Includes lab application of body panel alignment and mandated annual safety inspection, repair techniques to insure customer satisfaction with component fit and operation, keeping customer safety in mind when components are replaced, and techniques to insure customer comfort and engine efficiency through control of heat as they apply to auto cooling, heating and air conditioning systems.
This nine credit hour course covers the procedures needed to understand, test, repair, and overhaul diesel engines and their related components. Major emphasis is placed on the mid-range and heavy-duty diesels of the following makes: Cummins, Caterpillar, Detroit Diesel, Mack, John Deere, and Navistar. Covered is the use of special tools and equipment necessary to troubleshoot, maintain, and overhaul these engines and their related components.
This course consists of maintenance and repair of air brake systems including compressors,
valves, tubing, and circuitry. This course will also include troubleshooting of foundation brakes
and related components. Also covered is air ABS brake components, operation and troubleshooting.
This course consists of the service and repair of heavy duty clutches, transmissions, drive line
and rear axle, leaf, torsion bar, and air suspensions, the alignment of front and rear axle, also
alignment of trailer suspension and on-vehicle tire balancing. This will include Eaton and Meritor
clutches, Mack and Eaton transmissions, and Meritor, Eaton and Mack rear axles. Also covered
are Road Ranger auto shift transmissions.
