This eLearning course examines strategies for properly diagnosing and servicing the engine cooling system. Upon completion of this course, you’ll be able to identify symptoms of engine cooling failures, perform a visual inspection of the cooling system and diagnose cooling system concerns using available tools and tests. You’ll also learn the steps involved to repair and replace engine cooling system components and learn the steps involved to test, diagnose, exchange, flush and bleed coolant. A demonstration of the air purging process along with safety precautions is also provided.   Read More

This short five-minute module is designed to help you navigate and understand the changing emissions regulations. Includes the step-by-step process to identify the correct catalytic converter for the vehicle depending on whether the vehicle is California emissions, CARB certified or EPA emissions certified. This course also discusses current regulations for the state of California and New York. Read More

Workshop Length: 1 day (8 hours) $200.00 U.S. 0.8 CEUs awarded This workshop will focus on the different types of variable valve timing (VVT) systems used by vehicle manufacturers today. After multi- valve technology became standard in engine design, VVT became the next step to enhance engine output, increasing engine power and torque output along with reducing emissions. Without VVT technology, engineers previously had to choose the best compromise   in valve/cam timing and ended up sacrificing one thing to gain in another area. VVT allows the best of both worlds – increased performance and economy and lower emissions. There are a multitude of DTCs that can set related to VVT faults stemming from oil contamination to inoperative cam actuators and oil control solenoids. We explain the variations of VVT systems used by manufacturers today and look at diagnostic tests that can be performed on this system using the scan tool and other diagnostic equipment to confidently diagnose these systems before the costly and labor-intensive engine teardown for service.   After completing this workshop, the student will have the knowledge to: Identify the VVT system types used by manufacturers Relate to the scan tool parameters used by various manufacturers to validate camshaft control and operation Understand the VVT DTC stored in the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Realize the importance of testing the crankshaft position and camshaft position sensors via a lab scope to validate camshaft to crankshaft correlation Perform mechanical engine testing and diagnosis using electronic pressure transducers Diagnose engine breathing related faults (both intake and exhaust) using fuel trim and volumetric efficiency testing information via the scan tool Utilize new scan tool information and techniques to reduce diagnostic time in the service bay for VVT related faults or symptoms< Read More

This course provides an introduction to the skills and knowledge needed to diagnose trouble codes/DTCs to repair concerns related to emissions and drivability on vehicles equipped with an Onboard Diagnostics engine management system. Read More
