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
Voltage Drop Essentials - TST & Motor Age
G Truglia (TST) and Peter Meier (Motor Age) cover all the essentials of
using the meter, especially voltage drop testing. This training class has
been made free thanks tot he efforts of Motor Age and TST (an automotive
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.

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.

To say I enjoyed making this video would be something of an understatement,
Paul Danner is a great teacher and he has some great diagnostic tools in
his class that are a lot of fun to play with, watch us as we go through the
process of diagnosing this Chevy pick up with a misfire, I think you'll be
surprised at what we find and how we find it.
Also check out ScannerDanners book on diagnosis, in a word it's awesome.

Testing Engines with a Labscope
This is not a class on old-school engine diagnosis. The compression gauge
takes too much time to use. Using a labscope, easily diagnose a bad
cylinder and timing issues using relative compression and pressure
transducers. Extensive use of the Picoscope is covered.
Pete Meier of Motor Age, G "Jerry" Truglia of TST, and Bernie Thompson of
ATS all contribute to this presentation.
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.
2003 Pontiac Vibe 1.8L Misfire, Rough Idle (Part 1)
This is a Toyota engine in this car and apparently is known for injector
problems. In this video I cover the following:
1. How to do an injector balance test with a timer tool.
2. How to monitor injector flow with a pressure transducer connected to the
fuel rail using a Picoscope
3. Using fuel trim for direction
4. How to use fuel trim numbers at different RPMs

Labscope testing a cooling fan motor
If you suspect the cooling fan motor is bad, you can use your labscope to
confrim it just like you would a fuel pump. After all, they are both
electric motors. All you have to do is isolate the circuit and use a low
amp current probe.
Electrical Testing Shortcuts with Vince Fischelli: Part One (Battery Testing)
Motor Age is pleased to once again have Vince Fischelli as a guest on "In
The Workshop". In part one, Vince shares tips on battery testing using just
a digital multimeter and high amp current clamp.
This is just a sample of the techniques Vince has to share in his 250 page
book, "Electrical Troubleshooting Shortcuts". According to Vince, a trained
tech can successfully troubleshoot and repair ANY electrical problem with
just two tools and he shows you how in this book.
For more info on the book or on the other resources Vince has for you,
including hands-on training at his Dallas facility, visit his website at
