Understanding The Intricacies Of Modern Ignition Systems

Mark your calendars and join us November 30, 2021 at 7 p.m. Eastern for this Motor Age Training/TST webinar!

Every tech knows you need three things for an engine to run – the proper air/fuel mixture, the ability to compress that mixture, and the means to ignite that mixture. To become a better diagnostician, it is important to understand each of these components in as much detail as possible. In this FREE Motor Age/TST webinar, Sponsored by Duralast, Motor Age’s Pete Meier and G. Truglia of TST will focus on the ignition system. We’ll explore how it works, what factors affect the system’s performance, and trace it from “key on” to the moment the spark flies over the plug gap. We’ll include testing techniques for the components involved as well as some diagnostic tips to help you identify even the smallest ignition system fault and will demonstrate “on car” and in the shop.

He’s earned ASE Master Automotive certification, has wrenched on just about everything that runs on gasoline, taught in both private and public vocational schools, trained technicians at regional and national events, and served as the technical editor for Motor Age magazine and later as the EBM Director of Digital Content. During his tenure at Motor Age, he led the publication into the Internet age and was the first to bring an industry trade publication to social media and created the Motor Age YouTube channel, now with over 109,000 subscribers. He was also the first in the industry, in partnership with TST, to host “live” training webinars in a shop atmosphere, making online training as close to a “hands-on” experience as possible. Today, he is the Training Manager (Social Content) for Dorman Products and is excited about the opportunity to bring even more resources to our industry’s working men and women, to help them face the challenges of today’s (and tomorrow’s) technologies and to continue his personal quest to “advance the automotive service professional.
