Star C3 - How do I get live data?
Hi all. I recently got my hands on a Star C3 setup, and the seller was very helpful with reading codes etc. However, I have a small problem with the car now whereby I need to get live engine data. Unfortunately, I wasn't shown how to get it. Can anyone lead me in the right direction please?
The specific problem is hesitation and surging/flat spots on rapid acceleration, especially on kick down. I have cleaned the MAF, which helped a little, but the problem is still there. I thought that if maybe a coil pack was breaking down, or maybe a misfire, that it would show up on Star, which would show me where to go next.
Any help would be gratefully received.
