With a conventional camshaft, all the variables that determine valve timing, lift, duration and overlap are cast in stone the moment the lobes are ground. Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) or otherwise known as Variable Valve Timing (VVT) was then developed in order to achieve better overall versatility in a wider RPM range and various operating conditions by phasing the camshaft. Camshaft phasing systems allow the valve timing to be adapted to the respective operating conditions of the engine. With completion of this class technicians can expect to gain a deeper understanding of: •Camshaft foundations and the benefits of Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) •Design and function of many modern VCT systems •Operation of various phaser styles •Special tooling requirements Variable Displacement oil pump technology •Testing of sensors, actuators and mechanical components of the VCT system •Scan tool data analysis and waveform diagnostics

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.

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.

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.

Perhaps it is a technician whose diagnostic abilities are efficient, quick and accurate. Perhaps it is the Service Advisor who deals with difficult customers and always comes away from it with a smile and a sold work order. Or perhaps it is someone else in your life who seems to always come up with great solutions to their problems. How do they do it? One of their secrets of success, perhaps the most important one, is that they have a process for troubleshooting. This process, whether they practice it consciously or unconsciously, allows them to successfully overcome the challenges they face. In this course, The Logical Troubleshooting Process, we are going to examine the elements that drive successful troubleshooting. These elements include: attitude, knowledge and a six-step process for troubleshooting. While our focus is the application of these elements to our professional roles in the automotive service arena, the reality is that you can apply these troubleshooting skills to any area of your life. Note: This course is specifically designed to be attended by Service Advisors, Service Managers and Technicians. 8 hrs, 0 minILTVirtualBrandon Steckler

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 minILTVirtualBrian Ward
