Duration: 8 hrs

Type: ILT

Class Code: DVT-3000-8VC

Instructor: Tom Smith

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.

Duration: 4 hrs

Type: ILT

Class Code: EET-6000-4VC

Instructor: Adam Robertson

This class coves modern vehicle network operation and how to efficiently diagnose them using common tooling. The overwhelming majority of network related issues do not require decoding of individual packets of data. It is important to understand how a network exchanges information, but a deep dive into the bits. bytes, nibbles and ticks of each network is not needed to repair the vehicle. Knowledge of the network type, the expected voltage levels, and the layout of the network wiring to the modules can provide us with enough information to gain diagnostic direction. At that point, we can use our available tooling to determine the root cause of the problem. Topics Include: • Understanding common automotive networks and where to get help if we don’t understand them • Discuss OE and aftermarket scan tool communication benefits and challenges • Developing a logical diagnostic approach using service information and our own tooling • Understanding diagnosis through communication related case studies

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.

Instructor: Joe Smith

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.

Location: Virtual

Duration: 4 hrs

Type: ILT

Class Code: CHS-5000-4VC

Instructor: Andrew Gibson

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.

Conquering Network Diagnostics

Sessions: 10/16/2024 | 8AM - | 12PM EST

Location: 6521 Orr Rd, Charlotte, NC, 28213

Duration: 4 hrs

Type: ILT

Class Code: EET-6000-4

Instructor: David Patrick

This class covers modern vehicle network operation and how to efficiently diagnose them using common tooling. The overwhelming majority of network related issues do not require decoding of individual packets of data. It is important to understand how a network exchanges information, but a deep dive into the bits. bytes, nibbles and ticks of each network is not needed to repair the vehicle. Knowledge of the network type, the expected voltage levels, and the layout of the network wiring to the modules can provide us with enough information to gain diagnostic direction. At that point, we can use our available tooling to determine the root cause of the problem. Topics Include: • Understanding common automotive networks and where to get help if we don’t understand them • Discuss OE and aftermarket scan tool communication benefits and challenges • Learn how to develop a logical diagnostic approach using service information and our own tooling • Understand diagnosis through communication related case studies
