From the Back Cover:

This second edition of Automotive Technology: Principles, Diagnosis, and Service is organized around the eight major testing areas specified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). These areas of certification are detailed in the objectives for each chapter and all shop worksheets are correlated to the Task List recommended by National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF).

The primary focus is on the principles and procedures needed for successful diagnosis of automotive mechanical, electrical, and electronic problems. Each topic includes coverage of the purpose, function, operation, and diagnosis of the system plus the individual components that are involved.

A multimedia approach is used, including:
  • A CD with the book that includes videos, a glossary, sample test questions, worksheets, ASE content breakdown, and the NATEF task list.
  • A coupon that provides access to a website containing numerous practice questions to help the reader succeed in ASE testing.
  • A Companion Website.
  • Worktext with more than 100 lab sheets.
Some key features of this new edition:
  • Five chapters have been added to strengthen the electrical, electronic, and engine performance areas.
  • Coverage of manual and automatic transmissions has been expanded, with many new color illustrations and photo sequences.
  • All chapters have been updated to reflect the latest technology developments in the automotive field.
