Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ideal for both novice and advanced technicians, Automatic Transmissions and Transaxles, Fifth Edition, provides a complete, state-of-the-art source on the operating principles as well as the service and repair procedures for modern automatic transmissions and transaxles. Correlated to NATEF and ASE tasks, the text focuses on the generic theory that underlies the operation, diagnosis, and repair of the units and subassemblies found in the many makes and types of vehicles students will likely encounter on the job. Formatted to better meet the learning needs of today's technical trade students, it visually supports concepts covered throughout, and includes many practical shop tips that guide students through important problem-solving procedures they'll use on the job.
