AUTO-325 - AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION TRANSAXLE  3 credits
The operation, diagnosis and repair of the modern front and rear wheel drive automatic transmissions and transaxles will be studied in a classroom laboratory format. Students learn the hydraulic, mechanical and electrical operation of the systems within the automatic transmission and how they relate to each other. Power flow through components is traced to determine how an automatic transmission shifts gears. The electronic controls and the PCM146s strategy as it relates to transmission operation and diagnosis is also examined using the scan tool to perform self tests and monitor electronic circuit operation in all gear ranges. Finally, students perform removal, disassembly, overhaul and reassembly of fully operational transmissions from laboratory vehicles while verifying the vehicles and transmissions proper operation on our state of the art Eddy Current Dynamometer.
