For courses in Automotive Principles (Automotive Technology) and Engine Repair and Rebuilding (A1) (Automotive Technology) in automotive departments of vocational and trade schools, as well as community colleges.

Preparing today’s automotive students for career success!

Market-leading Automotive Electrical and Engine Performance has been fully updated and expanded to address the latest technology and automotive systems. Written to current ASE tasks and standards, the text covers all tasks of the A6 (Automotive Electricity and Electronics) and A8 (Automotive Engine Performance) ASE certification areas. Each chapter includes practical examples and step-by-step photo sequences covering terminology, best practices, and on-the-job procedures. The 8th edition has been revised with more concise chapters and with new chapters on air management systems, security and immobiliser systems, and safety, comfort, and convenience accessories. Over 75 new full colour line drawings and photos have been added to the new edition to help bring the subject to life.
