  • Steering system – An automotive system that is used to turn the wheels of a vehicle.
  • Suspension system – An automotive system of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows to relative motion between the two.
  • Super charged engine – An engine that is similar to a turbo-charged engine which uses a series of belts or chains from the crankshaft to turn the turbines that forces the air/fuel mixture into the cylinder heads under pressure creating a bigger explosion which generates more power. A turbocharger uses the exhaust gases to turn the turbines to create the same effect.
  • Thermostat – A device for automatic regulation of temperature.
  • Torque – A twisting force that tends to cause rotation.
  • Transaxle – Type of construction in which the transmission and differential are combined in one unit.
  • Trouble light – It is a special lamp used to illuminate obscure places and able to handle moderate abuse. The lightbulb is housed in a protective cage and a handle that are molded to form a single unit.
  • Turbo charged engine – A performance-increasing turbine positioned in the exhaust system. Expanding exhaust gases spin an impeller (very small fan-type blades) at speeds up to 25 thousand rpm, driving a similar compressing impeller. Compressed air from the driven impeller is forced into the induction system, which squeezes more air/fuel mixture into the combustion chambers. With the greater charge of air and fuel, a more powerful combustion burn results, thus more power. The big advantage of the turbo over directly driven superchargers is the increased efficiency, although there is a slight lag before the turbine spins up and increases the power output. Originally turbo was developed to enable aircraft to fly at high altitudes, then they found use in diesel trucks and train engines to increase their torque.
  • U-joint – A four-joint cross-connected to two U-shaped yokes that serve as a flexible coupling between shafts.
  • Vehicle performance – It refers to operational and functional condition of the vehicle.
  • Vehicle reference materials – Materials which contains information for operations, maintenance and repair of vehicles.
  • Wash bay – Area where the vehicle is washed after service.
