Common Rail is now the most common fuel system in diesel vehicles. Deeper knowledge of how common rail fuel system technology works across vehicle makes and system manufacturers is a big advantage when it comes to troubleshooting.
COVERED IN THIS COURSE
Timing of injection and conditions for starting the engine
Developments in European emission standards and diesel fuel
Low-pressure system components
High-pressure system components
Injection pressure adjustment
Troubleshooting issues with fuel flow and pressure
Troubleshooting component faults
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
This course starts by covering the basics of operation and requirements for fuel ignition in the combustion chamber. It then examines the whole fuel system from tank to injector, covering the key components and how they operate. Special focus is given to adjusting the injection pressure. The course also delivers clear explanations for high-pressure and flow control, and how they work in combination.
The final part of the course covers troubleshooting. Problems are often indicated by fault codes or symptoms, but this course will teach you how to build up a full picture by checking mechanical operation and fuel flow first. Simple tips and methods are provided to help you reach correct conclusions and carry out your work in a logical sequence.
