This automotive course is a basic class to assist you in understanding your car. We start by looking at the way an engine works through the use of small engine technology. We then apply these skills to the car and with lab exercises you become familiar with the function and the knowledge of when to do it yourself or go to the auto mechanic. We will have technical reading, hands-on activities, math skills and team building as the class progress through the semester. You will be instructed in safe operation and tool handling. You can get dirty so gloves and old shirts will be available. These are a few examples of activities in the class; changing oil, tire maintenance, lamp replacement, alternator belt adjustment plus more.
There are no prerequisite for the class.
