Abstract : We examine the feasibility of an expert system to assist in the diagnosis of vehicle malfunctions. A passive expert planner is proposed that utilizes multiple domain-dependent knowledge bases. The system is implemented on a personnel computer, and is based on general-purpose car repair manuals. An effort is made to adequately define emergencies. The knowledge base and interference procedure for such a system are also presented.
