Overview

Completely updated by an ASE Master-certified Automotive Technician, the sixth edition of Computerized Engine Controls explains how computerized engine diagnostic approaches. Tackling both domestic and foreign engine control systems, the book begins with an introduction to common engine control components and features an entire chapter on OBD II. The chapters that follow explore the "ins" and "outs" of important multiplexing and diagnostic concepts, introducing readers to diagnostic engine control systems. Emphasis is on how to effectively diagnose and troubleshoot a variety of computer controls, from complex anti-locking braking, traction control, and restraint systems through high-tech transmissions, suspensions, and air-conditioning systems. An excellent source of up-to-date information, this book also provides a solid foundation for expansion into light duty/gasoline or heavy duty/diesel appplications.

  • Early chapters covering basic concepts and generic diagnostic information on sensors, actuators, and memory codes help readers by providing the base of knowledge needed to progress through the study of increasingly complex and manufacturer-specific technical information found in subsequent chapters.
  • domestic and import electronic engine control systems are examined in detail, including GM, Ford, Chrysler, Bosch, Toyota, Honda, and Nissan.
  • Troubleshooting and diagnostics are emphasized, with case studies appearing at strategic points to motivate users and illustrate the application of must-know theory.
  • all-new multiple-choice review questions, including ASE-style questions, are at the end of each chapter, making it easy for users to gauge their understanding of the information presented.
  • the Instructor's Guide contains answers to all of the questions in the book, saving valuable time for today's busy teachers and trainers.

Steve V. Hatch is a professor at the Lincoln College of Technology (LCT), Denver Campus, formerly known as Denver Automotive and Diesel College (DADC). In the automotive field since 1972, he has worked as a technician in both aftermarket shops and in dealerships. Professor Hatch began his teaching career in 1989, teaching evening classes on the side while he continued to work as a drivability technician in a dealership. He began teaching full time in August 1991 at DADC and has since worked as both an instructor and a curriculum developer for the college as well as a training coordinator for Snap-on Technical Training. In 1994 he became part of Colorado's Air Care retraining program, designed to increase the professional technician's level of understanding of modern systems. In 2002 Hatch--working in conjunction with Bridgestone/Firestone and Tires Plus stores--developed a training program designed to increase the diagnostic effectiveness of lead technicians in their stores. An ASE Master Certified Automotive Technician and ASE L1 Certified, Hatch instructs both professional technicians and entry-level students.
