How an Automotive HVAC System Works

Here’s how an automotive heat, ventilation and air conditioning system works.

The HVAC system in a car is situated under the dashboard and controls the heat and cooling systems, as well as the defroster.

The AC system consists of the compressor, condenser, drier, evaporator core and expansion valve, the latter two of which are under the dash and are demonstrated in this video.

The heating system consists of the engine, water pump, and a heater core, which is under the dash.

The blower motor, usually situated behind the glove box will blow air from outside or recirculate air from inside the cabin. Air flows past the evaporator core where it is cooled, before heading to the HVAC mixer.

The mixer determines if the air is to be heated or left cold. It also directs air to your face, feet or the defroster. This is done by mechanical flaps inside the housing.

This video goes into details of the thermostatic expansion valve, evaporator core, recirculate actuator, blower motor, temperature sensor, blower resistor, flap actuators and the heater core.

Dashboard removal is necessary in order to access any of these components.

A Career in the Motor Industry – Automotive Services Advisor (JTJS62011)

Having gained a good insight into the role of a workshop supervisor, Scott is changing gears again and meets Phil, a service advisor. This is the first port of call for the customer when they either phone or arrive with their vehicle to get work done. As the face of the company, how customers view their experience begins here. Scott is soon on the job taking phone bookings and checking out loan cars for customers who will leave their vehicle for the day.

Communication is another important asset in this role as Scott learns, especially when there is bad news to convey. But, as Phil explains, building a rapport with the customer and providing excellent service all helps to ensure happy, loyal customers.

Scott has learnt about just three of the many motor trade industry opportunities that are available for those who have a passion for vehicles and mechanics. Maybe the industry could have just the job for you!

An auto mechanic (or car mechanic in British English and motor mechanic in Australian English) is a mechanic with a variety of automobile makes or either in a specific area or in a specific make of automobile. In repairing cars, their main role is to diagnose the problem accurately and quickly. They often have to quote prices for their customers before commencing work or after partial dis-assembly for inspection. Their job may involve the repair of a specific part or the replacement of one or more parts as assemblies.

Basic vehicle maintenance is a fundamental part of a mechanic’s work in modern industrialized countries, while in others they are only consulted when a vehicle is already showing signs of malfunction. Preventative maintenance is also a fundamental part of a mechanic’s job, but this is not possible in the case of vehicles that are not regularly maintained by a mechanic. One misunderstood aspect of preventative maintenance is scheduled replacement of various parts, which occurs before failure to avoid far more expensive damage. Because this means that parts are replaced before any problem is observed, many vehicle owners will not understand why the expense is necessary.

With the rapid advancement in technology, the mechanic’s job has evolved from purely mechanical, to include electronic technology. Because vehicles today possess complex computer and electronic systems, mechanics need to have a broader base of knowledge than in the past.

Due to the increasingly labyrinthine nature of the technology that is now incorporated into automobiles, most automobile dealerships and independent workshops now provide sophisticated diagnostic computers to each technician, without which they would be unable to diagnose or repair a vehicle…


In the United States, several programs and schools that offer training for those interested in pursuing competencies as an automotive mechanic or as an auto technician already exist. A few of the aspects usually taught those studying for this career are: powertrain repair and diagnosis, emissions, and suspension. The National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) is responsible for evaluating technician training programs against standards developed by the automotive industry. NATEF certifies programs in four different categories: automotive, auto body, trucks (diesel technology) and alternative fuels.

Some mechanics are ASE certified, which is a standardized method of testing skill and knowledge level. While it’s not required by law for a mechanic to be certified, some companies only hire or promote employees who have passed ASE tests. The technology used in automobiles changes very rapidly and the mechanic must be prepared to learn these new technologies and systems. The auto mechanic has a physically demanding job, often exposed to extreme temperatures, lifting heavy objects and staying in uncomfortable positions for extended periods. They also deal with exposure to gasoline, asbestos, and other toxic chemicals.

The Internet is even spreading to mechanics, with certified mechanics providing advice online. Mechanics themselves now regularly use the Internet for information to help them in diagnosing and/or repairing vehicles. Service manuals for vehicles have become significantly less prevalent with computers that are connected to the Internet taking their place.

¿Cómo se pronuncian las marcas de coches? | How to pronounce car brand names |

Muchos nos preguntamos más de una vez cuál es la pronunciación correcta de las marcas de coches. Lo más fácil es encontrar a alguien originario del país de la propia marca y que nos lo diga. Esto es lo que hemos hecho. No están todos los son pero si son todos los que están.

The question of which is the correct pronunciation of the car brands has been coming around to nearly all of us. The easiest way to solve it is to find someone native from the country of each car brand who can enounce it. So this is what we are going to do. We actually couldn’t find all of them, but nearly all of them. We missed some but these are the ones we’ve got.

A Career in the Motor Industry – Automotive Workshop Supervisor (JTJS62011)

An automotive engineer can move up through the ranks and become a workshop supervisor. Scott meets Continental Car Services workshop supervisor Devon Scott to learn about what his day might entail. “My primary role is to supervise the technicians and quality control,” Devon explains. This means keeping the team busy, prioritising jobs and then allocating jobs to the most suitable technician. Being a fully qualified technician is a must for the role to ensure the job is being done correctly and to step in and offer assistance if necessary.

Communication skills are also a top priority for Devon as he needs to maintain good working relationships with the team. They need to understand the importance of high quality work as with upmarket brands, customer expectations are also high. So when a job has been completed and the technician has completed the road test, Devon also will do a final quality control road test and check the work done before the car is handed back to the owner. Scott soon realises the road tests are like the icing on this job’s cake!
