in automatic transmissions such as fluid leaks, transmission
slipping, transmission lock-up, and shifting problems. Major
diagnosis, repair, and overhaul of automatic transmissions are
included in this course. FA
Prerequisite: ASE 121
ASE 233 Heavy Duty Drive Train, Transmissions, and
Clutches
3 Credits
This course describes the component needs for a truck driveline
and the procedures needed for inspecting, servicing, and
lubricating universal joints. The eliminating of vibrations
through correct phasing and driveline alignment is discussed.
The students will learn the importance of drive line angles
and how to measure and calculate them. Both hydraulic and
electrical driveline retarders will be introduced. The students
will learn how to identify the types of axles and combinations
of axles as used in medium and heavy-duty trucks. They will be
able to explain the function of a power divider and trace the flow
of power through a tandem drive axle combination. They will be
familiar with the various types of gears used for truck axles.
Students will know the lubrication requirements and service
procedures required for truck axles. Basic troubleshooting
and repair of differential carriers will be taught. Students will
demonstrate competence by disassembling and reassembling
both power dividers and differential carriers. FA
Prerequisite: ASE 131
ASE 242 Advanced Suspension and Steering Systems
2 Credits
Major repair of power steering components, pumps, gears,
cylinders, individual and integral units, rack and pinion steering
(both standard and power), complete suspension overhaul,
four-wheel alignment, and balance is emphasized. FA
Prerequisite: ASE 141
ASE 243 Heavy Duty Suspension and Steering
2 Credits
In this course the student will study heavy-duty suspension and
steering systems as applied to class 3 through class 8 trucks.
Emphasis will be on the diagnosis and repair of: manual and
power steering systems; front and rear axle suspension systems,
tires and wheels; and wheel alignment diagnosis, adjustment
and repair. Related subjects include the inspection of fifth wheel
assemblies, frames and frame members, and cab suspension
systems. FA
