    Hi I would say that you would use the protractor on the crank pulley because most engine data will quote inlet valve opens deg BTDC etc so with DTI set on what ever valve you have data for then turning the engine in normal direction of rotatation you should be able to pickup the valve starting to open That is of course after you have used the DTI to determine TDC then set the protractor to zero That is unless you have stupid data as given by Landrover on old 2 1 4 engines where in order to fit a timing chain you found point of opening point of closing disected the two marks to find point of max opening thus a timing mark Regards Pete January 30 2010 at 10 15 pm in reply to Fridays quiz 9459 PeteGreenow Participant No Dave Your wrong Clive doesn t drink proper beer he likes chemically inspired lager but draws the line at Amstel or did last weekend anyway I take it John Tinhams anacranym made you titter after your google search regards Pete January 30 2010 at 4 00 pm in reply to Fridays quiz 9456 PeteGreenow Participant Hi all well heres a clue I moved these from the footwell before removing the panel Hopefully the link will work http i897 photobucket com albums ac176 dinedor IMAG0161 jpg And this fell out when the trim was removed http i897 photobucket com albums ac176 dinedor IMAG0160 jpg Regards Pete January 30 2010 at 3 50 pm in reply to All new light load Amps Clamp from Lee Woods 9429 PeteGreenow Participant Hi Tony I do believe it was me who brought to the attention of the forum members the ferocity of that look She certainly sorted the sweetie out regards Pete January 29 2010 at 8 34 pm in reply to All new light load Amps Clamp from Lee Woods 9427 PeteGreenow Participant Hi John RTFM its obviously fried checken ask Allan Regards Pete January 28 2010 at 3 03 pm in reply to All new light load Amps Clamp from Lee Woods 9423 PeteGreenow Participant Hi The Pub if your lucky Regards Pete January 25 2010 at 11 11 am in reply to Advanced Diagnostic Course 9412 PeteGreenow Participant Hi Careful Jean my laywers are standing by The exciting bit referred to added to by Jean was the fact that we were able contrary to the best advice given by other top training equioment providers to measure the current flow on Digital air mass meters broadband lambdas The ultra low amps clamp that Chauvin Arnoux provided gave such a clear trace on ridiculously low current that previously has been dismissed as non measurable Frank will obviously post later in the week with waveforms etc but it does now mean that what was described as unmeasurable is certainly now measurable Regards Pete January 24 2010 at 11 11 pm in reply to Advanced Diagnostic Course 9407 PeteGreenow Participant Hi All Thanks to

    david cant Participant dale when it is hot the temp sensor voltage should be below 1 volt it goes on a sliding scale from max voltage when cold 5v although it will never be cold enough to see this in reality expect to see at start up 3 5 v approx declining to about 8 of a volt hot on multec systems there will be a rise in voltage near the end of its decline this is not a fault but the end up voltage will be under 1 v i have just done a test on a fiesta which levelled out at 6 of a volt to me it would seem that your temp sender is still saying the engine is at a cooler temp than it is hence the injection duration is extended to cope with this signal just one other thing have you checked the fuel pressure hth david January 26 2011 at 10 46 pm in reply to FIXED 2003 Z18XE Zafira running very rich 13050 david cant Participant hi dale i did say it was a long shot but it was worth the try can you drive the lambda sensor ie send it rich by clamping the fuel return pipe then drive it lean by say pulling the servo pipe off in order to check its response and how quickly it does so in the back of my head i have to think that you have an injector issue going on though is there any fmn members near you with an asnu bench to get them checked i say this because if you have ruled out an air leak via smoke pro then its getting the extra fuel fron somewhere it is possible to check for sticking injectors if you look closely using an amps clamp on the injector feed wire with your scope check the amps ramp as it rises there will be a little bump in it about three quarters of the way up the ramp this is the point where the magnetic coil in the injector solenoid overcomes the spring pressure and lifts the pintel true injector duration use this in comparison to the other injectors to see if you can single out a problem and dont rule out doing a manifold vacuum test where you should be looking at a steady 18 to 21 inches of mercury anything othe than that is pointing you towards the fault i have a book on vacuum results so if you need help with results on this post up what you are getting and i will reply hth david January 26 2011 at 10 16 pm in reply to Toyoya MR2 Misfire number 4 13096 david cant Participant paul this rings a bell about a vw i had a few months ago it also had good spark good injector duration ok ect i had also done a compression test which was ok the fault turned out to be the compression if you cranked it for

    not the cause It was clear from Steve s post that a Lambda fault was the problem the first waveform proved that so hence my comment In your first reply you said I may be way off here but in my experience of MOT emission failures 99 of the time if it fails soley on the CO then its a Faulty cat I have had a couple of MAF faults cause it though and a few lambdas Could you replace the lambda with a pressure guage and test the back pressure because if the cat has collapsed and is causing a blockage it may cause dodgey lambda readings Just a guess hope it useful this is possibly the bit that concerned me I don t like guessing So the second comment Surely if you scope the lamdba first then the cat replacement is a genuine and complete fix I never even contemplate testing or condeming a cat untill i m happy with lambda output seems to be at variance with the initial comment I just get a little fed up of seeing problem cars that have had a fortune spent on them by the number of new parts fitted they arrive with me the customer ask s how much will I charge for fixing it then proceeds to tell me how much they have spent on it already I had just dealt with one such customer when I saw that post just didn t think that we should be guessing Its a learning curve its steep no matter where you are on it Regards Pete March 9 2010 at 8 01 am in reply to Elderly Nissan 200sx MOT fail Excessive CO 9966 PeteGreenow Participant Hi Steve A good fix mate I have to say that I fear that a very high percentage of Cat replacements are treating the symptoms ignoring the cause Must be that us Border Men have the Wye factor ingrained into our mind Regards Pete see you in a few weeks for Mecanex March 7 2010 at 8 10 am in reply to HONESTLY SOME PEOPLE 9844 PeteGreenow Participant Chris My Boy How very dare you You who couldn t take a call at 8 45pm friday couldn t answer at 9 25 saturday Cuz I m tired needed a lay in Oh bless is that nasty man Martin working you to hard Regards Pete March 6 2010 at 10 53 am in reply to HONESTLY SOME PEOPLE 9840 PeteGreenow Participant Hi Keith The alarm fault under alarm triggers on autologic showed volumetrics as the culprit for all recent alarms Under settings I temporarily switched off volumetrics have parked under my bedroom window now for 24 hours the car has been quiet So far this has cost the customer 45 vat he is happy to wait untill monday for further evaluation of volumetrics Regards Pete March 5 2010 at 10 49 pm in reply to HONESTLY SOME PEOPLE 9838 PeteGreenow Participant Hi All Had two today

    many years ago I have to admit though that I would prefer to spend time diagnosing this current problem more than any old Austin 1300 Regards Pete May 26 2010 at 5 33 pm in reply to And we thought Toyota has problems 10826 PeteGreenow Participant Hi I am not sure why the system isn t working I would say that at the moment we can discard any leakage I can assure you I have studied the pressure vessels which appear to be at working pressure with no apparent leakage Obviously a visual only check is only the first step in correct diagnosis I fear that the time has come to do some hands on probing Just my thoughts Pete May 13 2010 at 8 04 am in reply to Delphi Diesel Max 10534 PeteGreenow Participant Hi I haven t gone any further yet my Technical Partner designate is very helpfull arranged a visit from Delphi area rep who showed me the various bits of kit that you get which were in his boot He showed me his brand new DS100E so I said right lets see what cars it can talk to whar depths we can get too He hesitantly told me that his unit had no software in it but that it is very good We made an arrangement for him to send a Delphi tech person to give a full demo the next tuesday so I arranged to have some vehicles in to check it out on this involved borrowing cars from customers loaning both my wifes my car out the Delphi area rep turned up 24 hours early when I was out doing a job that would allow me to be in at the time we had arranged He promised me a call back to agree a new visit either from him another delphi tech or someone from tech partner that was 26 April I still await his call I have spoken to Martin Wainright who uses the ds100e but as he isn t a Diesel point doesn t have the extra level of software for his advice on the tool he was relatively positive about it Perhaps Stuart White may be able to add something to this debate because I saw that it was one of his goodies for winning top tech Regards Pete May 13 2010 at 6 05 am in reply to audi cabroliet emissions 10747 PeteGreenow Participant Hi David I think your theory of compression pressure entering through a poorly seating injector as Sean says probably no This is not a GDi system is it But I would say that you are probably right to be concerned over the injectors it would be well worthwhile getting them out checking cleaning them Regards Pete May 12 2010 at 5 54 am in reply to Aircon or not advice needed 10712 PeteGreenow Participant Hi Danny If your currently netting 30 from each subbed out job your subby is reliable able to meet your demand
