Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Exceptionally thorough, this book covers every aspect of the ASE certification program with great detail and with an emphasis on safety. It provides a diagnostic and repair approach to the traditional rear-wheel drive, the modern front-wheel drive, and four-wheel and all-wheel drive systemsconsidering for each system the theory of basic operation and the methods used to diagnose, adjust and to repair it. An accompanying workbook and CD-ROM makes learning more fun for users. Coverage of every aspect of the ASE certification program includes ASE-type questions at the end of each chapter and the ASE Task List for this area. Expanded manual drivetrains and axles testing, diagnosis, and service procedures reflect new tools, equipment, and service procedures. Extensive electrical electronic content for testing, diagnosis, and repair reflects the use of electrical and electronic devices. Theory chapters explain how the system works, the varied terminology used, and the variety of systems that can be found. Service and repair chapters describe the procedures used to maintain the system for proper operation, diagnosing the cause of a problem when it does occur, and then repairing and adjusting the unit to correct the problem. For anyone preparing to take the A3, Manual Drive Trains and Axles test.

Book News Annotation:

This text covers basic operating principles and service procedures related to manual transmissions, and treats all types of auto and light truck drive trains in terms of theory of operation, troubleshooting, and service. Coverage encompasses the traditional rear wheel drive, the modern front wheel drive, and four-wheel and all-wheel drive systems. Theory chapters provide an understanding of how systems work, and service and repair chapters follow each theory chapter. This edition covers the use of electrical and electronic devices, and contains expanded information on six-speed transmissions and lubricants used in manual transmissions. Key terms, short case studies, and boxes on repair tips are new to this edition.
