Features & benefits
  • Concise, easy-to-read chapters present content in manageable sections so instructors can assign topics via chapters rather than individual pages or questions.
  • More than 200 new full-colour photos and line drawings bring subject matter to life, such as good versus defective parts and the inner workings of components.
  • Centrally located content about each system or component — including theory, construction, diagnosis, and service — saves students time searching the rest of the text for related information.
  • Engaging study tools such as step-by-step photo sequences detail best-practice approaches for performing specific tasks or service procedures, such as diagnosing and troubleshooting faults.
  • Real-world examples and practical applications
  • Case studies in technical chapters of the print book present real-world customer issues, and cover the three C’s (Complaint, Cause, Correction) of handling such issues.
  • Real World Fix boxes present actual service scenarios and show how the problems were diagnosed and repaired.
  • Safety Tips, Tech Tips, Notes, Cautions, Warnings, and FAQs offer the real-world perspective of ASE-certified master technicians on safety measures, technical information, efficiency, and actions that can damage vehicles.
  • Chapter Learning Objectives and a chapter-ending Summary, Review Questions, Key Term Flashcards, and the Chapter Quiz support effective learning and provide ample practice.
