03/30/2020 06:30 PM - 10:30 PM 03/31/2020 06:30 PM - 10:30 PM DVT-3000-8 / Transmission Diagnostics for the Engine Technician The modern transmission can be very difficult to diagnose properly without an understanding of the wide range of inputs and strategies that make up transmission control. Diagnostic analysis of the transmission must take into consideration the mechanical aspects of the transmission, as well as the electrical, hydraulic and engine control influences. Many transmissions have been unnecessarily replaced when testing routines skip one of these factors and many repeated transmission component failures have occurred when the root cause of mechanical failure was not determined during the initial diagnosis. Some OBD II technicians may say, “That’s why I stay away from transmissions, I have enough to worry about with the engine drivability problems.” Many transmission technicians would also say the very opposite, however, the engine and transmission inputs and software strategies tend to overlap at a much higher level than ever before to control emissions, torque and driving experience. In order to be successful in either case, the blending of emissions control and driving experience forces both the engine drivability technician and the transmission technician to cross the long-time established border line between the two repair fields.8 hrs, 0 minILTComfort Inn Barrie Essa , Barrie, ON, 0Scott Weatherall

L’analyse diagnostique de la transmission doit tenir compte des aspects mécaniques de la transmission ainsi que des influences électriques, hydrauliques et des influences des commandes du moteur. L’omission d’un de ces éléments est souvent responsable du remplacement inutile de la transmission. Il arrive également que la défaillance à répétition d’un composant de transmission soit attribuable à un problème mécanique qui n’a pas été identifié lors du diagnostic initial. Certains techniciens OBD-II disent « C’est pour cette raison que je ne travaille pas sur les transmissions; j’ai assez de soucis avec les problèmes de conduite du moteur ». Les techniciens spécialistes de la transmission disent le contraire, bien que les données d’entrée et stratégies logicielles du moteur et de la transmission soient similaires pour le contrôle des émissions, le couple et l’expérience de conduite. Pour un bon diagnostic, tous techniciens confondus, il faut combiner le contrôle des émissions et l’expérience de conduite.8 hrs, 0 minILTEglise St Rodrigue, Charlesbourg, QC, 0Herman Chabot

L’analyse diagnostique de la transmission doit tenir compte des aspects mécaniques de la transmission ainsi que des influences électriques, hydrauliques et des influences des commandes du moteur. L’omission d’un de ces éléments est souvent responsable du remplacement inutile de la transmission. Il arrive également que la défaillance à répétition d’un composant de transmission soit attribuable à un problème mécanique qui n’a pas été identifié lors du diagnostic initial. Certains techniciens OBD-II disent « C’est pour cette raison que je ne travaille pas sur les transmissions; j’ai assez de soucis avec les problèmes de conduite du moteur ». Les techniciens spécialistes de la transmission disent le contraire, bien que les données d’entrée et stratégies logicielles du moteur et de la transmission soient similaires pour le contrôle des émissions, le couple et l’expérience de conduite. Pour un bon diagnostic, tous techniciens confondus, il faut combiner le contrôle des émissions et l’expérience de conduite.8 hrs, 0 minILTEcole Paul Hubert, Rimouski, QC, 0Herman Chabot

Diagnostic analysis of the transmission must take into consideration the mechanical aspects of the transmission, as well as the electrical, hydraulic and engine control influences. Many transmissions have been unnecessarily replaced when testing routines skip one of these factors and many repeated transmission component failures have occurred when the root cause of mechanical failure was not determined during the initial diagnosis. Some OBD II technicians may say, “That’s why I stay away from transmissions, I have enough to worry about with the engine drivability problems.” Many transmission technicians would also say the very opposite, however, the engine and transmission inputs and software strategies tend to overlap at a much higher level than ever before to control emissions, torque and driving experience. In order to be successful in either case, the blending of emissions control and driving experience forces both the engine drivability technician and the transmission technician to cross the long-time established border line between the two repair fields.8 hrs, 0 minILTBluewater Hall, Sarnia, ON, 0Lary Goudge

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.4 hrs, 0 minILT35 Fruitland Rd, Hendersonville, NC, 28792David Patrick

Diagnostic analysis of the transmission must take into consideration the mechanical aspects of the transmission, as well as the electrical, hydraulic and engine control influences. Many transmissions have been unnecessarily replaced when testing routines skip one of these factors and many repeated transmission component failures have occurred when the root cause of mechanical failure was not determined during the initial diagnosis. Some OBD II technicians may say, “That’s why I stay away from transmissions, I have enough to worry about with the engine drivability problems.” Many transmission technicians would also say the very opposite, however, the engine and transmission inputs and software strategies tend to overlap at a much higher level than ever before to control emissions, torque and driving experience. In order to be successful in either case, the blending of emissions control and driving experience forces both the engine drivability technician and the transmission technician to cross the long-time established border line between the two repair fields.8 hrs, 0 minILT4602 SE Delaware Ave., Des Moines, IA, 50312Kevin Leiby

Diagnostic analysis of the transmission must take into consideration the mechanical aspects of the transmission, as well as the electrical, hydraulic and engine control influences. Many transmissions have been unnecessarily replaced when testing routines skip one of these factors and many repeated transmission component failures have occurred when the root cause of mechanical failure was not determined during the initial diagnosis. Some OBD II technicians may say, “That’s why I stay away from transmissions, I have enough to worry about with the engine drivability problems.” Many transmission technicians would also say the very opposite, however, the engine and transmission inputs and software strategies tend to overlap at a much higher level than ever before to control emissions, torque and driving experience. In order to be successful in either case, the blending of emissions control and driving experience forces both the engine drivability technician and the transmission technician to cross the long-time established border line between the two repair fields.8 hrs, 0 minILT2357 Chester Blvd., Richmond, IN, 47374Kevin Leiby

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. 8 hrs, 0 minILT99 Thomas Nelson Dr., Hampton, VA, 23666Brandon Steckler

Diagnostic analysis of the transmission must take into consideration the mechanical aspects of the transmission, as well as the electrical, hydraulic and engine control influences. Many transmissions have been unnecessarily replaced when testing routines skip one of these factors and many repeated transmission component failures have occurred when the root cause of mechanical failure was not determined during the initial diagnosis. Some OBD II technicians may say, “That’s why I stay away from transmissions, I have enough to worry about with the engine drivability problems.” Many transmission technicians would also say the very opposite, however, the engine and transmission inputs and software strategies tend to overlap at a much higher level than ever before to control emissions, torque and driving experience.

08/05/2020 06:00 PM - 02:00 AM STA-2505-8 / Scan Tool Academy Practical Application & Analysis 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. 8 hrs, 0 minILT51 Mannakee St., Rockville, MD, 20850Brandon Steckler

Diagnostic analysis of the transmission must take into consideration the mechanical aspects of the transmission, as well as the electrical, hydraulic and engine control influences. Many transmissions have been unnecessarily replaced when testing routines skip one of these factors and many repeated transmission component failures have occurred when the root cause of mechanical failure was not determined during the initial diagnosis. Some OBD II technicians may say, “That’s why I stay away from transmissions, I have enough to worry about with the engine drivability problems.” Many transmission technicians would also say the very opposite, however, the engine and transmission inputs and software strategies tend to overlap at a much higher level than ever before to control emissions, torque and driving experience. In order to be successful in either case, the blending of emissions control and driving experience forces both the engine drivability technician and the transmission technician to cross the long-time established border line between the two repair fields.8 hrs, 0 minILT8800 O Street, Lincoln, NE, 68520Kevin Leiby

Diagnostic analysis of the transmission must take into consideration the mechanical aspects of the transmission, as well as the electrical, hydraulic and engine control influences. Many transmissions have been unnecessarily replaced when testing routines skip one of these factors and many repeated transmission component failures have occurred when the root cause of mechanical failure was not determined during the initial diagnosis. Some OBD II technicians may say, “That’s why I stay away from transmissions, I have enough to worry about with the engine drivability problems.” Many transmission technicians would also say the very opposite, however, the engine and transmission inputs and software strategies tend to overlap at a much higher level than ever before to control emissions, torque and driving experience. In order to be successful in either case, the blending of emissions control and driving experience forces both the engine drivability technician and the transmission technician to cross the long-time established border line between the two repair fields.8 hrs, 0 minILT3710 W Dublin Granville Road, Columbus, OH, 43235Kevin Leiby

Diagnostic analysis of the transmission must take into consideration the mechanical aspects of the transmission, as well as the electrical, hydraulic and engine control influences. Many transmissions have been unnecessarily replaced when testing routines skip one of these factors and many repeated transmission component failures have occurred when the root cause of mechanical failure was not determined during the initial diagnosis. Some OBD II technicians may say, “That’s why I stay away from transmissions, I have enough to worry about with the engine drivability problems.” Many transmission technicians would also say the very opposite, however, the engine and transmission inputs and software strategies tend to overlap at a much higher level than ever before to control emissions, torque and driving experience. In order to be successful in either case, the blending of emissions control and driving experience forces both the engine drivability technician and the transmission technician to cross the long-time established border line between the two repair fields.8 hrs, 0 minILT14591 Stony Brook, Omaha, NE, 68137Kevin Leiby

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.8 hrs, 0 minILT2703 Jewett Ave., Highland , IN, 46322Louie Nelson

Diagnostic analysis of the transmission must take into consideration the mechanical aspects of the transmission, as well as the electrical, hydraulic and engine control influences. Many transmissions have been unnecessarily replaced when testing routines skip one of these factors and many repeated transmission component failures have occurred when the root cause of mechanical failure was not determined during the initial diagnosis. Some OBD II technicians may say, “That’s why I stay away from transmissions, I have enough to worry about with the engine drivability problems.” Many transmission technicians would also say the very opposite, however, the engine and transmission inputs and software strategies tend to overlap at a much higher level than ever before to control emissions, torque and driving experience. In order to be successful in either case, the blending of emissions control and driving experience forces both the engine drivability technician and the transmission technician to cross the long-time established border line between the two repair fields.8 hrs, 0 minILT5200 Monticello Road, Jefferson City, MO, 65109Kevin Leiby
