PF-Diagnose and Truck Engine Parameters

What is PF-Diagnose? As a brief refresher to those that are not aware, PF-Diagnose is an aftermarket PC based software diagnostic program that works for Heavy Duty Truck, Medium Duty Truck, Light Duty Truck, Automotive, Agricultural, Industrial, and Marine. This simple to use, yet very powerful, diesel diagnostic program will allow you to read engine codes (and get actual OEM flash codes!), view live engine data, clear codes, record snapshots, and much more.
