Auto Enginuity??

Hey Guys, I was just wanting to get some information from some of you who have it, how do you like it and what kind of tests can you perform with it? I was looking at getting an edge insight for gauges but my truck just developed a miss, so i am now wondering if i should spend my money on auto enginuity before i buy an insight, what do you guys think??

Or can someone point me in the right direction for diagnosing my miss? The only thing i have checked is my ficm voltage and it is at 47.9-48 volts koeo, cranking and koer. Its missing at idle up to 2000 rpm then it seems to clear up.

Thanks a lot Ben

The ae software will pay for it self with a diagnostic session at the dealer. The edge insight is also not a bad piece to have

Sounds like an injector sticking. Throw a couple of bottles of Rev-X in it.

Auto Enginuity is a great tool to have but I would try the Rev-X before I thought about changing an injector. Even if you still need an injector it is good for the rest of the motor too. But from your description I think the Rev-X will fix you up.

Missing??

Well guys i tried out the rev-x and ran the truck for about a half hour and drove it about 10-15 miles, unfortunately my miss did not go away.. I just don't understand why its missing, it ran fine, i did an egr delete and oil cooler rebuild, replaced the icp sensor, installed the updated fuel pressure regulator, changed the fuel filters & the oil and now its missing?? Any ideas on what it can be?

Also has anyone ever used scanXL software? If so is it any good or am i better off spending a little extra and going with AE?

Thanks again guys

If it has't worked in the first 20-30 minutes running, its not going to probably.
It helped mine for a little while then the miss (when cold) came back.
My advice is to invest in the AE if you plan to have your truck awhile. It will come in very handy. I'm going to get it myself soon i hope.

AE is definately worth it. Glad I got mine, it's already paid for itself between mine and my wife's truck.
