Misfire issues are one of the top five diagnostic problems technicians encounter. This class delivers testing techniques using a variety of tools to help you diagnose misfires efficiently.

Using actual repair examples, John Thornton will deliver his methods to diagnose misfires caused by:
• Fuel issues
• Spark problems
• Mechanical conditions
• Density Misfires
• Ghost/False Misfires
• Use scan data to identify clues to keep you moving in the right diagnostic direction
• Case studies include Asian, Domestic, and European vehicles.

During the livestream John Thornton did not have time to complete one of the case studies. That case study has been added to the recording, it begins at 4 hours 50 minutes and 47 seconds into it. 

You can rely on information in this class to guide you to the best test for each diagnostic situation and show you how to get good results. Take our diagnostics processes and techniques and use them in your shop.
