Hi Y’all!! Can you even believe it’s been 3 months since I’ve posted anything?!? sweeps cobwebs away When I looked at the date of my last post my jaw dropped. I could not believe so much time had passed. It certainly didn’t seem that long. But life has been speeding along and our summer has been filled with a growing baby (she’s 6 months old now!), swimming lessons, trips to the springs, family visits, shower curtain making, attending Hubby’s softball games, church get-togethers, etc. We set out to create a simple and reliable supercharging system specifically for small engines that would be much less expensive than existing analogues. This task has been accomplished through several years of hard work. The newly developed system for a 50cc engine provides more than a 50% increase in power.
Another thing to keep in mind is that autonomous cars will require many new city infrastructures to release their full potential, while contributing very little, at least initially, to city income. As infrastructures are already crumbling, money will bein short supply to make the necessary changes.
I run a KOEO self test with my IDS. The vehicle has no on demand codes. But, has quite a few KOEO CMDTC’s (Continuous Memory Diagnostic Trouble Codes) commonly referred to as memory codes and a pending code. Let’s go through them. The P0012 is very common on these engines. I highlighted it for a reason. With IDS you get a decent code description. As you can see it is an issue with cam timing on bank 1. P0172 is bank 1 rich. P0174 is bank 2 lean. P0301 and P0303 are misfires detected for cylinders #1 and #3. P0316 is a misfire detected at start up. More clues here. But, let’s look at some live data.
You think the battery is your problem but you’re not sure. Fortunately, you can check the state of charge of your battery using an inexpensive multimeter. This test will reveal whether or not your battery is fully charged. Testing a battery is relatively simply, inexpensive and leaves you with a sense of empowerment. If your car won’t start and you suspect a dead battery, whip out your multimeter and get to work. If you prefer to have a professional test your battery, give the team at Platinum Automotive Care a call.
Our innovation and thinking can be found from the inside out. We design board-level shielding for automotive electronic assemblies in head units, control units, computers, displays and other electronic subsystems. We provide Fabric over Foam (FoF), Form-in-Place (FIP), and other gasket solutions for a variety of consoles and displays, and use proprietary material formulations to create custom EMI suppression soft ferrites including airbag-connector baluns and multi-hole connecter plates for modules. We even deliver signal line board-level suppression components and wound rods for ignition and DC motor RF noise suppression.
The resolution is pretty good considering how small this device is. It has 10 MHz and a sample rate of 40MS/s. That’s not the kind of resolution that gives you fine detail, but it’s often more than enough for a travelling service tech, and it is a great help in troubleshooting.
