Advanced auto technician job responsibilities include fixing cars per manufacturer standards by performing services such as fuel ignition and electrical repairs, as well as brake and hydraulic fixes. Advanced mechanics also mentor their less experienced teammates, helping them with routine services like oil changes and battery installations.
