    thanks bambino ... i am not a serious mechanic, just a car enthusiast with engineering background ... i only troubleshoot our own cars ... its enough that you introduced the technique of checking compression problems electronically ... with my crude tools, i can do it barok way

    it looks like your future gadgets would include pressure transducers so you can finally have true pressure waveforms

    if you are serious of fixing cars , upgrading your skills is the best investment

    are you interested of some tools that you can build yourself ?

    or the picoscope kit with first look sensor kit ( pressure transducer )

    you have'nt seen the misfire diagnostics capability of this amazing tool and the test will only take 5 minutes or less

    correction. hindi pala sa speedlab na inquire ko for the diesel compression test na 2k. sa autotechnika pala sa the fort yun.

    How do i disable ignition on our Starex for compression test? It is model 2003 TDCI engine. I hope it is as easy as for a gas engine.

    Thanks.

    If your fuel injection pump is the VE (ROTARY) type, you will have to disconnect the wire to the injection pump's shut-off valve so that the pump will not deliver fuel to the injectors.

    If it's the later common rail system, the fuse to the ECU should be removed to prevent the ECU from triggering the injectors.

    In both cases, you are preventing the engine from running by electrically disabling the injection system.

    ignition key off , use a remote starter switch to crank the engine

    that way you're not inviting the check engine light to set on you

    but the best if you are properly equipped to handle a diesel one
