Loss of seal in the combustion chamber, especially if that loss is intermittent, can be time consuming to diagnose and confirm with traditional testing methods. In addition, volumetric efficiency losses caused by problems like valve timing shifts, improper variable valve timing operation, and restricted Exhausts can also be difficult to nail down. But by using the power of an automotive lab scope and a few accessories, technicians can reduce their troubleshooting time and confirm faults that would otherwise elude them. And that's the topic of this Motor Age/TST webcast featuring guest expert Bernie Thompson of Automotive Test Solutions. Click this link to subscribe to Motor Age! http://bit.ly/MA_YT_freesub
Signal Circuit Integrity Update for my Ebook
This video is mainly for my eBook owners. I would like you to add this
additional information to your book.
How to safely check a sensor signal wire for opens and shorts without
having to disconnect the computer and use an ohmmeter.
basic voltage drop testing for automotive electrical testing
How to use your meter to measure voltage drop in a automotive electrical
circuit. I do diagnostic jobs for many repair shops in my area, and one
thing I see all the time is the misdiagnosis of circuits and parts " hung"
that do not fix anything all due to improper testing.
2010 Subaru 2.5 Variable Valve Lift Solenoid and Switch Testing
This video is a great review of Section 2 "Switch Inputs" and Section 3
"Transistor drivers and Output Solenoids" in my eBook.
On this system the intake valve lift is varied by two different cam lobes.
A low lift lobe and a high lift lobe. I misspoke in the video calling this
a variable valve timing or VTEC mechanism. This system does not vary cam
timing, but it does vary intake valve lift.
Labscope Relative Compression Testing
Sometimes it's very hard to gain access to spark plugs in order to perform
a compression test. Here is how to do a relative compression test with a

Piston and valves inspection with RIGEL video borescope .wmv
New RIGEL video borescope from Medit for all kind of automotive remote
Ultimate articulation and great image quality.
• Ø 5.5mm insertion probe diameter
• 2-way tip Articulation, 180 degrees in each direction. 120 degrees for
3 meter probes in each direction
• 360 degree rotation of the probe on the monitor
Precise visibility is in your hand, with excellent tip articulation and
full circular rotation in this versatile narrow RIGEL video borescope.
The new fast CMOS Video Camera chip (60 fps@AVGA), located in the tip,
provides an exact view of the inspection area.
Four LED lights provide brilliant illumination and even lighting in the
darkest areas. Light intensity is controlled by simple buttons on the
monitor, virtually eliminating over-lighting and glare when inspecting
reflective or metallic surfaces.
The bright, vivid 3.5" monitor provides you with detailed clear images,
making this multipurpose unit highly useful for a wide range of situations.
All live and stored images are displayed in color on the integrated LCD
screen with a resolution of 720x480 pixels.

Once again, Motor Age and TST teamed up to present professional technicians
with a free training resource, this time focusing on air conditioning
service and repair. Live attendees were told about the dangers of
counterfeit refrigerants and how to detect them, and shown new diagnostic
methods including thermal imaging and ultrasound detection.
And hey! Before you bust us on the sound quality...that's rain! This
webinar was shot during a heavy storm!

Scoping Out Drivability: The Trainer video series (Nov 2011)
Diagnosing drivability problems on today's cars presents several challenges
to technicians. Many engine designs are unforgiving of even minor flaws,
and are quick to let their driver's know they aren't happy by bucking,
spitting, and turning on the Check Engine light. Finding these minor
discrepancies takes a trained eye, a little patience, and the right
One such piece of equipment is the Digital Storage Oscilloscope, or DSO.
This modern version of the old big-box engine analyzers many of us grew up
with is capable of much more than simply tracing secondary ignition
patterns. With the addition of a few accessories, it becomes a powerful and
time saving tool that can help you find those minor discrepancies when
other diagnostic techniques will not.
Join technical editor Pete Meier as he shares some of those techniques in
this month's edition of "The Trainer". Click this link to subscribe to
