Mechanical failure is the main cause of rescue call-outs to cruisers. Basic maintenance and engine care will help ensure that you are not part of this statistic.
Most engine problems can be avoided by taking simple precautions, and you don’t need a detailed mechanical knowledge.
This course teaches you how your engine works, how to keep it healthy by using basic checks and maintenance procedures, and how to get it started again in the event of a breakdown
You will get to work on a real engine in a workshop environment, learning all about the diesel engine, how it works, and what might make it stop. Your instructor will set up some faults, requiring you to fix them in a systematic manner. During the session you will learn how to bleed the fuel system, replace fuel, oil, and air filters, and replace a pump impellor.
This is hands on training at its very best.
For those wanting to go further we do offer a 4 day maintenance and fault finding course
