A/C Service Equipment: We’ve Got It Good These Days

The world of A/C service has changed over the years. New tools and equipment make the job easier than ever.

High-Pressure GDI Fuel Pumps

When solving a fuel pump issue, the scan tool is your best friend.

Fuel Tank Contamination

A number of things can cause a fuel filter to plug up.

Inspecting Oil Filters

Cartridge oil filters are easy to inspect, but canister oil filters only give you a limited view.

Oxygen Sensors And Catalyst Efficiency

Newer air/fuel ratio or wide-band sensors can detect a wide range of fuel conditions.

Gasoline Direct Injection Is Better, But Not Perfect

GDI technology has improved but drivers could face problems if they don’t keep up with maintenance.

Fuel Pressure Diagnostic Service

Use a scan tool that can look at special direct fuel injection parameters and perform bidirectional tests.

Auxiliary Coolant Pumps

Don’t be fooled into thinking that these pumps will go away with the surge in hybrid and electric vehicle production.

Fuel Tanks and Pumps

The behavior of the fuel wells, pumps & sending units are often misdiagnosed, leading to fuel pumps being replaced.

Drivability Issues Fuel Trim Diagnostics

No code diagnostics are some of the most challenging drivability issues.

Seasonal Fuel Blends

The cause of the misfires is the temperature fuel evaporates, otherwise known as the volatility.

Diesel Fuel Injectors

The purpose of common rail injection is to deliver high-pressure fuel to the injector.
