97 OBS problem AE software

Hey guys I have a question for you. I just recently bought the AE software and got it all activated and so on. I need to check my cylinder rotation velocity and here comes my problem. When going into the live data meter and go to select cylinder rotation velocity for the cylinders I only see 2-8 1 is nowhere to be found, is this normal? And then when 2-8 are shown in live data meter they all read zero,is that normal? I would think there would be at least some differences.

I'm not sure but I don't believe that is a supported monitor on our trucks but I could be wrong

I can't help with your problem but AE should work with our trucks.

I'm not seeing why you would need to measure something like that on our engines. The cylinders (or pistons) don't rotate, so their rotational velocity should always be zero. The linear velocity of the pistons would be related (for the most part) to engine RPM. Cheers!

My understanding is that it is the amount of change the crank see with the fire of each cylinder. So if you have like 1%on seven cylinders and like 5% on one that would say there is a problem to be addressed in that cylinder (injector,low compression and so on)
