Tools That Should Be Present in Every Automative Technician’s Tool Box

Repairing or servicing a vehicle be it a car, truck, or a trailer calls for some experience working with internal components of a vehicle. Professional automotive technicians have both the experience and training to work on all sorts of vehicles. If you ask an automotive technician what allows him or her to do their job effectively, they will tell you that having key tools is almost as important as having proper knowledge about fixing vehicles. Without tools, no matter how skilled you are at fixing cars or trucks, you won’t be able to effectively inspect a problem and then fix it.

Therefore, in this blog, we have listed down some of the key tools that every automotive technician should have in their tool box. Let’s take a look at them.

  • Technicians know that there are fasteners and bolts in cars that are quite difficult to reach. If you do not have a proper tool to deal with these components, then your work can get affected. So, make sure your tool box contains a top-quality flex head ratchet. This particular ratchet is known for having a head and body that is rather skinny, making it capable of reaching those tricky areas and pivot the handle properly
  • Battery issues are some of the common issues that automotive technicians have to handle. Since no technician wants to use his or her hands to take out the old battery, it makes sense to invest in a battery carrier, which allows a technician to remove the battery without touching it
  • How can we not include the hydraulic jack? Many vehicles’ require their underside to be inspected to fix a problem or change a component.With the help of a hydraulic jack, you can hoist the vehicle above the ground and properly examine the underside of a vehicle
  • An engine is sort of like the heart of a vehicle. Automotive technicians have to inspect and work on engines on a daily basis. One thing that often happens while working on the engine is that many technicians accidentally drop small parts such as screws, bolts, nails, etc. in extremely tight spaces. These small parts can every easily drop on sensitive areas of the engine and cause damage. Therefore, technicians should have a magnetic tool as well that can help them pick up dropped nails, screws, etc.
  • As a automative technician, you are not always going to work under direct sunlight or super illumination and we all know how important illumination is for effectively spotting issues in a vehicle and then fixing it. You need a lighting tool that is small in size yet provides amazing illumination by either being hooked or attached to a steel surface
