ATO-242 - Driveline and 4X4 Operations

2 credits
The main objectives of the AUTO-485 are the study of the operation and repair of four wheel drive (4WD or 4x4) transfere cases, all wheel drive (AWD) transfere cases and front and rear differentials. AUTO-485 Driveline and 4x4 Operations will also study driveshafts, halfshafts, automatic and manual wheel hubs and the electronic controls associated with all of the above components. Understanding component operations will be the focus in the classroom and laboratory hands-on activities that will provide diagnosis and repair procedures to be performed on lab vehicles. Scan tools will be used to perform self tests and monitor sensor and actuator performance tests on various systems. AUTO-485 will reinforce a systematic and logical, problem-solving approach, using electronic service publications to repair complex systems.
