What is the automotive process approach for auditing?

When auditing a certain process, my approach is to ask the process owner first about the expected outputs of the process. Then once they are established, the next set of questions are intended to obtain the controls, criteria, resources, monitoring and measurements, including actions to address risks/opportunities, that will ensure that the expected outputs are delivered. I don't use clause-based checklist. My question is, is my approach different from what IATF 16949 intention on clauses 7.2.3a and 7.2.4a which requires competence on the "automotive process approach for auditing"?

I think it's ok. You can use the turtle diagram method. However , you should also explore how the process subject to internal audit is interrelated with the others of QMS.
You can deal with customers requirements applied to it , and, in general, have a matrix for all IATF clauses applied to it. There are some clauses that are crossed to all QMS processes.

Every process has inputs - activities - outputs (together with registrations, KPI's,...).
Internal audits should check how all of these are "in grip".
