Pros and Cons of Being an Automotive Technician


so being an automotive technician is not always fun and games sometimes you got to work on car just keep happy do not want to work on in this case I got this van I got to do a tune-up on and it’s uh out here the Sun there’s no room for it in the in the Bay it’s not gonna be fun so on days like this what I like to do is you get really focused and you make sure the D job go as fast as we can get him out of here and another thing you might get as a technician is pressure from the customer and your service writer so on this particular case this customer is going on a road trip tomorrow and they decide good bring it in for an oil change and kind of check it out so I check it out and it needs a belt so I go to put a belt on it and as I’m putting the belt on it like you know I notice there has a few oil leaks uh but right next to the the belt is the crank sensor and if you look at the wiring right there it’s all rotten well ie inter vertices because it’s plugged in but I changed about night disturb the wiring harness here and now the car intermittently will stall didn’t do it before and cause of it is because the insulation on the wires has rubbed off in the in the crank but because it didn’t do it before now all sudden it’s your albums the last person to touch it so now I have to deal with it so I figured the problem out pretty quickly it’s not going to cost me that much time to repair this but this thing’s you come across the technician and you may or may not get paid for it I feel I should get paid for this job you know I didn’t I didn’t make the car rot or whatever but the customer doesn’t feel that way and the tech the service guy writer he wants to make the customer happy so it’s kind of one of those things I’m going to eat so those are just some of the cons of being an automotive technicians but there sure there is an awful lot of positives I don’t want to paint a picture that this is it’s a horrible job or career it’s attracting really rewarding career or not and I just wanted to point out that it’s not all perfect and you’re gonna have your games like where you’re gonna have cars like this and not working all the cars you want to work what your company cool as we call them here at POS is here I’m Brian answered for pao2 automotive and I like to thank you guys for watching my videos and uh heard you guys see the get out there work on some cars like thank you again for watching
