Publisher Comments:

Fuel System and Emission Control is part of the Chek-Chart automotive series. The entire series is job-oriented and designed especially for those who intend to work in the automotive service profession. The package consists of two volumes: a Classroom Manual and a Shop Manual. The fifth edition of Fuel System and Emission Control has been completely revised to include in-depth coverage of the latest developments in automotive emission controls and fuel systems. Readers will be able to use the knowledge gained from these books and from their instructor to diagnose and repair automotive emission controls and fuel systems used on today’s automobiles. Coverage of new technology incorporated throughout – such as ignition systems, OBD II technology, various I/M programs, computer input devices, computer output devices, and emissions. For those who intend to or already do work in the automotive service profession.
