Designed to give you the skills to troubleshoot
Modern electronic and electrical systems
Day 1 Developing a Diagnostic Game Plan (Critical Thinking Skills): One of the keys to successful diagnostics is having a game plan or procedure that you can follow that will provide you with the solution to the problem. This class teaches a variety of techniques that can be applied to any diagnostic situation. Technicians will be led through a series of case studies that will teach this approach and show how to properly understand the nature of the problem and how best to troubleshoot it.
Day 2 Advanced Lab Scope Operation and Use: This class picks up where the fundamentals lab scope class left off. In this class we will cover such topics as capturing glitches, graphing repeating signals, storing and cataloging waveforms, multi-channel operation, using a sync probe and much more.
Day 3 Fuel Control Systems: Understanding fuel control is vital to being able to diagnose drivability and emission failures. This class covers the different fuel calculating systems used by the various manufacturers and how to use fuel trim and scan data to determine where the problem area is.
Day 4 Ignition Systems: Modern ignition systems are extremely complex and need to be understood thoroughly. In this class, we will cover system operation, inputs and outputs, different ignition system configurations and testing techniques. We will look at both the primary and secondary systems and will use both a lab scope and inductive probe to test the systems.
Day 5 Pressure Transducer Testing: Technicians will learn how to use pressure transducers to test for engine mechanical problems. With modern engines employing variable valve timing and cylinder de-activation conventional test methods such as vacuum and compression gauges no longer give an accurate indication of engine mechanical health. Pressure transducers can be used on the intake manifold or in cylinder to give quick and accurate analysis of the engine mechanical condition. Technicians will be shown how to set up and apply the different tests required for engine analysis.
These classes are for technicians wishing to improve their diagnostic skills. All classes will be a combination of Hands on and Theory. We will be working on live cars and participants are encouraged to bring any problem vehicles they may be working on. Technicians should bring their own equipment.
