Welcome to Snap-on Training Solutions. This module is designed to help you get the most out of your ZEUS diagnostic tool, and covers the use of the Fast-Track Troubleshooter expert information.
The Snap-on Fast-Track Troubleshooter contains vehicle specific, experience-based tips designed to help you reduce repair time. Troubleshooter tips are gathered from actual repairs made by OEM and specialty technicians.
To get started, let’s select Troubleshooter from the Engine system main menu. Then select the system. For this vehicle, Engine is the only choice.
There are several tools within Troubleshooter to choose from. Let’s take a look at Code Tips using code P0103 as an example.
Select P0XXX. Then select P01XX Fuel and Air Metering. And there is our code, P0103. All the tips shown relate to the specific vehicle being tested.
Select the code to see code set conditions and test procedures.
To save time, the most common faults are shown first.
Some tips may show extra help in the form of a functional test or OEM service information. A button will be displayed if any related diagrams, specifications, or tests are available.
Just select the button to access the information.
Select Symptom Tips for step-by-step guidance to diagnose problems that do not set codes. Symptom Tips also contains information on thousands of known service issues.
Let’s select Driving Problems as an example. Let’s explore Lack of Power with no DTC.
Troubleshooter shows us that a common problem for this vehicle is a loose crank sensor trigger and also provides a simple test to verify this problem.
Time Savers provides even more useful information, like firing orders and even injector flushing procedures. Let’s take a quick look.
Select Engine Compartment. Select Cylinder Bank Layout. There you go, Cylinder Bank Layout and firing orders that quick!
