Powertrain Integration, New Eagle finalize engine tool

October 5, 2015 By    

Powertrain Integration Acquisition finalized an agreement with New Eagle of Ann Arbor, Mich., to create PI-DOC, an electronic service tool for its various engines.

According to Powertrain Integration, PI-DOC plugs into vehicle data link connectors to access onboard diagnostic information to perform engine diagnoses, repairs and reprogramming. It can be loaded onto a user’s computer and paired with a security dongle. The tool allows technicians to interact with an engine control module to display basic vehicle data and retrieve sensor inputs.¬†It reads trouble codes that point to causes of vehicle concerns and their remedies.

Powertrain Integration says New Eagle is in the final phases of testing PI-DOC to assure the tool works with the changes New Eagle made to PIthon autogas engines.

According to the company, Powertrain Integration first partnered with New Eagle in 2011 when it developed the 8.0-liter PIthon engine. New Eagle provided the control system for the PIthon engine. Powertrain Integration says the engine entered production last year in Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp.‘s S2G trucks and Thomas Built‘s Saf-T-Liner C2 school buses.
