LBT-416 Talking Trucks – What You Need to Know About Diesel Fuels



This class, “Talking Trucks – What You Need to Know About Diesel Fuels,” is a must-attend for anyone servicing diesel fuel systems. Is a diesel fuel concern causing repeat comebacks to your shop? How many pumps and injectors does it take to repair a problem caused by the fuel? Is the diesel in the fuel tank contaminated? This course will cover proper diesel fuel testing and diagnostics your shop can perform at a very reasonable cost. Presented by ASE Master Technician Tom Rayk, the class will educate on validating fuel conditions before checking all aspects of the fuel delivery system, reviewing concerns on lift pumps, gear pumps, and high-pressure pumps. Step by step diesel system testing, diagnostics, and repairs will be demonstrated and discussed, teaching the technician methods to test all diesel fuel systems.
