Tune Up: Automotive Mechanics Instructional Program. Block 5.
O'Brien, Ralph D.
The fifth of six instructional blocks in automotive mechanics, the lessons and supportive information in the document provide a guide for teachers in planning an instructional program in automotive tune-ups at the secondary and post secondary level. The material, as organized, is a suggested sequence of instruction within each block. Each lesson is stated in terms of a specific teaching objective, teaching aids, references, and an outline of information. Upon successful completion of the 30 lessons in the block of work, students will be able to: (1) generally define the occupational responsibilities of the tune-up specialist, (2) identify the systems requiring services recognized by automotive repairmen as being in the tune-up category, (3) define specifically the dependent and independent functions of these systems as they relate to overall vehicle performance, (4) analyze the performance of the systems and individual components to determine their functional effect within standardized specifications, and (5) correct diagnosed malfunctions by proper adjustment and necessary repairs or replacements. Included with the course outline are transparency masters and a reference guide listing related books, texts, and other publications. (MW)
