Automotive class to compete
WOODS CROSS — Based on the results of a written exam, automotive students at Woods Cross High School were selected to participate in a hands-on car-repair competition.
As one of 10 teams in the state selected to participate, they have been assigned a 2012 Ford Mustang Premium with a 3.7L V6 engine, as the vehicle they will be working on.
They have been given three weeks to become familiar with the vehicle and then, on the day of the competition, Thursday, April 28, will be given a repair order with all of the potential conditions the vehicle may have.
All teams will proceed to diagnose and correct the cause of each problem, and the team that correctly diagnoses and repairs the problems and has the highest quality car in the shortest time will be declared the winner and will be eligible for national competition in Dearborn, Mich.
