New unit of competency

Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes required to diagnose and repair faults in the mechanically controlled diesel fuel injection systems of vehicles. It involves preparing for the task, selecting the correct diagnostic procedure, carrying out the diagnosis and the repair, performing post-repair testing, and completing workplace processes and documentation.

It applies to those working in the automotive service and repair industry. The diesel fuel injection systems include those in agricultural machinery, heavy commercial vehicles, light vehicles, marine vessels, mobile plant or outdoor power equipment. This unit does not apply to electronic compression ignition engine management systems.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

2. Diagnose diesel fuel injection system

2.1 Engine tune adjustments are checked and rectified as required according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures, and safety and environmental requirements 

2.2 Fuel system diagnostic tests are carried out according to manufacturer specifications, workplace procedures, and safety and environmental requirements

2.3 Faulty components are identified from diagnostic test results and causes of faults are determined

2.4 Diagnosis findings and recommendations for necessary repairs or adjustments are reported according to workplace procedures

3. Repair diesel fuel injection system

3.1 Repair information is sourced and interpreted

3.2 Repair options are analysed and those most appropriate to the circumstances are selected

3.3 Repair tools, equipment and materials are selected and checked

3.4 Repairs and component replacements and adjustments are carried out according to manufacturer specifications, safety and environmental requirements, and without causing damage to components or system

3.5 Post-repair testing is carried out according to workplace procedures to confirm fault rectification, and any further problems detected as having been introduced during the repair process are rectified

4. Complete work processes

4.1 Final inspection is made to ensure work is to workplace expectations and system or vehicle is presented ready for use

4.2 Work area is cleaned, waste and non-recyclable materials are disposed of, and recyclable material is collected

4.3 Tools and equipment are checked and stored according to workplace procedures

4.4 Workplace documentation is processed according to workplace procedures

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance and are not explicit in the performance criteria.

Skills 

Description 

Learning skills to:

  • locate appropriate sources of information efficiently.

Reading skills to:

  • interpret information from manufacturer and workshop literature when seeking diesel fuel injection system specifications and procedures.

Writing skills to:

  • legibly and accurately fill out workplace documentation when reporting diagnostic findings, making repair recommendations, and recording parts and material used.

Oral communication skills to:

  • clarify instructions
  • report diagnostic findings and make repair recommendations.

Numeracy skills to:

  • measure diesel fuel injection system components and use basic mathematical operations, including addition and subtraction, to calculate distances, tolerances and deviations from manufacturer specifications.

Planning and organising skills to:

  • plan own work requirements and prioritise actions to achieve required outcomes and ensure tasks are completed within workplace timeframes.

Technology skills to:

  • use precision measuring equipment, including micrometers and dial indicator gauges.

Range of Conditions

This section specifies work environments and conditions that may affect performance. Essential operating conditions that may be present (depending on the work situation, needs of the candidate, accessibility of the item, and local industry and regional contexts) are included. Bold italicised wording, if used in the performance criteria, is detailed below.

Safety and environmental requirements  must include:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements, including procedures for working with high pressure diesel fuel systems
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of fluids released from fuel injection systems.

Unit Mapping Information

No equivalent unit.

  • removing, refitting and timing a diesel high pressure pump
  • removing, refitting and testing injectors
  • bleeding a diesel fuel injection system
  • removing and refitting a low pressure fuel pump.

Knowledge Evidence

Individuals must be able to demonstrate knowledge of:

  • work health and safety (WHS) and occupational health and safety (OHS) requirements relating to diagnosing and repairing diesel fuel injection systems, including procedures for working with high pressure fuel systems
  • environmental requirements, including procedures for trapping, storing and disposing of fluids released from fuel injection systems
  • operating principles of diesel fuel injection systems and associated components, including:
  • phases of combustion
  • composition of diesel fuel, including cetane and sulphur content
  • application, purpose and operation of diesel fuel injection systems and components, including:
  • high pressure injection pump systems
  • distributor pumps, including axial and radial types
  • in-line injection pump systems
  • mechanically controlled unit type systems
  • testing procedures for diesel fuel injection systems, including procedures for:

Assessment Conditions

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.

Competency is to be assessed in the workplace or a simulated environment that accurately reflects performance in a real workplace setting.

Assessment must include direct observation of tasks.

Where assessment of competency includes third-party evidence, individuals must provide evidence that links them to the light vehicle diesel fuel injection systems that they have worked on, e.g. repair orders.

Assessors must verify performance evidence through questioning on skills and knowledge to ensure correct interpretation and application.

The following resources must be made available:

  • automotive repair workplace or simulated workplace
  • workplace instructions
  • manufacturer light vehicle diesel fuel injection specifications
  • two different light vehicles with diesel engines with faults
  • diagnostic equipment for diesel fuel injection systems
  • tools, equipment and materials appropriate for repairing diesel fuel injection systems.
