In the context of engine fault detection and isolation, we focus on three main aspects: engine modeling and validation, engine parameter identification, and cylinder pressure waveform reconstruction. Simulation results obtained with MATLAB show a root mean square (RMS) error of 0.0891 rad/sec between the estimated and the actual crankshaft angular velocity fluctuation for the normal operating condition. The pressure waveform reconstruction is characterized by a RMS pressure error range of 0.155 MPa to 0.277 MPa for the normal operating condition. For each of the six under-fueling faults, the pressure waveform corresponding to the faulty cylinder is reconstructed. The RMS error range is of 0.155 MPa to 0.386 MPa
