New here, have a question

I am going to be in the ford/AAA automotive competition here in Arizona. I am one of the 20 people to qualify. I will be working on a 2011-2012 mustang v6. Is there anything I should know, like any known problems? I have to do a full car inspection, and be able to diagnose any problems. Just if I could get some known problems about the cars or just any helpful information, it would be well appreciated.

Being a senior in high school this is huge I have a chance for scholarships, job offers, and or around 5k in tools if I place high!

Thanks in advance

Common problems are not what you are gonna have to deal with. They bug the cars you work on. Mostly electrical. Wiring schematics and circuit testing will definitely help.

If you want to learn to work on cars, learn to read schematics and data streams. A schematic and data streams will point you to most driveability issues you come up to.
