No gauges but factory (incl. trans temp & volt) & now torque app
EGT will be added but not anytime soon
Would you set alarm points for the EBP, ICP, IPW if so what would they be?

Just interested in 6 cause they are easy to view on one screen.
Preparing for my first camper pull with this vehicle and will not be fiddling with the tablet.
But do want to keep an eye out for poss issues...

Thanks!

I wouldn't set alarm points for any of the things you mentioned, as there are no real "bad" values for any of them, or at least none you're likely to see in the wild. I use them primarily for learning.

The voltmeter and tranny temp gauge on your dash are worse than worthless, as they pretend to display relevant values, but don't. Your voltmeter needle may as well be painted on the dash, and your tranny has gotten hotter than you want it to be well before the tranny temp gauge moves off its normal settings.

Your torque converter is slipping, I usually get a reading of 0 or 1.

Your EBP reading is confusing. The best I can come up with is Pascals X 100

I updated the EBP PID formula to read actual PSI, after this screen shot was taken.

From all the screen shots available from other users on the other forums, mine looks like everyone elses?

Those are stock numbers on a healthy truck.

The TC slip is not being picky. If you have that while cruising, I'd be throwing spare change and dollar bills in a jar for a transmission in the future (no rush).

Would a fluid flush make any improvements? It is on my to-do list. Since i mainly use the truck to pull my 28' enclosed, and i've only got to race 3 times since buying this truck, the tranny flush will be on order before next race season

I know very little about transmissions, but I know slip = heat = wear. Maintaining the transmission is always good, so that's a good place to start... then check your slip again.

Is there a thread/discussion anywhere that shows typical/normal readings for all the gauges?
Should there be no converter slip towing?
Thanks

It shouldn't slip when it's supposed to be locked, but are you certain yours was supposed to be locked when that screen shot was taken? If the difference in speed between the torque converter and input shaft really reached 2145rpm when the TC was locked, I think you'd know. Your tranny temp sure wouldn't stay 128*F for long if that was the case.

Be careful putting too much stock in Torque without verifying the values with a better tool. You can edit the Torque formulas to produce any value you want, and some of the Ford-specific ones were wrong right out of the box.

My guess is you have no problem, but no one on here can tell you if you do or don't, based solely on the data from that screen.

its been too long since i ran that to remember what gear i was in when the screen shot was taken, i'm pretty sure it was in 4th @ WOT. The 2145rpm was taken while the truck was stopped at a stop sign. Normal driving 60-70 mph the TC slip shows around 0-30rpm of slip.

Which PIDS are wrong? I know the EBP is, i've corrected the forumula to register true PSI, but i was unaware of any others being wrong.

ScaldedDog was referring to anything that tries to register actual torque... if I am catching his meaning correctly. "Toque Pro" software implies it will read just that... prompting anyone with experience to say "A torque meter? From OBDII data? Pshaw."

The screen I looked at showed a 12 RPM slip, with the hi/lo readings below it. I know from my experience with AE that the only time you'll see a slip reading that low is in TCLU... but it really should be zero (plus or minus 1 or 2 for error). That would be what I call a lock-up with the drive shaft.

Rich, I don't understand your comment about mine.

Jhobbs, see if you can find another of my posts on the subject. It was one of the temp formulas, but I don't remember which on. Also, see if you can monitor the status of the TC solenoid in Torque.
