Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

MODERN DIESEL TECHNOLOGY: LIGHT DUTY DIESELS provides a thorough introduction to the light-duty diesel engine, now the power plant of choice in pickup trucks and automobiles to optimize fuel efficiency and longevity. While the major emphasis is on highway usage, best-selling author Sean Bennett also covers small stationary and mobile off-highway diesels. Using a modularized structure, Bennett helps the reader achieve a conceptual grounding in diesel engine technology. After exploring the tools required to achieve hands-on technical competency, the text explores major engine subsystems and fuel management systems used over the past decade, including the common rail fuel systems that manage almost all current light duty diesel engines. In addition, this text covers engine management systems, computer controls, multiplexing electronics, diesel emissions and the means used to control them. All generations of CAN-bus technology are examined, including the latest automotive CAN-C multiplexing and the basics of network bus troubleshooting. ASE A-9 certification learning objectives are addressed in detail.

Over a twenty-year span at Centennial College, Bennett chaired a wide range of motive power curriculum development committees for the Province of Ontario, subsequently authored the curricula and was pivotal in the initiative to move college syllabi toward competency-based outcome models. Bennett has authored over twenty-five books dealing with diesel, truck, heavy equipment, and automotive technology, and he currently devotes all his time to technical writing and speaking engagements. He is an active member of the American Trucking Association's Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC), the Association of Diesel Specialists (ADS), the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), and the North American Council of Automotive Teachers (NACAT).
