View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The BOSCH handbook series on different automotive technologies has become one of the most definitive sets of reference books that automotive engineers have at their disposal. Starting with a brief review of the beginnings of automotive history, this book discusses the basics relating to the method of operation of gasoline-engine control systems. The descriptions of cylinder-charge control systems, fuel-injection systems (in-take manifold and gasoline direct injection), and ignition systems provide a comprehensive, firsthand overview of the control mechanisms indispensable for operating a modern gasoline engine. The practical implementation of engine management and control is described by the examples of various Motronic engine-management systems and of the control and regulation functions integrated in this particular management system.

The 3rd edition offers new or completely revised chapters in the following areas - High pressure pumps for direct gasoline injection; Mixture formation for manifold injection; Gasoline engines fuelled by natural gas; Catalytic exhaust-gas treatment; Diagnostics.   A key chapter looks at emission control legislation and provides an insight into the complexity of the statutory provisions.

From the Back Cover:

A brief retrospective of the early years of the history of the automobile is followed by a description of the principles behind the operation, management and control of a gasoline (spark-ignition) engine. Descriptions of the cylinder-charge control, fuel-injection, ignition, and catalytic emission-control systems provide a comprehensive overview of the control mechanisms which are essential to the operation of a modern gasoline engine. The texts dealing with the Motronic engine-management system illustrate how this is put into practice. Particular emphasis is placed here on the diagnostic functions, which, on account of the ever more stringent requirements of emission-control legislation, make up an increasing proportion of the Motronic system.
