This is the fourth edition of a textbook which aims to cover the construction of motor vehicles and their components in a manner simple enough to be understood by young apprentices beginning their training as mechanics, and detailed enough to serve as a solid foundation for later work.
The second edition of Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems concentrates on core technologies to provide the essential information required to understand how different vehicle systems work. It gives a complete overview of the components and workings of a vehicle from the engine through to the chassis and electronics. It also explains the necessary tools and equipment needed in effective car maintenance and repair, and relevant safety procedures are included throughout. Designed to make learning easier, this book contains: Photographs, flow charts and quick reference tables Detailed diagrams and clear descriptions that simplify the more complicated topics and aid revision Useful features throughout, including definitions, key facts and ‘safety first’ considerations. In full colour and with support materials from the author’s website (www.automotive-technology.org), this is the guide no student enrolled on an automotive maintenance and repair course should be without.
Light and Heavy Vehicle Technology, Third Edition covers the essential technology requirements of the City and Guilds Motor Vehicle Craft Studies (381) Part 2, for both light and heavy vehicles. The book discusses the reciprocating piston petrol and diesel engines with regard to their operating principles and combustion chambers and processes. The book also apprises vehicle heating and the importance of engine lubrication and cooling. Numerous examples of vehicle maintenance procedure and of diagnosing vehicle misbehavior in service are also considered. The book covers the different vehicle systems including intake and exhaust, diesel fuel injection, ignition, automatic transmission control, suspension, hydraulic brake, and electrical systems. The vehicle structure, manual and power-assisted steering, tires, road wheels and hubs, layshaft and epicyclic gearboxes, and fluid couplings and torque converters are also discussed. Students of mechanics and mechanical engineering studies will find this book invaluable.
This textbook will help you learn all the skills you need to pass Level 3 vehicle electrical and electronic systems courses or related modules from City and Guilds, IMI and BTEC, and is also ideal for higher level ASE, AUR and other qualifications. As electrical and electronic systems become increasingly more complex and fundamental to the workings of modern vehicles, understanding these systems is essential for automotive technicians. For students new to the subject, this book will help to develop this knowledge, but will also assist experienced mechanics in keeping up with recent technological advances. This new edition includes information on developments in hybrid car technology, GPS, multiplexing, and electronic stability/vehicle dynamics control. In full colour and covering the latest course specifications, this is the guide that no student enrolled on an automotive maintenance and repair course should be without.

Automotive technicians and students need a firm grasp of science and technology in order to fully appreciate and understand how mechanisms and systems of modern vehicles work. Automotive Science and Mathematics presents the necessary principles and applications with all the examples and exercises relating directly to motor vehicle technology and repair, making it easy for automotive students and apprentices to relate the theory back to their working practice. The coverage of this book is based on the syllabus requirements of the BTEC First in Vehicle Technology, BTEC National in Vehicle Repair and Technology, and the IMI Certificate and Diploma in Vehicle Maintenance and Repair, but will help all automotive students and apprentices at levels 2 and 3 and up to and including HNC/HND, foundation and first degree with their studies and in achieving the Key Skill 'Application of Number' at levels 2 and 3. The book is designed to cater for both light and heavy vehicle courses. Full worked solutions of most exercises are available as a free download for lecturers only from http://textbooks.elsevier.com. Allan Bonnick is a motor vehicle education and training consultant and was formerly Head of Motor Vehicle Engineering, Eastbourne College. He is the author of several established automotive engineering textbooks.

Motor Vehicle Mechanic's Textbook, Fifth Edition is a textbook on the maintenance and repair of motor vehicles that balances theory and practice. Topics covered range from engine principles and components to maintenance of the lubrication, cooling, and fuel systems. Safety in the motor vehicle workshop is also considered. Comprised of 24 chapters, this book begins with an overview of calculations and scientific principles relevant to motor vehicle maintenance and repair, followed by a discussion on equipment necessary for satisfactory engineering drawing. The reader is then introduced to the structure of the motor vehicle; suspension; and the front-wheel assembly. Subsequent chapters focus on carburation; the compression-ignition engine; the electrical, ignition, and charging and starting systems; clutch and gearbox; automatic transmission; universal joints; final drive and differential; and rear-wheel assembly. This monograph is intended for mechanics and will also prove useful to those engaged in the maintenance, repair, and overhaul sections of the motor industry, as well as to motorists who wish to know more about their vehicles.
