Fuel System and Emission Control is part of the Chek-Chart automotive series. The entire series is job-oriented and designed especially for students who intend to work in the automotive service profession. The package for each course consist of two volumes, a Classroom Manual and a Shop Manual.

The fifth edition of Fuel System and Emission Control has been completely revised to include in-depth coverage of the latest developments in automotive emission controls and fuel systems. Students will be able to use the knowledge gained from these books and from their instructor to diagnose and repair automotive emission controls and fuel systems used on today's automobiles.

This package retains the traditional thoroughness and readability of the Chek-Chart series. Furthermore both the Classroom Manual and the Shop Manual, as well as the Instructor's Manual, have been greatly enhanced. CLASSROOM MANUAL
New features in the Classroom Manual include:

  • New chapters on computer input devices, computer output devices, and emissions.
  • Three new chapters covering ignition systems.
  • Objectives in each chapter that alert students to the important themes and learning goals.
  • Over 65 new illustrations.
  • An appendix has been added that includes OBD II Diagnostic trouble codes, major elements of operating I/M programs, vehicle manufacturer service information websites, and links to state emission programs.
  • Obsolete material has been deleted.
SHOP MANUAL

Each chapter of the completely revised Shop Manual correlates with the Classroom Manual. Like the ClassroomManual, the Shop Manual features an overhauled illustration program. It includes over 135 new or revised figures and extensive photo sequences showing step-by-step repair procedures. INSTRUCTOR'S MANUAL

The Instructor's Manual includes task sheets that cover many of the NATEF task list for A8 Engine Performance. Instructors may reproduce these task sheets for use by the students in the lab or during an internship. The Instructor's Manual also includes test bank for the instructor's use.

The Instructor's Resource CD that accompanies the Instructor's Manual includes Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentations and photographs that appear in the Classroom Manual and the Shop Manual. Each photograph included on the Instructor's Resource CD cross-references the figure number in either the Classroom Manual or the Shop Manual. These high resolution photographs are suitable for projection or reproduction.

Because of the comprehensive material, hundreds of high-quality illustrations, and inclusion of the latest technology, these books will keep their value over the years. In fact, Fuel System and Emission Control will form the core of the master technician's professional library.
