AT211 - Emission Control Systems
Credits: 3
Prerequisite(s): AT100 Performance Fundamentals, AT108 Automotive Electrical Foundations,  AT112 Engine Electronics.
Co-requisites: None.
 
This course focuses on the electronically controlled systems used to monitor engine operation and emission compliance control devices.  Students will concentrate on engine performance, drivability concerns, analysis of system problems, diagnosis of system failures and component test procedures.  Students will be able to diagnose emission related inspection failures and to understand PCM strategies.  The laboratory component of the course includes various activities that follow the guidelines of the National Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF).  A library/internet research written project concerning some aspect of an automobile’s emission system will be assigned and is an integral component of this course.
