Innovations by Bosch in the field of diesel-injection technology have made a significant contribution to the diesel boom in Europe in the last few years. These systems make the diesel engine at once quieter, more economical, more powerful, and lower in emissions. This reference book provides a comprehensive insight into the extended diesel fuel-injection systems and into the electronic system used to control the diesel engine. This book also focuses on minimizing emissions inside of the engine and exhaust-gas treatment (e.g., by particulate filters). The texts are complemented by numerous detailed drawings and illustrations.

This 4th Edition includes new, updated and extended information on several subjects including:

  • History of the diesel engine
  • Common-rail system
  • Minimizing emissions inside the engine
  • Exhaust-gas treatment systems
  • Electronic Diesel Control (EDC)
  • Start-assist systems
  • Diagnostics (On-Board Diagnosis)

With these extensions and revisions, the 4th Edition of Diesel-Engine Management gives the reader a comprehensive insight into today's diesel fuel-injection technology.
