Measure Car Engine Speed RPM

Measuring your vehicle’s RPM is an insight to many problems and offers a way to diagnose and fix issues with your car.

The easiest way to monitor the RPM speed live is by using an OBD tool. RPM is measured by monitoring the number of revolutions made around the axis within a minute, with an INNOVA OBD tool you can see this speed live in an easy to read format.

Monitor your car statistics in real-time, read volts, RPM and Temperatures from the display. Innova is the leader of live scan tools.

As of 2024, our recommendation would be the Innova 5610.
