Opefully within the next 7 days I will be able to order a light pen, and rs232cable for 4 gas unit.
My new machine is a allen sea. Parts will be coming from california
i obtained the allen smart engine analyzer for free.
I am excited to get the allen going it also came with a separate scope unit, and 4 gas analyzer.
This machine has far more features than my main engine analyzer a sun mea 1500.
Which is currently down, a couple mice had a party inside last winter.
The sun will be running very soon, ive fixed 95 percent of the damage they did to machine.
Gonna drop main board at my analyzer tech to be fixed, and a couple cables repaired and the sun wil be going again, yipee.
The garage I took the car to did not have any type of diagnostic equipment at all.
The only reason I brought car to that garage is because they were 65.00 hour, everybody else
wants 89.00 to 100+ hour for diagnostic work.
The mechanic replaced my tierod end on 86 surburban today, with success, but the car was a total failure!
Il have alook under the hood again my self looking for damaged wires, and have my brother drop the ramps back over here, so I can look under the car and trace all wires.
Which needs a couple capacitors replaced on the main board and the printer cable repaired. Fixed.
As far as I know since I owned the car, since last march, no transmission work has been done.
What ever is taking draw, is feeding back power is traveling to one of the 2 thin wires on the alternator plug.
I took fuse #17 so draw stops while car is parked. To stop the current drain.
I wish this bad luck car repair on nobody.
Worst case car ive owned, ive been working on cars since I was 15 and went to technical colledge for 3 years. +3 years training in high school.
I was a mechanic for 1 year professional.
Then I got into roofing. Money was better.
I still manage to fix 90percent of my car repairs my self.
Hopefully I can manage to figure out, whats wrong with this terrible car,
