Two fast & effective diagnostic tests to find mechanical problems are cranking current and cranking vacuum. Many technicians do not perform these because of old habits, lack of a step-by-step process, or not knowing what to do with the test results.

This class will guide you in finding mechanical problems using easy tests that can be performed in a short time span using tools most shops already have. 

Topics Covered:

  • The basics: disable fuel and set sync probe
  • Cranking current & cranking vacuum testing
  • The step-by-step process on setting up your scope to perform both tests
  • How to interpret the test results and where to go from there
  • Learn the value of piston position charts and engine relationship charts
  • Why go to in-cylinder testing when you don’t have to? 
  • Tips on inexpensive tooling

We will provide you with the know-how to perform these tests and how to interpret the results. With a little practice you will see your testing speed, interpretation efficiency and confidence in finding mechanical problems dramatically increase.
