Automotive: Know Your Car


Know Your Car is a half–unit subject designed to provide the average driver with a basic understanding of how a car works and what should be done to keep it working—whether as a do-it-yourself project or by the mechanics at the local service station. It explains trouble signs to watch for and how to avoid potential problems by preventive maintenance. If a breakdown should occur, it tells what is involved in getting the repairs made and gives a reasonable idea of the repair costs. The course also deals with the issues of deciding whether to keep or replace an old car and buying a new car. In completing this subject students demonstrate their understanding mainly through objective questions. There are 4 examinations in Know Your Car. Haefner, The Car Care Book, Delmar Learning.
