This text presents the principles and practices of engine rebuilding, engine theory and in-the-vehicle service in a clear, concise format.

From the Inside Flap


The fourth edition of Automotive Engines: Theory and Servicing includes many new tech tips, diagnostic stories, and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs), plus photo sequences that help illustrate many engine service procedures. Diagnostic Approach

This textbook was written to satisfy the need for problem diagnosis as its primary focus. Time and time again, the author has heard that diagnostic procedures and skill development are needed most in the automotive field. Diagnostic stories are included throughout to help illustrate how real problems are solved. Each new topic covers the parts involved plus the purpose, function, and operation as well as how to test and diagnose each system. ASE Content Approach

This comprehensive textbook covers the material necessary for the Engine Repair (Al) area of certification as specified by ASE and NATEF The book also includes information on engine machining that will help the technician study for the Cylinder Head Specialist (Ml), Cylinder Block Specialist (M2), and Engine Assembly Specialist (M3) tests. Multimedia System Approach

Over 30 photo sequences are included in the text. Many of these photo sequences are included on a videotape for instructors upon adoption of the textbook. A multimedia CD-ROM that accompanies and supplements the textbook is informative and also makes learning more fun for the student. The CD includes sound, 3-D animation, color live-action video sequences with narration, a waveform library, a glossary of automotive terms, sample ASE test questions; sample worksheets, and the ASE (NATEF) task list for the Automotive Engine Repair and Engine Machinist series. Internet (World Wide Web) Approach

Included with the book is a coupon that entitles the owner to free access to an ASE test preparation web site for an extended time period. Now you can practice and take the ASE certification tests with confidence. Included at this web site are ASE-type questions for Automobile Engine Repair (Al) and Engine Machinist series (Ml, M2, and M3). The questions are presented 10 at a time, then graded (marked). The correct answer is then given as you scroll back through the questions. This feature allows the students to study at their own pace. Worktext Approach

A worktext is also included with the book. The worksheets included in the worktext help instructors and students apply the material presented to everyday-type activities and typical service and testing procedures plus typical results and a listing of what could be defective if the test results are not within the acceptable range. These sheets help build diagnostic and testing skills. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
