Length approx. 30 minutes, $9.95 U.S. 0.05 CEU’s awarded This online course covers the symptoms and preliminary diagnostics of a Powerstroke 6.0L diesel truck that has a leaking cylinderhead gasket concern. We will look at different diagnostic tests that can be performed through use of the scan tool to aid in thevalidation of a failed cylinder head gasket. The Powerstroke 6.0L Ford diesel engine has a host of inherent engine design flaws. We will examine many different components of this engine architecture that can create similar symptoms to those you would experience on an application with failed head gaskets. After completing this online course, the student will recognize the correct procedures to: • Diagnose a leaking head gasket on a Ford Powerstroke 6.0L diesel engine • Know what to look for on a 6.0L Ford diesel that has a coolant consumption problem • Access valuable scan tool diagnostic tests to quickly pinpoint engine concerns   Read More

Length approx. 30 minutes, $9.95 U.S.  This online course will cover the steps involved to inspect all of the engine components after the cylinder heads have been removed from the Powerstroke 6.0L diesel engine. We will highlight specific cleaning procedures necessary to prepare the engine parts for inspection. We will discuss procedures involved for checking the cylinder heads and engine block for flatness and straightness. We will perform magnetic particle testing to validate cylinder head casting integrity. We will walk through the steps involved to pressure test the cylinder heads to test for cracks and coolant leak paths. After all these tests are performed we will be able to decide if the parts are able to reinstalled. After completing this online course, the student will recognize the correct procedures to: • Recognize the steps involved to properly clean the engine components prior to reinstallation • Locate areas of concern within the cylinder heads • Pinpoint problematic areas on the engine block • Decide if the engine components will need to go to a machine shop for additional inspection or repair Read More

Length approx. 30 minutes   This online course will examine the service of the cylinder head from the machine shop’s perspective. We will review cylinder head machining practices in order to restore a damaged cylinder head’s surface back to proper condition to be reinstalled. We will address the surface finish requirements necessary for the replacement MLS head gasket to work properly and discuss practices and tooling requirements necessary to achieve it. Surface finish measuring with a profilometer will be demonstrated in video. Valve recession measuring will be overviewed, as this is a critical concern on a diesel engine’s cylinder head.   After completing this online course, the student will recognize the correct procedures to:   • Identify cylinder head surface finish needs before reinstallation of the cylinder head during head gasket service • Understand the machine shop processes used to recondition a cylinder head’s surface • Recognize what to expect as far as service standards from a machine shop Read More

Length approx. 30 minutes This online course will examine the reassembly procedure on the Powerstroke 6.0L diesel engine head gasket replacement. We will explain proper head gasket and cylinder head fastener selections and focus on head torquing procedures required for the repair to be a permanent one. We will define cylinder head clamp load, torque to yield bolts and MLS head gasket construction so that all of the details of proper head gasket installation and torquing can be understood. Procedure and parts selection is everything when it comes to a long-lasting repair on this engine platform.   After completing this online course, the student will recognize the correct procedures to:   • Recognize the importance of cleaning threads and replacing head bolts • Understand the benefits of MLS cylinder head gaskets • Define what torque to yield (TTY) head bolts are and why they need to replaced • Understand bolt torque versus bolt stretch Read More

Length approx. 30 minutes   This online course will discuss the steps involved to tear down the 6.0L Powerstroke engine. Due to the size of the engine and the tight packaging between the frame rails, it is oftentimes easier to remove the cab of the truck when majorly servicing engine components such as cylinder heads. We will discuss the steps involved for this timely procedure while demonstrating some shortcuts along the way. During the teardown process we will also highlight several other key areas of concern on the 6.0L Powerstroke engine.   After completing this online course, the student will recognize the correct procedures to:   • Recognize the steps involved to remove the cylinder heads on the Powerstroke 6.0L engine • Identify areas of concern during the 6.0L diesel engine teardown • Point out telltale signs of a leaking head gasket during component inspection after cylinder head removal Read More

This course will provide an understanding of automotive fuel injection systems. Several topics will be covered including: the benefits of fuel injection systems, the various types of fuel injection systems and their characteristics, and the components used in fuel injection systems. Component locations along with their purposes are discussed. System operation is also covered.   Read More
