ATG Schedule of Classes for March 2018
Posted to Industry Events Forum on 2/11/2018


The Automotive Training Group (ATG) has the following classes available for the month of March 2018. All classes run from 6:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. each night for both evenings, except where indicated below:



This all-new training seminar is the third in our popular Import series. Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) is simple in design but difficult to diagnose because the traditional shortcuts of swapping out parts and disassembling for inspection are not practical. This is why we have adapted ATG's 'High Level Indicator' approach for ruling out possible causes before parts come off. The same approach applies to induction system diagnostics where repair information is vague, component access is difficult, and feedback loops are not always available. For all systems covered, the approach is first universal, and becomes manufacturer-specific only after the possible cause and tool/test lists have been completed and trimmed down. This seminar and manual were built by analyzing actual diagnostic struggles and documenting the shortest diagnostic paths for these systems. Because of this practical approach, you won't be buried in useless engineering detail -- only useful facts that you can measure and that will help guide your diagnostic path. This seminar continues the ATG tradition of saving you diagnostic time.

We're in the 'wasted test prevention' business, and we hope you can attend!

This all-new General Motors training seminar is the latest installment in our Domestic Engine Performance series, with topics arranged to maximize diagnostic efficiency by starting every discussion with 'High Level Indicators'.

You can follow a 4-hour flowchart and fix 80% of the codes and drivability complaints, or you can practice the high level approach to narrow down possible cause lists and sort through what's left in a fraction of the time. Every year General Motors engine management systems become more complex while available system information and diagnostic instructions become more generalized.

This seminar and manual were researched in the shop, and not from published repair information. Using this method, we've developed repeatable GM diagnostics based on actual failure patterns and proven best practices.
