Engine Maintenance Course Tuesday Nights, October 7 - December 16 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm 2nd Floor Conference Room
The Engine Maintenance course stresses the diagnosis of modern systems, while also teaching the basics of engine layout and operation.  Gasoline inboards, outboards, and diesel engines are taught in a way that reinforces the common aspect of how engines work.  This course is complete in one book with one exam.
 
Modern engines offer high reliability and good performance through the use of computerized systems for fuel delivery and engine timing.  Most of these systems are "black boxes" that can no longer be serviced by weekend mechanics with ordinary tools.  The EM course those repairs that do-it-yourselfers can still perform, teaches how to diagnose problems that might be beyond your ability to fix, and how to share information with your mechanic so the right repairs get performed.  The course also covers basic mechanical systems such as drive systems (propellers), steering systems, and engine controls. 
 
Course fee is $51 for members of Fox Valley Sail & Power Sports and $77 for non-members.
