Engine Diagnostics and Repair Technician:

In the Engine Diagnostics and Repair course, I was taught the proper nomenclature of engine components, proper engine disassembly and assembly techniques, inspection, measurements, component preparation, lubrication systems, cooling systems, and diagnostic procedures of compression leaks, oil pressure problems, excessive oil consumption and unusual engine problems and noises, as well as step-by-step procedures in valve train repair.

Course was approximately 80% hands-on and 20% theoretical.

Included in the training was diagnosis and repair of manual and power steering gears, power steering pumps, and step-by-step procedures of diagnosing tire wear and drivability problems.
