Re: Cinders

They are not shown in INPA, but I can see them with RomRaider software - it writes the log in real time and you can analyse it later, probably there are other options too. But you have different ECU, so I can't help much here.

Re: Cinders

Ok, if you say fuel injector pulse widths are according to ECU tables, then I am guessing that injectors are bad or misaligned cams. But that's just wild guess. Others things should throw some error codes IMHO.

Re: Hi new member with fuel comsumption fault

When engine is cold o2 sensors are not in a play. Fuel is enriched until engine is at it's normal working temp. And cam position sensor should throw an error. Maybe sticking idle valve or something like that?
