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

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.

OTC #3857 TECH-SCOPE Introduction
The OTC Tech-ScopeTM is a standalone two-channel high-speed lab scope and
ignition oscilloscope with multimeter that allows service technicians to
quickly and efficiently test and measure virtually all of the electrical
and electronic components and circuits in a modern vehicle. The tool
features galvanic isolation not found on automotive scopes for hardware
protection and includes an ignition scope and a digital multimeter with an
The Tech-ScopeTM is capable of reading 40 million samples per second on
each channel with 10M ohm input impedance—eliminating the need for
special adapters to capture signals from critical components. The included
InfoTech software provides a vehicle-specific repair information database
for testing most common vehicle components with step-by-step test
procedures using a lab scope or multimeter.
Electrical Testing and Troubleshooting Tips With Vince Fischelli
In this edition of "In The Workshop", Motor Age technical editor sits down
with Vince Fischelli, president of Veejer Enterprises in Garland, Texas.
Vince is a nationally recognized expert in automotive electrical
troubleshooting techniques and has made learning them at home easy to do
with his easy-to-use test boards. Learn how three simple measurements will
quickly lead you to the problem area and how Vince's training method can

How to check for a jumped timing chain or belt
This video can be used to support Section 1 pages 17-23 in my ebook.
The method of timing verification shown in this video can be used on any
car. Even on old school, non-computer controlled systems. I am also showing
in this video how to properly align the timing chains on a 2003 Suzuki
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
Quick Tips for Evap Repairs
Global Leak Detection and TST present this seminar that is about how to
diagnose EVAP problems fast with a scan tool and a smoke machine. You can
use any scan tool and any OEM approved smoke machine such as a Smoke
Wizard, Bosch, OTC, MAC, and Snap On.
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

Diagnosing electrical faults is arguably the toughest task most technicians
face. Reliance on simple voltage tests with a traditional test light or
multimeter and/or checking component or circuit integrity statically with
an ohmmeter often allows a fault to go undetected, frustrating techs even
As contributing editor and educator Joe Glassford shares in his June 2012
feature on this same topic, "Think current path, not circuit path". Current
is what makes an electrical component work. If there are problems in the
current path, the current supply to the component will be less than it
should be, causing the component to work poorly or not at all.
Voltage drop testing is one answer to finding those problems quickly and
The testing method itself is simple. It's understanding what the results
are telling you that tends to throw off those new to the testing method.
In this month's edition of the How2 video series, "The Trainer", Motor Age
technical editor Pete Meier gives you an explanation of what voltage drop
testing is, how to perform the test on common circuits, and tips on
understanding the test results. Click this link to subscribe to Motor Age!
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.
