On channel A i hade the maf signal,on channel B the tps and channel C the O2 sensor.On the upload file (bad maf psdata)
you can see that at hard acceleration the maf is very low and not good patern and the O2 sensor is lean.I took out the maf sensor and cleaned it with maf cleaner but it was the same,nothing changed.Then i changed the maf with a new one and the engine reved nice and on hard acceleration there was no hesitation.On the upload file (Maf changed and ok.psdata)
you can see very clear that the maf sensor is hiting about 4.4 volts with a good patern and the O2 sensor is going rich all the time at full throtle.So i'm confidence with the fix of the car with a happy customer.The last year i was working with vantage pro,a very good 2 channel scope.But this pico with 4 channels is amazing.I work it with a very fast laptop and i could say that its like riding a formula 1.Thanks pico and keep up the good work.I use the scope every day so i can learn to use it the best way and collecting waveforms from known good cars,building my own library.I will post more fixes with the pico which i believe will help.
Many thanks for your contribution to the forum. Please keep your investigations coming.
Pleased to hear you are happy with the Pico
