Booklist Review

Up-to-date and packed with modern automotive technology, the latest issue of this encyclopedia is broad in coverage, with many chapters devoted to passenger car construction, principles of operation, and service procedures. It includes the fundamentals of electricity, electronics, on-board computers, pneumatics, hydraulics, high-tech internal combustion engines, and overdrive transmissions. The new antilock braking systems, four-wheel drive, and front-wheel drive are discussed in detail, as are the operation and function of vehicle computers. The explanation of how to utilize a car manufacturer's service manual is very helpful in learning to follow the recommended service procedures, vehicle specifications, and on-board computer trouble codes. An excellent textbook for students, from the high school to post-secondary college level. Index. AG/LH.
