Part 2 of a 3-part series of courses that will guide Field Managers towards success in their dynamic roles. Read More

This course demonstrates how computers control ignition timing, fuel and air delivery, and emissions. Topics include sensors, ECMs, output devices, closed-loop strategies, and adaptive logic. It focuses on common components and solutions that are employed by all manufacturers to comply with OBD I and OBD II standards. Read More

Workshop Length: 4 hours Tuition: $100.00 U.S. 0.4 CEUs awarded This workshop is designed for the drivability technician. Emphasis is placed on streamlining the process during the diagnostic of an engine misfire. We review scan tool data captured from various types of engine misfire complaints and connect-the-dots to locating the root cause. Several diagnostic tips and strategies are highlighted to help improve anyone’s diagnostic methods. The infamous P0300 DTC (random cylinder misfire code) will no longer elude you after completing this workshop. After completing this workshop, the student will have the knowledge to: Understand and apply tests using in-cylinder pressure transducers, vacuum transducers, and current probes for Misfire diagnosis Interpret valuable scan tool PIDs to aid in diagnosing a Misfire concern Identify PCM strategies that prevent catalytic converter damage due to Type A misfires Differentiate between Fuel, Ignition, and Mechanical Misfires using the scan tool and a lab scope Read More

Workshop Length: 4 hours Tuition: $100.00 U.S. 0.4 CEUs awarded This workshop uses a combination of classroom and hands-on education to keep technicians current on changing Engine Management Systems and diagnostic tools for Asian and Domestic vehicles. The most frequently seen emission based DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) diagnostic routines are reviewed in the classroom and applied in the service bays. The workshop helps technicians become more proficient in interpreting the information the scan tool provides for engine performance diagnostics. We establish a foundation utilizing “strategy based diagnostics” to reduce diagnostic time and prevent Check Engine Light comebacks. We discuss how to interpret Scan Tool information to gain diagnostic direction to repair today’s most seen Engine Performance concerns.   After completing this workshop, the student will have the knowledge to: Review OBD II monitor strategy pertaining to the testing of emission related sensors Evaluate Scan Tool information on emissions/performance related PIDs (Parameter Identification Data) by using the Graphing function of the Scan Tool to ‘trend’ important PID relationships Diagnose emission related Check Engine light problems on vehicles using generic and enhanced Scan Data analysis Five diagnostic checks to perform to before catalytic converter replacement Interpret important Engine Performance sensor information and vehicle operating system strategies Recognize Fuel System monitoring strategies, operation and diagnostic routines Read More
