Self Study Program 842003 – Motronic ME 7 Engine

Volkswagen has used a variety of fuel injection systems in production vehicles for over 30 years. From the first D-Jetronic systems of the 1968, to the most current Motronic system for 2000 and beyond, each system has always been on the forefront of technology.

As a result, Volkswagen vehicles run cleanly and efficiently, resulting in lower exhaust emissions. The combination of ME 7 technology and Volkswagen engineering ensures Volkswagen will continue to surpass the current technology.

This course is an operational overview of the ME 7 system, introducing the technician to the operating principles of the Motronic ME 7 engine management system.
