Workshop Length: 4 hours Tuition: $200.00 U.S. 0.4 CEUs awarded This workshop enhances the skills of the professional undercar technician in the areas of operation and diagnosis on electronically controlled suspension systems. We discuss techniques and procedures to replace, set up and calibrate suspension components, such as height sensors and electronic shocks and air springs, on vehicles with ECS (Electronically Controlled Suspension). Vehicle diagnostic strategies revolving around ride quality and handling issues are the focus. Air and Nitrogen suspension operation is discussed. Proven diagnostic strategies that address Service Suspension lights and vehicle stability concerns are discussed. After completing this workshop, the student will have the knowledge to: • Apply diagnostic tests to vehicles with ECS (Electronically Controlled Suspensions) • Validate performance of suspension components on ECS equipped vehicles • Understand scan tool data that identifies inputs and outputs on electronically controlled suspension equipped vehicles • Identify different types of failed components on ECS (Electronically Controlled Suspension) equipped vehicles Read More

This eLearning course explains the five exhaust gases (HC, CO, O2, CO2 and NOx), how each is formed, and the relationship between the gases. Emission control system operation is discussed including positive crankcase ventilation, catalytic converters, EGR, VVT, air injection, evaporative emissions, and more. Basic diagnostic methods are explained for each system and learning checks are used to reinforce the concepts. This course also covers theory and operations of the catalytic converter as well as identifies a testing process to avoid replacing a good component.   Read More
