The diagnostic testing of internal combustion engine can be made by using working processes and methods which take advantage of leftover processes. Working processes give information about general condition of internal combustion engine. Leftover processes give information about condition of particular subassemblies and kinematic couples; hence they are used as autonomous processes or as processes supporting other diagnostic methods. Methods based on analysis of vibrations and noise changes to determine technical condition of object are named as vibroacoustic diagnostics. In papers about vibroacoustic diagnostics of engine, problems connected with difficulty to select test point and to define diagnostic parameters containing essential information about engine’s condition, are most often omitted. Selection of engine’s working parameters and conditions of taking measurements or recording vibration signal are usually based on references, researcher’s experience or intuition. General assumptions about taking measurements of signal closest to its source are most often used. This paper presents a new approach to vibroacoustic diagnostics of internal combustion engine. Selection of test points of vibration on the basis of impact tests results was suggested and performed a sensitivity analysis of measurement points on the cylinder head, the force impulse.
