For courses in Engine Performance and Drivability, Computerized Engine Controls, Automotive Computers, and Automotive Fuel Emissions–in automotive departments of vocational and trade schools as well as community colleges.
Based on the premise that simple problems should always be checked first, this practical, hands-on book introduces the diagnosis and troubleshooting of automotive engine control systems. It serves students as a single source for information on digital storage oscilloscopes, fuel injection and ignition system diagnoses, five-gas exhaust analysis, emission testing, and more–with a very technical but easy-to-read and understand presentation. This edition has been updated to include even more detailed scope (DSO) and current ramping tests plus extensive scan tool diagnosis
This text covers the diagnosis and troubleshooting of automotive engine control systems and, in addition, serves as preparation for the new Advanced Engine Performance section of the A.S.E. examination. Introductory chapters include details on scan tools, digital meters, and scopes and how to operate and read displays and use technical service bulletins. Performing visual inspection, using service manual information, and operating computerized data retrieval systems are also discussed. Remaining chapters discuss computer sensors and actuators including a summary of the purpose, function, and operation of each. Includes CD-ROM with Windows 95 v.1.0 and a hands-on exercise workbook.
