How would a person that hasn't done any vehicle maintenance before do in a test?

3 Lions
 Share

Hi guys, 

 

So I just want people who haven't done any vehicle maintenance before is quickly do a practice vehicle maintenance test (24 questions approx). The only two requirements I have is that you can't be a qualified mechanic or anyone studying vehicle maintenance and I want you to do the test without using the internet to help you because I'm wanting to see how well people who are inexperienced in mechanics do. Once you have finished the test could you put down how many questions you got right and the percentage. 

 

Here's the link: http://www.tests.com/practice/ASE-A3-Manual-Drive-Train-And-Axle-Test-sample

 

I just completed the test a few minuets ago and got 24 out of 24 100% (not surprising really as I'm a level 1 qualified mechanic and in the process of doing a level 2 advanced course at college). 

 

Thanks

I'm studying engnieering and already had input on gears and transmissions, but I failed miserably....

Guess there is the difference - mechanics have spot the failures engineers create.

33%, but what is the point? i could give you the same list for finding faults in electronics and most likely most terms would stomp you :D 

I think i understood technical terms used about 50% of the time.

 

On a side note, those 2 mechanics need to stop disagreeing with each other :P

I say not bad, considering I have no experience in these sorts of mechanical repairs. I am a painter in a body shop, so while I work in the automotive repair industry, this is not my area of expertise. I know the basics of mechanical repairs, but most of these are above my pay-grade. I made educated (albeit limited) guesses on many of these.

6 out of 24.

Honestly most of my experience is with Ford trucks and transmissions and even then only basic terminology. Get me under the truck and I can probably figure out what's wrong and how to fix it on paper though its iffy at best.

I feel like multiple choice isn't a good way to test the knowledge of somebody who's otherwise uninformed on the subject.

if you have to insist you think for yourself, i'm not going to believe you.

Managed to get 100%.  But then again I am a car enthusiast who works on all my own vehicles.  And all I drive are manual transmissions.  But my wife took it and only managed to get 2 questions right.  But she knows nothing about vehicles....unless you need her to paint them.

15/24. Also a mechanical engineer that's not a mechanic. My background is more in piping systems.

Ehh, all that really shows is that just because someone is a mechanical engineer, that doesn't mean they are knowledgeable in every type of mechanical system. What it does mean however is that I have the fundamental knowledge to be able to learn the specifics relatively quickly.

 

For example, I wouldn't expect an engineer who works on piping systems to really know all that much about gearboxes outside of the basic stuff you learn in school. Same as I would expect an engineer that works on gearboxes to not know the specifics of piping systems.

yeah that's true. most of the time I already had one of the A/B stuff right, but I struggeled with the english words for that specific stuff as I'm not a native speaker and did not learn that stuff in english.

 

Still studying but have a tendency to go for vehicle based stuff
