    The third edition of Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems concentrates on core technologies to provide the essential information required to understand how different vehicle systems work. It gives a complete overview of the components and workings of a vehicle from the engine through to the chassis and electronics. It also explains the necessary tools and equipment needed in effective car maintenance and repair, and relevant safety procedures are included throughout.

    Designed to make learning easier, this book contains:

    • Photographs, flow charts and quick reference tables
    • Detailed diagrams and clear descriptions that simplify the more complicated topics and aid revision
    • Useful features throughout, including definitions, key facts and ‘safety first’ considerations.

    In full colour and with support materials from the author’s website (www.automotive-technology.org), this is the guide no student enrolled on an automotive maintenance and repair course should be without.
