Candidates' Weakness and Suggested Remedies

Candidates’ weaknesses were shown in their inability to:

  • name the lubricant used in the steering, suspension and transmission system;
  • explain the term SAE 20W/50;
  • state the function of regulator and solenoid switch;
  • state the advantages of the earth return system over the insulated return system of a motor vehicle wiring.


    In order to overcome the above stated weaknesses, candidates were advised to study seriously before sitting for the examination.  They were also advised to familiarize themselves with sketches of various components of a motor vehicle.
