DETROIT DIESEL

DD Heavy Duty – Basic Diagnostics – 4 Day Class

In this course the student will be introduced to all the core competencies required for DD engine diagnostics. Key sections include how to gather important service information stored the on DTNA network like Power Service Literature, relating concepts of basic electricity to the DD engine sensor system, detailed usage of the DiagnosticLink electronic service tool, how to program engine controller using DiagnosticLink professional and an overview of using DDEC Reports.

DD Heavy Duty – Major Repair – 5 Day Class

This course covers major repair with emphasis on the systems of the HDEP engine (air, coolant, lube, fuel). As the students disassemble and reassemble the engine they will learn how to properly use Power Service Literature for tasks including how to set the gear train and gear lash, set valve lash and engine brake lash, etc. The course will cover component differences and changes made to HDEP since the S.O.P., (EPA07, EPA10, GHG14 and GHG17) and basic failure analysis of key components.

DD Heavy Duty – Fuel System Diagnostics – 5 Day Class

This course will provide an in depth look at how all the components of the fuel system from the fuel tank to the injector work together on a properly running engine. Based on that knowledge students will then learn how to use the latest electronic service routines and troubleshooting material to diagnose fault code or symptom based issues with the fuel system. The course will cover the evolution of the DD engine fuel system from its initial EPA07 release through the latest GHG17 release.

DD Heavy Duty – Air & Aftertreatment Diagnostics – 5 Day Class

This course is focused on the components, operation and diagnostics of the DD engine’s air and aftertreatment system. On the air system side the course will look at the evolution of the turbocharger and EGR system components over the different DD engine releases. Students will learn the proper operation and diagnostics of air system components (both electronic faults and symptom based issues). The ATS system will include a detailed study of the DOC and DPF filters, their related sensors and the all aspects of the regeneration process. The SCR system will be covered by examining the major components of both the air-assisted system (EPA10) and the liquid only system (GHG14 and GHG17). Students will study ATS diagnostic procedures both fault code and symptom based issues with a combination of log file analysis and hands-on exercises.
