Transmission In-Car Diagnostics

Whether you’re a transmission specialist or not, you share a common problem – how to efficiently diagnose the root cause of a transmission code or complaint in a reasonable time. This is even more important for modern, integrated drivetrains where driveability problems are often transmission-related, and transmission complaints often end up being engine-related. That’s why we’re bringing the strategies we’ve learned from emissions and driveability diagnostics into the world of automatic transmissions. Our focused, repeatable strategy allows you to more quickly find the fault while taking apart the fewest components. *Quickly differentiate between transmission, engine mechanical, engine management, suspension & other possible causes.*Use application charts to map out power flow to determine what components are being used under fault conditions. *More effectively test sensors, switches & solenoids under loaded conditions. *Leverage Scan Tool PIDs & functions to eliminate the most possible causes. We’re not trying to teach anyone how to rebuild transmissions – transmission techs already know how, and know that it’s a specialty you need to dedicate considerable time to learning. But all technicians will benefit from diagnosing better and faster. The specialist will use that diagnosis differently than the non-specialist, but whether you end up repairing, rebuilding, subletting, or replacing, ‘fast and accurate’ is better than ‘time-consuming’ and ‘I think it needs.’ We’ve included dozens of real-world examples to prove the point. We’re confident that this seminar is exactly what is needed to make you a lot more successful at diagnosing transmissions, whether you rebuild them every day or haven’t ever had one apart.
