Course Description

This Diesel Pump Engine Maintenance training is a comprehensive program that covers basic diesel engine operation including the function, operation and maintenance of the air intake system, fuel system, exhaust system, lubricating oil system, and cooling system.

This is particularly with using the diesel engine to operate the pumps. The course will be directed towards the use of the diesel pumps for main requirements for the whole systems in general.

Proper maintenance inspections allow participants to catch problems before they become bigger, more expensive ones. This training course discusses the type of maintenance programs participants will encounter, and the types of routine inspections participants will be expected to carry out. Also, this course includes diesel engine operation, including how the diesel cycle differs from other types of engine cycles.
