Diesel mechanic helpers typically work in shops surrounded by heavy equipment, chemicals, solvents, dust, and fumes, and assist mechanics in performing maintenance and repairs on vehicles and equipment. This includes checking tire alignment, performing tune-ups, replacing shock absorbers and spark plugs, adjusting clutches, and checking and balancing wheels. Some electrical work, like repairing lights, generators, and starters, as well as installing batteries, is also necessary. These assistants should occasionally expect to work in extreme heat or cold, as well as wear respirators. As assistants, they may occasionally be asked to clean up the shop and perform yard-work like mowing and picking up garbage.
