8 Time Award Winning Ford Motor Company Certified Senior Master Technician and Powerstroke Engine Specialist ASE CMAT, CMTT, L1, L2, F1 Owner/Trainer/Technician ATSS Training/Cleary Automotive

Mike Cleary, the instructor, is an eight time award winning Ford Motor Company Certified Senior Master Technician and Powerstroke Diesel Engine Specialist. He was a founding board member of Ford Motor Company’s Professional Technician Society, an organization dedicated to serving the needs of Ford dealership technicians in the United States and Canada. Mike has served on two separate Ford National Technician Advisory Boards, and received national recognition from Ford Motor Company for his contributions to Ford as a field technician involved in improving the 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel Engine Program.

As a member of Ford’s IDS (Integrated Diagnostics Software) beta team, he provides field feedback to Ford regarding how IDS performs on Ford’s newest vehicles. Long recognized for his diesel performance expertise, less well known is that he served as a sort of “Last Chance Garage” for many frustrated customers and technicians while serving as shop foreman and chief driveability and electronics technician at a California Ford dealership. Faced with the prospect of having to repair the vehicle and at the same time salvage the dealer/customer relationship, he developed his own unique diagnostic strategies for quickly and efficiently diagnosing the most difficult problems on a wide variety of vehicle systems: diesel engine performance, gasoline engine performance, and body and chassis electronics.

Mike is an ASE Certified Master Technician in both the Automobile and Heavy Truck categories, as well as being L1, L2, and F1 Certified. He is also certified by the state of California as an Advanced Emission Specialist Technician, and has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Industrial Technology from California State University, Fresno. He has been a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers since 1981.

Mike currently owns his own shop, Cleary Automotive (a Bosch Certified Diesel Vehicle Diagnostics Center), specializing in high tech driveability and electronics repairs on automobile and light trucks, carrying on his “Last Chance Garage” tradition. An internationally recognized trainer, he presents high tech driveability and electronics training for technicians worldwide for his training company, Automotive Technical Support Services, in addition to writing automotive diagnostics articles for industry trade magazines. He has many years of experience as a hands-on automobile technician in independent shops and dealerships.
