    software that tells cylinder info?

    I just got a device from Odbpros - Works excellant, great service by the way
    now I am wondering if there is any software (Preferably freebie) that will tell me info on all 6 cylinders.
    ex. how many times they all have misfired and such

    I just want to let everyone that I did search before hand, but being a newbie at this I maybe searching the terms.

    Can anyone tell me if AutoTab will work with ODBPRO?
    If so, can you just buy there software?

    Not ignoring... just missed seeing this one before.

    Are there specific vehicles you are interested in? This capability is not standard OBD II as far as I know, but most cars should have a proprietary message to get this data and given the model someone might be able to provide the message.

    AutoTap software only works with their hardware and you should probably check with autotap to ensure that your particular vehicle will provide the info that you are after.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply Mitch. I have a 97" S10, 4.3L Vin Code X, 4x4
    I'm still hunting around for software that will tell me more info than the handfull of freebies that I've seen.
    The weird thing is, with all the software I have tested, several things don't get a reading. Is there some kind of PID specific thing I need to do?
    Anyway, back to my original quesion. What other software out there tells details about cylinders? I'm mostly concerned about the history of the cyclinders. It would be great to know if for example, cylinder #2 was misfiring 10x more than the rest.
