Parts Plus University – Professional Training Series

GM 2010+ Duramax Operations & Diagnostics

During this course we will discuss in detail late model GM Duramax engines. Although the models presented will apply to 2010 & newer Duramax engines with full emission controls, much of the material can be applied to earlier years. After a quick update on relevant mechanical and cooling system enhancements, the air intake system will be discussed with emphasis on the variable output turbocharger design, operation, control and service. Cold starting systems will be covered. Both low and high pressure fuel systems will be described as well as injectors and pressure control. Injector and fuel system lab scope patterns will be analyzed and quick diagnostic tips will be shared. Late model Duramax diesel engines are equipped with full emission controls therefore EGR, Closed Crankcase Ventilation, Diesel Particulate Filter and DEF systems will be covered in detail from a ‘practical’ service perspective. Pattern failures, scope diagnostics, scan tool data and procedures will be included throughout the course.

SMP – Automotive Technical Clinics

Whole Vehicle Diagnostics

In order to serve their customers well, today’s technicians need to be ready to deal with any problem that comes to the shop. The customer only knows that the vehicle doesn’t feel right, drive right, or there is a light on. It is up to the technician to identify which system is causing the fault and affect a repair. It could be a transmission shift concern, an ABS fault, or a simple misfire. Technicians need to be ready and have a diagnostic plan. We will explore each topic as we work through real world case studies from the field.
