A couple of months ago the turbo went out on my 2002 Audi A4 and I had no idea what to do. I knew that if I took it to the dealership that they were going to gouge me by charging some ridiculous price for a brand new turbo. I told my mechanic I wanted to do some research before I decided to buy a new turbo for my Audi. I went online and found that the Turbo in my car was a BorgWarner. For those of you that don’t know, BorgWarner is an extremely reputable manufacturer of Turbos. I did some research on their company, and as it turns out they are a Fortune 500 company and they make not only turbos, but a wide variety of parts for powertrains. The two men didn’t know what to call their new venture. They were encouraged by their Sunday school class to call it Christian Brothers Automotive, as they were two brothers in Christ. So, in August 1982, Mark Carr and his partner opened a complete automotive repair facility in Mission Bend, Texas, a suburb of Houston, and founded Christian Brothers Automotive Corporation (CBAC).

The touchscreen of the kiosk that makes it so user friendly, stylish and enables the smooth application of sophisticated software is open to abuse, not from the users, on the contrary but from microbes and germs. These microbes and germs however, don’t effect the screen in any way, but deposits on the screen from arsenic, plant and animal extracts, germs and viruses and other known poisons are harmful to the users of the kiosk. Furthermore, viruses such as flu which can live on a hard surface for up to 24 hours; imagine how many people that virus could infect on a busy kiosk.
I decide to start with making sure we have the right PCM in the vehicle. This is a shot of the module info with the DRB-3 scan tool. Looks good so far. Notice that this is a JTEC controller. This will be important later on. I also looked at my scanned KOEO values and all looked normal. I checked my scanned crank sensor and cam sensor values while cranking and they were erratic. I really don’t trust scanned values for crank and cam signals. I want to see them in real time.

Wow! I’ve had rodent issues on 4 cars, including my new, 2017 Forester, where a little bugger was chewing at the insulation on the firewall, and recently had a check engine light on my 2005 Mercedes C240. I had it in the shop today and a critter got into an area near the gas tank, made a nest which jammed a solenoid open, tripping a trouble code on the computer. This can be real trouble: dead or damaged vehicle, including a real chance of a fire. Thank you for your article – as you point out, it isn’t a panacea, but it’s a great place to start.
