AUTO 225 Automotive Lab I

In this lab, students are assigned in pairs to a service bay in our state-of-the-art 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: use of computerized diagnostic equipment, tune-up procedures, computerized wheel alignment, balancing, electronic circuit testing and component repair, braking system service, chassis and drive train service and repair. In addition, students will participate in a weekly seminar designed to familiarize them with the latest automotive industry service bulletins, and interact with customers because feedback is a critical part of the automotive repair process. Because this method of evaluating student performance can only be achieved by working on the vehicles of actual customers, students will NOT be allowed to work on their own vehicles in this laboratory. Open only to matriculated Automotive Technical Services students.
