Whether car or truck – our vehicles are becoming ever more efficient and environmentally friendly. At the same time, the complexity also increases due to the cross-module control and automation. Higher power densities with reduced consumption require constantly evolved materials and manufacturing processes. This also does not stop at the used consumables. Oils and operating fluids, as well as radiator antifreeze have evolved from universal to specialty products that are tailored to individual applications. Like mechanical components, lubricants and operating fluids are considered an important design element – but not always treated as such.

In this seminar you learn ...

  • How to choose the right oil or fuel for your car
  • How to sensibly monitor oils and antifreeze
  • What impact fuel type and fuel quality have on your engine life
  • How to take meaningful lubricant samples
  • How to recognize unusual wear and disturbances at early stages
  • How to judge analytical results from the laboratory
  • How to determine the causes of damage after failures
  • How to set limit values ??to assess powertrain and coolant circuit damage
