Do you know that I work at the factory on new trucks that are much more advanced than any redblock or megasquirted redblock and we NEVER use a scope for anything. Whether it's doing diag on the canbus systems, checking position sensors, anything. And we're the engineers that build brand new vehicles.

It's not exactly flaming when you've been giving bad advice out the entire time. Take off the fire hat, and take off the dunce cap while you're at it. You've been tooting your own horn REALLY ****ING LOUDLY the entire thread, and not helping, but that's pretty much what you do... You were doing better when you just used to tell everyone to polish their multimeter skills until they were as good as you.

You should have just dropped out of this one after your first post and you were subsequently informed that a scope wasn't necessary to see what's going on here. If you are admittedly "no dyno tooner" and there are several present who ARE, back the truck up, instead of going so far to defend your methods and your "advanced mind" and your daily wrenching. If you're striving to be professional, ****ing sweet man, more power to you but your posts definitely don't reflect it and haven't for some time.

I am aware of my shortcomings and my achievements. I am PROUD of the fact that today I get to go enjoy the pocket full of cash that I have earned through hard work and skills I have learned from places such as tbricks. Sorry if my rhetoric came of as pompous, arrogant, or simply just rubbed somebody the wrong way.

well hose me. I went outside to mow the lawn and discovered that I had a flat tire. Instead of reaching for the airchuck right off the bat I thought I would diagnose it a little further. Busted out my trusty ol scope (no multimeters here), had a little challenge figuring out where I needed to place the probes, so I settled on the tread and the rim. Proceeded to observe the output while I added air to the tire.

So, I got this notice on the screen that said "no signal". Does that mean I need to install some kind of TPMS so the scope can tell me where the leak is? or should I have attached the other probe to the tread as well, just on the other side of the tire?

I think you should have poked the test leads into the tire that still had air in it to get a baseline reading.

Should have waved your wheel and tire cert at it, would have inflated itself without fixing the leak.

So I guess a pocket full of cash trumps giving good advice, or even being the least bit humble regarding skills that most highschoolers used to get as part of a standard curriculum.
