This document, one of eight in a multi-cultural competency-based vocational/technical curricula series, is on automotive mechanics. This program is designed to run 36 weeks and cover 10 instructional areas: the engine; drive trains--rear ends/drive shafts/manual transmission; carburetor; emission; ignition/tune-up; charging and starting; alignment; automatic transmission; brakes; and air conditioning and heating. A duty-task index lists competencies in each instructional area that the student should be able to perform at the end of the program. For example, in the standard and power steering section, a student should be able to (1) check manual steering gear fluid level, and (2) replace belts and adjust tension. In section 1, each instructional task area contains a list of performance objectives, evaluation criterion, performance guide, and a list of tasks to be covered. In section 2, the introduction and duty-task index is repeated in English, Spanish, and Laotian. Section 3 lists technical terms concerning automotive mechanics in English, Spanish, and Laotian. (CT)
