The purpose of an analytic test drive is simply to gather information. Then once the information you have gathered has been analyzed, you can determine the proper test or tests to perform in order to narrow down the problem to a vehicle system or subsystem and eventually diagnose the root cause of a problem accurately. This class will examine several examples of captured scan data from GDI vehicles. This data will quickly assess the condition of the engine management system, verify correct operation, or find clues that will direct intrusive pinpoint tests efficiently. Whether the problem is DTC driven or symptom driven, a repeatable test drive cycle will determine if the root cause is air (VE) related, fuel related, or adaptive related.4 hrs, 0 minILTVirtualRich Falco

One of the most misconceived ideas of modern vehicles is that they are maintenance free. Although modern vehicles, in some cases, may require much less frequent routine maintenance than older vehicles, they are far from maintenance free. As automotive technology continues to advance, some maintenance services previously required with earlier technology may be eliminated or reduced, however in many cases, maintenance becomes more critical for these advanced systems. Topics in this class include: • Fluid condition inspection and testing • Maintenance intervals • Service practices • Accessory drive systems • Cooling system hardware • Filtration inspection and service • Carbon issues

The Scan Tool Academy series will provide a branching path taking a technician from basic scan tool use, building on a solid foundation, until they achieve power user status. There is ample evidence that basic button pushing classes have not produced the comprehension and comfort that allows a technician to break out of basic functionality. Many shops have invested heavily in scan tools only to have them used primarily as code readers and not much else. This series as a whole does not focus on any one scan tool platform, as our clients own and use many variations of scan tools. We will present scan tool concepts using many of the common scan tool platforms including both multi-line (aftermarket) and manufacturer-specific tools. In Module 1, Practical Application and Analysis, we will: • Introduce a focused, efficient diagnostic routine. • Apply the diagnostic routine to scan tool testing. • Describe how scan tool technology has developed and where it is going. • Explore computer inputs and outputs then compare and contrast what is displayed on a scan tool. • Provide examples of functionality from 10+ scan tool platforms • Using service information to understand the data used to monitor specific vehicle systems, as well as information that may be available through the scan tool. • Cover changes in how Global services work, what has been added and how to use the information to find solutions more efficiently.

Understanding electricity and electrical circuits is becoming the ultimate quest for the future automotive technician. A good electrical foundation is not only a bonus, as in the past, but a necessity in the future. Nothing will solidify the demand for a technician’s skills in the future job market like electrical savvy. Understanding what methods work, what tools are available and what test to perform will make every technician more valuable and profitable for many years to come. Electricity, for the most part, is unseen. We will explore the tools that enable us to visualize what is happening on a circuit. With the right tool, a technician can predict the outcome of a circuit and compare the measurements obtained during testing to the expected values. As simple as that sounds, it gets complicated when how the tool is testing the circuit is not properly understood. In this class, we will explore both normal and faulted circuits and demonstrate proper electrical tool application.

Understanding electricity and electrical circuits is becoming the ultimate quest for the future automotive technician. A good electrical foundation is not only a bonus, as in the past, but a necessity in the future. Nothing will solidify the demand for a technician’s skills in the future job market like electrical savvy. Understanding what methods work, what tools are available and what test to perform will make every technician more valuable and profitable for many years to come. Electricity, for the most part, is unseen. We will explore the tools that enable us to visualize what is happening on a circuit. With the right tool, a technician can predict the outcome of a circuit and compare the measurements obtained during testing to the expected values. As simple as that sounds, it gets complicated when how the tool is testing the circuit is not properly understood. In this class, we will explore both normal and faulted circuits and demonstrate proper electrical tool application.

The Scan Tool Academy series will provide a branching path taking a technician from basic scan tool use, building on a solid foundation, until they achieve power user status. There is ample evidence that basic button pushing classes have not produced the comprehension and comfort that allows a technician to break out of basic functionality. Many shops have invested heavily in scan tools only to have them used primarily as code readers and not much else. This series as a whole does not focus on any one scan tool platform, as our clients own and use many variations of scan tools. We will present scan tool concepts using many of the common scan tool platforms including both multi-line (aftermarket) and manufacturer-specific tools. In Module 1, Practical Application and Analysis, we will: • Introduce a focused, efficient diagnostic routine. • Apply the diagnostic routine to scan tool testing. • Describe how scan tool technology has developed and where it is going. • Explore computer inputs and outputs then compare and contrast what is displayed on a scan tool. • Provide examples of functionality from 10+ scan tool platforms • Using service information to understand the data used to monitor specific vehicle systems, as well as information that may be available through the scan tool. • Cover changes in how Global services work, what has been added and how to use the information to find solutions more efficiently.

The primary goal of each wheel alignment service is to give our customers a safe and reliable vehicle that performs as designed every time. In this class a review of the alignment angles will be covered. This review is focused on what’s important about angles and why we need to check them during every alignment. We will introduce a concept that will help balance the angles in the right relationship, ensuring performance that meets OE standards. The best practice alignment centers around the customer’s expectations. The customer expects their vehicle to receive a complete alignment, and to be made aware of any underlying concerns that may need to be addressed to return their vehicle to proper alignment. The process that is covered in this class is very thorough and insures that the customer receives the technician’s best efforts. As a technician, this practice will be appreciated as it is designed to avoid as many comebacks as possible. It begins with the pre-alignment preliminary inspection of the components, the vehicles driving tendencies and alignment angles. When these angles are not within the preferred specification, an adjustment or solution will be necessary. “Getting it in the green” or “setting the toe and letting it go” are not good enough, as we will discuss in this class.

Since man began to build machines for industrial use, and especially since motors have been used to power them, problems of vibration reduction and isolation have engaged engineers. Gradually, as vibration isolation and reduction techniques have become an integral part of machine design, the need for accurate measurement and analysis of mechanical vibration has grown. Over the last 15 or 20 years a whole new technology of vibration measurement has been developed which is suitable for investigating modern highly stressed, high speed machinery. Using piezoelectric accelerometers to convert vibratory motion into understandable data, the process of measurement and analysis is efficiently performed by the versatile abilities of these electronics. This class will show you how to use modern techniques to identify the vibration source, track the transfer path and pinpoint the responding component.

Restoring the vehicle to proper alignment can be difficult when a technician does not properly understand that there is more to do than setting the angles we are familiar with; caster, camber and toe. For example, a vehicle may have struck a curb and bent a steering knuckle slightly. If the vehicle is returned to within specs without replacing the bent steering knuckle, it may drive okay in a straight line, but produce handling and tire wear issues when cornering. This class explores the more advanced alignment measurements such as vehicle symmetry, steering axis inclination, scrub radius and much more. Throughout this class the technician will gain understanding of many possible underlying issues that result from collision or vehicle alterations, as well as the solutions that are available when adjustments are not provided from the factory. Becoming familiar with all the many functions that modern alignment machines have to offer will make each technician a better alignment specialist.

A test drive is not intended to isolate faults which may be causing a symptom or concern. The purpose of an analytic test drive is simply to gather information. Then once the information you have gathered has been analyzed, you can determine the proper test or tests to perform in order to narrow down the problem to a vehicle system or subsystem and eventually diagnose the root cause of a problem accurately. This class will examine several examples of captured scan data from GDI vehicles. This data will quickly assess the condition of the engine management system, verify correct operation, or find clues that will direct intrusive pinpoint tests efficiently. Whether the problem is DTC driven or symptom driven, a repeatable test drive cycle will determine if the root cause is air (VE) related, fuel related, or adaptive related.

Using piezoelectric accelerometers to convert vibratory motion into understandable data, the process of measurement and analysis is efficiently performed by the versatile abilities of these electronics. This class will show you how to use modern techniques to identify the vibration source, track the transfer path and pinpoint the responding component.

A test drive is not intended to isolate faults which may be causing a symptom or concern. The purpose of an analytic test drive is simply to gather information. Then once the information you have gathered has been analyzed, you can determine the proper test or tests to perform in order to narrow down the problem to a vehicle system or subsystem and eventually diagnose the root cause of a problem accurately. This class will examine several examples of captured scan data from GDI vehicles. This data will quickly assess the condition of the engine management system, verify correct operation, or find clues that will direct intrusive pinpoint tests efficiently. Whether the problem is DTC driven or symptom driven, a repeatable test drive cycle will determine if the root cause is air (VE) related, fuel related, or adaptive related.

Since man began to build machines for industrial use, and especially since motors have been used to power them, problems of vibration reduction and isolation have engaged engineers. Gradually, as vibration isolation and reduction techniques have become an integral part of machine design, the need for accurate measurement and analysis of mechanical vibration has grown. Over the last 15 or 20 years a whole new technology of vibration measurement has been developed which is suitable for investigating modern highly stressed, high speed machinery.
