TECHNICAL TRAINING SERIES
Mechanical & Variable Timing & Valvetrain Diagnostics
Mechanical timing problems have been around as long as the internal combustion engine, but more
complex timing and valvetrain systems have flooded the market in the last decade. Now they’re
showing up in your shop, and the stakes are high. Position sensor codes are often mechanical or
variable timing faults. Variable valve timing (VVT) codes are often mechanical timing faults or
lubrication issues. Even Fuel Trim, MAF, MAP, and other codes are symptoms can be caused by a
variety of timing and lift faults. When it really is a VVT system fault, it’s hard to tell is the root cause is
an oil, solenoid, actuator, or other mechanical fault. What’s needed is a repeatable strategy to avoid
testing ‘everything’, and instead quickly eliminate possible causes. In this first class of our new ATG
import Series, we’ve fine-tuned this approach to include manufacturer-specific ATG Tips for quick
solutions you’d spend hours discovering on your own.
Hydraulic, Electronic & Magnetic Clutch VVT systems
Variable lift & valve clearance faults
Finding stretched/jumped timing without disassembly
Differentiating mechanical & VVT failures
Stuck actuators vs. stuck solenoid diagnostics
Finding internal oiling faults from the outside
Leverage Scan Tool PIDs & functions to eliminate the most possible causes with the least
This list really sums up the problem it’s all related! Only by treating mechanical timing, variable valve
timing, valve train and lubrication all as a single system can you quickly find out what’s not wrong and
zero in on a root cause,
