Hint:

*: When cranking the engine, each cylinder measures the engine rpm.

In this active test, the fuel and ignition of all cylinders is cut, and cranking occurs for approximately 10 seconds. Then, each cylinder measures the engine rpm. If a cylinder's engine rpm is higher than the others, that cylinder's compression pressure is compared to the others, and whether or not the compression pressure is low can be determined.

  1. Warm up the engine.
  2. Turn the ignition switch off.
  3. Connect the intelligent tester to the dlc3.
  4. Turn the ignition switch on and turn the intelligent tester on.
  5. Select the following menu items: diagnosis / enhanced obd ii / active test / compress check.


Hint:

If the results are not displayed normally, select the display items from the data list before performing the active test. Select the following menu items: diagnosis / enhanced obd ii / data list / user data / eng speed #1 and eng speed #2, eng speed #3, eng speed #4 (press the yes button to change the eng speed #1 to #4 is yes) and then press the enter button.

  1. While the engine is not running, press the right or left button to change the compress check to on.

Hint:

After performing the above procedure, the active test's compress check will start. Fuel injection for all cylinders is prohibited, and the each cylinder's engine rpm measurement will enter standby.

  1. Fully open the throttle.
  2. Crank the engine for about 10 seconds.
  3. Monitor the engine speed (eng speed #1 to #4) displayed on the tester.


Hint:

At first, the tester's display will show each cylinder's engine rpm measurement to be extremely high. After approximately 10 seconds of engine cranking, each cylinder's engine rpm measurement will change to the actual engine rpm.
