The Modern Automotive Technology Workbook is two products in one: a text study guide and a shop activity guide. It is designed to help you learn the essential aspects of automotive technology. It does this by highlighting the most important content in the textbook and supplementing this information with in-shop activities (jobs). The first portion of the workbook serves as a study guide for the textbook chapters. The exercises in this section reinforce the material in the textbook, ensuring that you understand both the written and illustrated aspects of automotive technology. Illustrations are used heavily in the workbook. After answering written questions on a subject or assembly, you will often be asked to identify related parts on a simplified illustration. This will help you more fully grasp the written material. The jobs in the second part of the workbook are supplemental hands-on tasks. They provide detailed instructions for a variety of shop activities, such as servicing cylinder heads and brake assemblies. Other jobs cover shop safety, checking vehicle fluids, using service manuals, and servicing ignition systems. All jobs will help you develop the practical skills needed to work in an automotive repair facility.

This book arose from a need for an automotive engineering textbook that included analysis as well as descriptions of the hardware. Specifically, several courses in systems engineering use the automobile as the basis. Additionally, many universities are now involved in collegiate design competitions such as the SAE Mini Baja and Formula SAE competitions. This book should be helpful to such teams as an introductory text and as a source for further references. Given the broad scope of this topic, not every aspect of automotive engineering could be covered while keeping the text to a reasonable and affordable size. This book was written for engineering students from varied backgrounds to include mechanical, aeronautical, electrical and astronomical engineering. Thus, certain topics that would be a review for mechanical engineering students may be an introduction to electrical engineers, and vice versa. Furthermore, because the book is aimed at students, it sometimes has been necessary to give only outline or simplified explanations. In such cases, numerous references have been made to sources of other information. Practicing engineers should also find this book useful when they need an overview of the subject, or when they are working on particular aspects of automotive engineering that are new to them.
