Fuel System Testing Tips

Fuel System Testing Tips

Motor Age — Isolating the cause of a drivability problem often requires quick general testing of the engine’s primary systems (fuel and ignition) and of its mechanical condition (cylinder sealing and ability to flow air). In this Motor Age/TST webinar (sponsored by Carter Fuel Delivery Systems, a Federal-Mogul company), we’ll show you some of the common problems affecting the fuel system and how to test it quickly and efficiently using a scope, low amp clamp, and pressure transducer. Learn how to assess the health of the fuel pump, determine if the fault lies in a restriction to flow or pressure loss in the system, and perform an injector balance test…all in minutes instead of hours.
