OTC Nemisys Scan Tool and 6.0 Diesels

Anyone have experience with one of these scan tools and 6.0's? If so, have you read/graphed the EOT PID with this tool?

Yep... I got a Nemysis scan tool that's about 2 months old. Not sure what "PID" is, but I have been able to do live Data while driving the truck. I get about 3-4 pages of live data, including the EOT readings and a bunch of other data.

still exploring all the settings to what the tool can and won't do.

PIDs are your sensors. EOT, TFT, ECT ect.

Based on the prices that I've seen, it is going to be far more economical to get AutoEnginuity with the domestic bundle from RiffRaff then it is going to get the equilivant from Nemysis. Unless I'm just looking at the wrong price list.

I have considered the AutoEnginuity, but I am after something a little simpler for on the fly when I am driving by myself.

I have access to a Snap-On Modis, which I use on occasion, it is an awesome tool, but it is somewhat cumbersome.

I have a Snap-On Ethos, but it is not Bi-Directional, so therefore has no functionality testing capability. Other than that it is a great piece.

I also have a Matco 9001N, which is the same as an OTC 3499N, it is a great little compact scan tool, boots up fast, and processes fast, but does not read the EOT PID.

That is why I am posing questions about the Nemisys to someone who owns one. From what I understand the Nemisys is Bi-Directional as well, so may fit the bill. Haven't ruled out the AutoEnginuity, but if I want something that large to deal with (laptop), I will probably keep using the Modis or Ethos.

Deezal, can you customize the PID's (Parameter Identification is the tech term) to read only one or two together, if you just wanted to read EOT/ECT?

I am assuming so, as my 9001N is less money than a Nemisys and will do so.

Additionally, have you tried to do any functionality testing with it? Injector buzz test, glow plugs, etc?

You can run AE on a netbook if you wanted. You do lose some screen real estate, but that's mainly the info on the very bottom which on the netbooks I have used for it are VIN, make, model, engine etc non-essential unless you are a shop.

Everything that you have listed so far is done by AE and a few other things that you haven't listed yet.

They did have it to where you could use a a PDA to read everything, but their enhanced features got so big and intensive those devices couldn't handle anything above the generic powertrain anymore.

I had considered using a PDA for that since I had one. Also depending on what PIDs you are running at a time, it might be better to use a device that has quicker processing time then those handhelds that I saw a picture of.

Tex you have the AE personally? No down sides? Isn't it only about $350?

How many PID's can you graph simultaneously?

Yes, I have it personally. At most that I have graphed is 9, but you can graph a whole lot more at a time, it just depends on the layout that you use.

$350 is for the base program. That will run the general powertrain for all vehicles up until your latest update supports.

If you go here you can get it with the Ford Enhancement license which will allow you to view all PIDs for all Ford vehicles from 96-current supported Riffraff Diesel: AutoEnginuity Total Ford Enhanced Bundle

That's going to be the cheapest price for it. They do have a domestic bundle that's about $720. I have 4 licenses for mine. Ford, Honda, Nissan, and Toyota. It has paid for itself many times over if nothing else on being able to read trouble codes as most dealers here charge $100 a pop just to pull codes.

I can always use one of my other tools for just pulling codes, etc; but the AE appears to do a great job as far as data logging and graphing, etc.

I am definitely going to consider it.
