Expands on engine component function and understanding through cylinder head disassembly and evaluation. Engine clean care, proper tune-up procedures and application of service tools is also emphasized.
Emphasizes schematic interpretation with applications towards diagnosis and repair. In depth lighting, gauge, battery, starting and charging systems and their diagnostic strategies will be examined. Through a lab setting, learners will implement meter usage and electrical testing.
Focuses on fuel systems and electronic controls of heavy duty diesel engines. Learners will use proprietary software and logic based fault trees to troubleshoot fault codes. Learners will learn basic operation, troubleshooting and repair of high pressure common rail and unit injected diesel fuel systems.
Focuses on the various components that comprise the heavy duty drive train of heavy duty trucks and tractors. Learners will service and adjust heavy duty clutches. Learners will also review overhaul procedures on axles and differentials, as well as service procedures for driveshaft components.
Examines the basic theory and operation of an HVAC system. Explores system components, functions and tools. Through lab and lecture, we will cover diagnostics and repair, as well as proper refrigerant recovery, recycling and handling procedures. Learners are also introduced to trailer reefer units and their common componentry and operations.
Instructs learners on the fundamentals of heavy duty transmissions. Learners will overhaul manual and automatic shifting transmissions, troubleshoot and repair fully automatic and automatic shifting manual transmissions and read wiring and air schematics.
Focuses on advanced troubleshooting and diagnostics of heavy duty diesel engines. Learners will use proprietary software to troubleshoot fault codes. Diesel exhaust gas return systems, diesel particulate filters and diesel exhaust fluid systems will be discussed. Learners will learn how to read engine schematics for use in troubleshooting and harness repair.
