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

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





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 Aerio 2.0,





ETCG and ScannerDanner Solve A Misfire (Part 1) - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Visit Rosedale at http://www.rosedaletech.org/ 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.

Electrical Troubleshooting Basics - EricTheCarGuy
Electrical Troubleshooting Basics - EricTheCarGuy I get a lot of questions regarding electrical issues so when this 1994 Geo came in I thought it might be a perfect opportunity to show some of the basic steps that I follow when confronted with an electrical problem. Keep in mind that electrical problems come in all shapes and sizes so there really is no 'magic bullet' here but if you follow a basic procedure like the one shown in this video it might help you find and repair the problem. Here is a video that I did some time ago on soldering wires.

A fuse that keeps on blowing is an active problem and can be difficult to find. However if you use these steps, you should be able to locate and repair it.





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.

What's New (And Not So New) In A/C Service And Repair
As part of our "Salute To The Military" theme for May, we journeyed to the home of Central Command, MacDill AFB, in Tampa FL and hung out with the airmen (and women!) charged with keeping the base mobile. The topic? A/C servicing best practices and a recap of the latest news impacting the a/c service field.
