So long story short it looks like one of these will work with your car:
Thats a very generous offer-thanks for the help. I'm going to do a writeup on the wiki for some more general info and a how to contribute section/to do list. I'll post a link back when i'm done.
I saw that thread awhile ago and forgot about it...i'll see if he minds if we use that data. Good call

When you get further along on this feel free to take any code from OBDMPG if you wish. It's all in VB6 but should be easy to move into C#. I'd pitch in myself, but I'm not all that familiar with C# and have about zero extra time these days. Just letting you know the source is there for the taking.
The general idea is you use a fusion brain with sensors you shove in your engine, then run tripzero's fbd and my obdsim dbus generato.i am running ubuntu 9.04, but looking at all the threads in regards to obd1, i am finding that this is all over my head. Perhaps I will just wait until i have a post '96 vehicle. Although I really want a Fusion Brain...stupid money, or lack there of
By the end of the pipeline you have an entry in /dev that presents itself as if it were a regular serial ELM327 device.
OBD part is about 90% done but thanks for the offer
ws6vert (and hopefully others):
Wiki has been updated with hopefully some useful info.
Particularly the vin stuff:
and submitting Data to the project:
Manufacturer info for all the manufacturers is now in the database...this means we can now detect vehicle manufacturer and manufacturer specific codes needed. Model info is still lacking though.
Can you post an example excel file for the OBD information on the wiki? That will make it a little easier for others to understand and help.
My question: Under the VIN column, do you want an actual VIN of an actual car?
The Vin column contains only the Vin digits that represent the model number:
So listed here you see each manufacturer and what digits means what.
For example with GM-digits 4, 5 and 6 represent the model number. So if we take this example VIN (happens to be a Hummer) 5GRGN22U57HXXXXXX
the VIN column should contain "GN2"
and the best part is if we look in the docs (on page 2): http://service.gm.com/dealerworld/vi.../vincard07.pdf
you see that vin code G means it weighs 8-9000lbs and vin code N2 Corresponds to a Hummer h2.
