AUTO 230 Automotive Lab II

In this lab, students are assigned in pairs to a service bay in our automotive repair facility. Under close supervision, students will practice the hands-on skills necessary to repair today’s computerized vehicles. Some of the repair techniques emphasized are: diagnosis and repair of fuel delivery systems with special emphasis on infrared four gas exhaust analyzing, climactic control systems, diesel engine tune-up and repair procedures, power steering systems, oxygen, acetylene, and electric welding. In addition, students will be assigned on a rotating basis to the following automotive facility management positions: service advisor, shop foreman, service manager. Participation in a weekly seminar designed to familiarize the student with the basic ethics and administration for automotive personnel, proper customer relations techniques, governmental regulations, and environmental regulations used in the automotive industry today will be required. Because customer feedback is critical in evaluating student performance, students will NOT be allowed to work on their own vehicles in this laboratory. Open only to matriculated Automotive Technical Services students.
