The course covers petrol direct injection and conventional manifold injected fuel systems.

Integrated Petrol Course

It explains in detail engine management technologies and system control functions.

During the course you will learn about the different engine management sub-systems and system variants.

You will learn how to carry out cost effective diagnosis using the scan tool, oscilloscope and various test instruments in conjunction with wiring diagrams and available technical information from Autodata.

The course covers capturing and analysis of live data, evaluating fault symptoms, how to carry out preliminary checks as well as more in-depth diagnostic tests and explains what to look for.
