified as suspect, it is advised that subsequent investigation with a conventional compression testing gauge is carried out.
Another check that can reveal more without taking the plugs out is to use the First Look sensor with the Automotive software. Please see here for more details.
