AUT 248 - Engine Perform & Drivability
This course will focus on all aspects of drivability and engine performance. The course will encompass automotive computer systems and emphasizes sensor identification, sensor operation, and computer inputs and outputs and basic diagnostic procedures. Automotive fuel and emission management systems will also be discussed with an emphasis on diagnosis’s of emission control systems, electronic ignition systems and fuel injection systems. Sophisticated engine control systems are studied including distributorless ignition systems, electronic spark control systems and OBDII operation modes. Students will learn and apply knowledge of the integration of the above systems. Strategies for trouble shooting and diagnosis of emission control systems, electronic ignition systems and fuel injection systems are emphasized throughout this course including the use of test equipment such as digital volt-ohm meters, oscilloscopes and hand held interactive computer scanners. Students will continually utilize the latest automotive reference materials in diagnosis and repair procedures.
