When you go to an auto mechanic school, you will be introduced to a number of tools, devices, and pieces of equipment. Each of these has a special function and will be ideal for certain techniques and approaches depending on what the current problem is and the part of the car that should be fixed. The tools will also come in various sizes, types and brands. Get familiar with these items when you enroll.
One of the most basic things that you will get to know about is the auto mechanic tool kit. Inside, you will find wrenches, screwdrivers, nuts, bolts, and other useful devices that will fix different parts of a vehicle. There are different sizes and types depending on your needs and the type of car you’re fixing. The number of tools contained can range from 200 to 800, and may come in various size ranges.
You will also be introduced to the ultrasonic diagnostic tool, which includes the ultrasonic emitter, an ultrasonic receiver, a contact probe, a hollow air probe, a pair of headphones, and a heavy duty carrying case. This equipment features touch-control sensitivity via a pad and a power switch to make everything convenient.
You can also detect problems in the car using the solid contact probe. The probe will immediately indicate where the damage or wear is present, including with internal components. You don’t have to disassemble the parts or open different compartments to locate the problem when using this tool. Some models also feature advanced circuitry that will make it easier to detect problems. The emitter will pinpoint damage to gaskets, seals, and other non-pressurized enclosures.
The Borescope System will detect different problems in the car through an LCD monitor and a flexible camera probe. This probe can be configured and is very small, but provides lighting, so you can look into compartments and other parts with ease. The images will be shown on the color monitor, usually measuring about 3 to 4 inches depending on the brand. You can see damage or problems in the electrical system or plumbing. The device will inspect various parts of the car. You will also find other inclusions in the package, such as the mirror, pick-up hook, magnet, and battery.
This device is quite helpful for finding problems in driveability. You will discover that there are reprogramming capabilities included in the package. This tool is helpful for an auto mechanic school, because it can help students determine a number of problems in the car. Using the device will show you problems in performance, emission-related problems, failure in premature component, check engine light problems, and OE engineering corrections. The system also has wireless network uses, built-in storage, and manager applications.
This device is generally used to check the power of your car battery, as well as determine if there are problems in the electrical system and circuitry. There are various types to get familiar with but the tool generally works when you link it to the battery terminals. You can determine the remaining life of the battery and fix problems in startups and the electrical components of the car when using a circuit tester.
This device can check for problems in blend refrigerants. The device is powered by a lithium-ion battery and will immediately show you or your students where a leak is located. It will also instantly recalibrate in contaminated places so you can determine the proper site of the leak. You will probably be alerted for the presence of leaks through the visual or audio sensor and alerting system.
