    Question about some engine readings that are in the ! range. I can't find any info online in English as to what issues they are potentially showing me. Is there some preventative maintenance I should be doing here to prevent a big bill or breakdown later?

    No error codes were stored, and the chugging under acceleration at 2-3k revs I had experience before has gone since I reset the engine adaptations. There was a very loose spark plug when I did the plugs in January.

    As I found it.

    Google spider: Air use of the Idle Control Valve, Engine Load


    I then reset the adaptations.



    Thanks.

    normal lambda opererating voltage is usually 0.5-0.7 volts


    i think you must have Titania type lambda sensors...

    Cylinder 1 and 2 do vary from 0-250 units. Maybe I need new coil packs. I will try DIS and see what happens.

    Yea, I see stuff like that all the time, but no obvious reason why, and no fault codes either.

    I assume it is from differences in whatever base file is used for known good values.
    Rarely is there any associated fault codes that would point to it being an actual problem.
