Course content
1. Purpose of vehicle diagnosis, basic terms, basic diagnosis methods, legislation. 2. On board diagnosis (OBDII, EOBD) - history, principles, technical solution, serial communicationk and data transmission. 3. Tools for series and parallel diagnosis - properties od diagnosis testers, automotiv oscilloscopes, external sensors, information sowftware for car repair services. 4. Diagnosis of chosen systems of SI engines with indirect fuel injection - starters, generators, fuel system. 5. Diagnosis of chosen systems of SI engines with indirect fuel injection - ignition system, oxygen sensos (switched type, UEGO), diagnosis of catalytic convertor. 6. Diagnosis of chosen systems of diesel engines - turbocharging, exhaust gas recirculation, rotary injection pumps. 7. Diagnosis of chosen systems of diesel engines - Pumpe-Duse injection system. 8. Diagnosis of chosen systems of diesel engines - Common-Rail systems. 9. Diagnosis of SI engines with direct fuel injection. 10. Exhaust gas emissions of SI and diesel engines - emission systems, regulations, exhaust gas analyzators. 11. Vehicle/Engine Torque and power measurement - roller and engine dynamometers. 12. Diagnosis of elements of passive and active safety systems (brake systems, stability systems - ABS, ASR, ESP). 13. Diagnosis of CAN bus and comfort systems (air conditioning, etc.).

Learning activities and teaching methods
