Diesel Equipment Technology
Diesel service technicians and mechanics inspect, repair, or overhaul buses, trucks, heavy equipment, and other vehicles with a diesel engine. They may work on a vehicle’s electrical system, make major engine repairs, or retrofit engines with emission control systems to comply with pollution regulations. In addition to computerized diagnostic equipment, diesel mechanics use a variety of power and machine tools, such as pneumatic wrenches, grinding machines, and welding equipment. Hand tools, including pliers, wrenches, and screwdrivers, are also commonly used.
