Automatic Transaxles (AUT-203)
This course is an introduction to automatic transmissions and transaxles. Applying the previously learned information from Manual Drive Trains, Automatic Transmissions will cover the hydraulic principles and the components that allow this transmission to shift automatically. Mechanical components, fluid transfer, circuitry, and testing will be part of this course. Pressure testing and overhauling a transmission will be a requirement. Electronic transmission shifting, lock-up, and diagnostics through a scanner will be covered. Prerequisite: AUT 102. 3 lecture hours, and 3 laboratory hours per week, 4 credit hours.
