    Hi guys i'd just like a quick hand with some values i get from INPA. I have a problem with manifold pressure as can be seen from this pic.



    Just for clarity can someone tell me what the second pressure value is (the set point) Both are obviously off the scale and i'm assuming that the sensor reading is the first one.

    Thanks.

    Danger to the manifold?

    See here for a similar issue I had with INPA, which turned out to be a non-issue. Does the car run properly? Divide those readings by 10 and you have almost a green value.

    The car is having problems (there's a thread in the e46 forum) The fault code is pulling is about the reading for the sensor being implausible. Which INPA is showing. Was just wondering about the set point. As it seems a little weird to have two values basically showing the same thing?

    The set point is usually the target, or ideal figure.
    In this case, both actual and the setpoint have min and max figures, so it seems like the "setpoint" in this case is expected/calculated value and actual value.

    Setpoint (target value) of 549, actual value 554. Looks OK to me. Why does the the car want so much oxygen? What are the O2 sensors reading?

    EDIT: RPM looks high for idle too. What is the Idle Control Valve value?
