PREFACE:

Preface

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 theAutomotive 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.

    Automotive Engines- Broken down step by step.

    A very good book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. This was my first introduction to an automotive class and as soon as I purchased the book, the first thing that caught my attention was all the pictures of the different automotive parts that we, in the class, were studying. The book really breaks it down for the student apprentice learning about automotive engines. The book comes along with a CD that one can read off of their own computer. It shows, among other things, the basic things one needs to know when reading a micrometer, checking timing, and how to do a basic leakage test. The part that I enjoyed most of the book is that it explains in non-technical terms, the automotive engine as a whole, the basic parts of an engine, and why it runs the way it runs. There are sections on how to properly diagnose an engine for problems. The book shows pictures of how a good running engine part should look like, and also, it shows pictures of engine parts that were not properly maintained and the results of it. For those students interested in obtaining their ASE certification in Automotives, the book has ASE-style questions at the back of each chapter, for review for the ASE test. It also includes, at the back of each chapter, a chapter summary, a photo summary of the work described in that chapter, and short-answer and review questions. All in all, a very good book!
