Automotive Systems Technology

Learning about automotive technology is a lifetime process.  New technology is being introduced all the time or you may want to work on an unfamiliar automobile.

"Another Mystery solved by John Anello:"

"I'm frequently asked how I can come to a shop and in just an hour or two solve problems that have eluded experienced technicians for days or even weeks.  The key to my, or anyone's, success is to keep going to any training that's available.  This makes it possible for you to understand the system that you're diagnosing so you can apply the logic that guides you to do the correct tests in the correct sequence.  This leads to sucess.

It's also very important to have the best information and tools for the job at hand.  Repairing vehicles quickly and efficiently can be compared to a tripod --- each leg must help support the overall diagnostics.

  • One of the legs is the information required for the specific vehicle.
  • The second leg is the correct equipment for the job.
  • The third leg is the ability of the technician to apply his or her understanding of the system in question.

If any of these legs isn't present, the diagnosis will fall to the ground in failure."  Anello, John. "Another Mystery Solved."Master Technician 1(2006): 18-23
