LHS Automotive Technology

December 12, 2017

Automotive students are busy getting ready for finals this week. Students have covered safety, basic tools, buying an automobile, automobile cleaning and paint care, and car insurance. Students have learned how to make double and bubble flares and drill and tap bolt holes. They disassembled small engines and learned how components work together to make a running engine.  All small engines ran when students were done. This was a great accomplishment to tear an engine down, learn how it operates, reassemble, and then actually start it. Second semester we will look at fuel systems, cooling, suspensions, steering, brakes and tires.
