The Automotive Training Group has released the 2013 GM Engine Performance 7‐hour course and training manual. Like all ATG products, this new GM Engine Performance class covers all of the newest GM technology, but emphasizes evolving failure patterns on older systems as well. With our tips and intuitive tests, you can quickly differentiate between electronic and mechanical issues plaguing the GM models most likely to come into your shop. Misfire, fuel trim, valve seat issues, cam timing faults and cylinder‐kill system failures can all cause similar symptoms and codes. This seminar helps you make a better ‘first pass’ to look for clues that create the shortest diagnostic path. We’ve been refining these ‘beat the flowchart’ methods for years, so you’ll find something you can use right away.

Other topics include:

• Camshaft Timing Systems

• Drive‐By‐Wire & Displacement On Demand

• Fuel Trim, Rear Fuel Trim & O2 Sensors

• Ignition Systems

• Position Signals & Relationships

• Direct Injection & Conventional Fuel Delivery

• All Emissions Systems

Alternators and Ripple Voltage

The alternator produces an AC current that must be converted into DC current by way of a rectifier.

Alternators have been used to charge the 12V DC electrical systems in vehicles since long before computers and networks were part of the equation. Just a few decades ago, the 12V DC electrical system wasn’t that vulnerable to ripple voltage. Today however, excessive ripple voltage can cause major communication issues across networks and can cause a number of communication DTCs to be set in multiple control modules.
