With the complexity of today’s modern vehicles, as technicians, we are going to have to stay on top of our game.

Over the last 28 years of being a technician, I have developed the habit of checking for and reading technical service bulletins at the forefront of the diagnostic process, especially when an unfamiliar vehicle exhibiting blatant or straightforward concerns comes into the shop. I have found many valuable nuggets of information while reading over these bulletins, from wiring concerns and connector issues, to transfer noises, water leaks, and engine and transmission performance concerns. The knowledge gained in reading through these bulletins has not only helped me with the vehicles I’m working on, but also increased my perspective and ability to connect the dots on other vehicles that don’t pertain to a current bulletin.
