Scoping Out Engine Mechanical Faults

For the latest tips and upcoming live online training, sign up for our newsletter! http://www.SearchAutoParts.com/ForTechs 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

Automotive Repair: Electrical Troubleshooting Tips and Techniques with Joe Glassford
For more resources on electrical troubleshooting, join our online community for FREE at http://workshop.search-autoparts.com Diagnosing electrical problems is still the number one toughest job for most techs. In this edition of the popular Motor Age webinar series, "After Hours", technical editor Pete Meier welcomes electrical testing expert Joe Glassford of Vestest.com. Joe shares tips on understanding electrical current paths, what voltage drop is and when it is a good thing versus when it's a bad thing. Testing methods are demonstrated and suggestions for choosing a good meter are mentioned. Click this link to subscribe to Motor Age! http://bit.ly/MA_YT_freesub

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.

Automotive repair: Test Like The Engine Control Module Does
For more tips and other great resources, log on to our community the AutoPro Workshop at http://workshop.search-autoparts.com John Q. Customer comes in complaining that the "Check Engine" light is on. Drivability may or may not be affected depending on why the light is illuminated. When facing this type of repair, consider whom you must really satisfy in order to make the repair successful. The same module that turned the light on in the first place is also the same module that will test the quality of your repair. Even if your human customer can't tell if the repair was correct, you can bet the module can. And it will turn the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) right back on if it isn't happy. So it pays to understand how the ECM performs its system tests, and to use that information when performing diagnostic tests of your own. And that's the topic for this month's edition of The Trainer!

Understanding running compression waveforms
Viewing the pressure waveforms from inside the cylinder of a running engine can provide a great deal of diagnostic information. Understanding these waveforms will help you spot valve issues, blocked catalytic converters and restricted air intakes. The equipment used is a PicoScope automotive oscilloscope and a WPS500 pressure sensor.





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.





No Code Misfire Diagnostic Tips - The Trainer video series (July 2014)
"The car isn't running quite right. It feels a little rough when I'm stopped". Not an uncommon customer complaint, right? Your service advisor brings you the ticket and the keys and you hop in the car to bring it inside. Unfortunately for you, the car appears to run just fine as you let it sit at an idle in the lot. But Lady Luck smiles down on you, and the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) is on. You find a P0300 (Random Misfire) code stored in the Engine Control Module's (ECM's) memory. You also notice the car has some miles on it, and if you're like many of us, you're first instinct is that the car probably needs a "tune up". You pull a plug after you have it in your bay and see that it is worn and seems to have been in there for awhile, so you recommend plugs and wires (just to be on the safe side, right?) and proceed to the next job on your hook. The parts arrive later that afternoon; you install them without any problem and return the car to the customer. Three days later, they're back and they're upset. The car is running the same as it did before. This repair was doomed from the start, wasn't it? Assumptions were made, no testing was done (unless you count pulling the plug) and the repair was never verified. How many potential causes for this kind of complaint are there, and how do you narrow all of them down to the ONE that is the culprit? Isolating the cause of a random or cylinder-specific misfire need not be a fault solved by "seat of the pants" troubleshooting. Following a logical order, applying a few simple techniques and using a little of what God gave you can lead you to a successful repair the first time. And that's the topic of this month's edition of "The Trainer".
