Durametric Code Reader

Recommended Posts

Ok I received the Durametric code reader today and it's pretty cool. Able to diagnose and clear my check airbag light. I was fooling around with it and checked my "actual values" and it states this:

That I have redlines 14500 times and that I have EXCEEDED redline 140 times. I drive the car hard and usually do take it up to redline but rarely do I hit the limiter and to my knowledge I don't think I overrevved the engine a 140 times....I mean that would mean the engine would have some pretty serious damage right? Anyone else experiencing these values with this reader?

Yes, any stage 2's are not good.

That 140 is ignitions -- not times you have over rev'ed. One theory is that it takes 6 ignitions to make one complete engine revolution - so this could happen in just one instance.

The most common causes of stage 2 over revs is missed downshifts or spinning the car on the track (backwards) and not putting the clutch in soon enough. Stage 2 over revs can do damage because the engine can not control what is happening to it.

Is this correct that the Durametric code reader software can read and clear proprietary items such as airbag lights? If so, awesome!

Thanks Rick

Yes. The only codes it can not clear (at this time) is alarm codes. See their feature matrix here.

Can it read your top speed? If it can, then I assume you can clear that as well.
