    C&P FRAM PH5911

    Hmmmmm . slipped my mind and never took pic of date code before it got chucked last week. Here in South Africa its used on just about all Renaults - wonder if the rubbish is only produced for this market?

    C&P FRAM PH5911

    6K miles and Shell HX7 oil. Pleats and construction are not too bad but don't like the ADBV material or construction .......... (barely rubber but not hard or brittle) ADBV feels like its got pimples and if you look at the detail pic at just the right angle it looks like sections of possibly...

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    If there really is an issue its quite possible................................

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    I cannot recommend anything I have not owned because it would simply be wrong. ITO performance and logging abilities of plain emissions-related stuff only - I have an OBDLink LX that in combination with TorquePro is imo going to be hard to beat for the price

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    I don't know - you know your local state requirements or if you don't check up on them. If it is, and with no engineering info, how do you intend solving the problem?

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    This is the problem: Both STFT and LTFT cannot possibly ever be 0 at the same time for any extended period - sure LTFT can be 0 for hours or days, but STFT, due to the presence and operation principles of the upstream O2, must always be cycling in small values, either positive or negative...

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    No use shouting at the messenger. I am stating facts only. Its you (and some other here too) with the idea that you need to address something on the fueling or wherever system on the engine while using a tool not designed for the job and also without detailed engineering knowledge (I don't...

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    I'd say you have a O2 sensor not a wideband A/F sensor. Other than that ........... imo no. LTFT is a direct reflection of the ability of the ECU to keep the engine operating as close as possible to the factory desired maps - you may not like the slow variations and fairly big number seen on...

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    OK - forgive me for being honest but that scanner is completely useless when trying to chase real-time variations .................... There is a ton of mismatch in the sampling frequency of individual parameters ........... Id say spend money on a decent scanner first before you chase any...

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    Dont have a scanner like yours - I have Autel etc etc etc so I am going to guess O2S11

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    Video of the B1S1 or upstream "O2 voltage" is fine for now

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    Easiest if you dont know the spec of the thing - Post either a log of the voltage or a graph while its idling.................. fast swings like a sinewave is a simple O2

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    Sometimes but not always ................ This is why I am questioning people commenting on single figure O2 voltages you supplied earlier - they seem to be under the impression that its not an O2 but rather an A/F sensor

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    You cannot draw that conclusion using the voltages only ............... Narrow band or O2 will be producing a relatively fast changing voltage signal very close in form to a sine wave if all is well

    OBDII : LONGFT1 -15% at idle ( Car running rich )

    I don't know ................. looking at all that has been said here I think there is simply too many unknowns mentioned. I would suggest let the thing sit overnight and cool down completely. Switch on ignition without starting the engine, and set up logging of the O2 sensor voltage. Now...

    Ongoing Civic Woes. Repair failed to correct.

    Fingered a few suspect temperature-related sensors with a large gallon can of cold water and a long spout/hose (kept it around in anticipation) ........................ When the heat thing happens, direct the water at the offending bugger and drain the can on it ......................

    18 Ah AGM battery, Will it alone be able to.....?

    Where do you get that info from on their website? ............................... To me, the use/application looks rather specific to only a few rather specific models

    Can you fry a battery with CTEK Stage 6? Or does that help it

    Serious question: What's your definition of a dumb charger? - simple transformer-based thing with a bunch of rectifiers supplying the leads? How do you know for a fact its chasing 5 Amps into the battery at about 16V? How do you know for a fact its only ever chasing 5Amp into the battery at any...
