Motor Vehicle Mechanic's Textbook, Fifth Edition is a textbook on the maintenance and repair of motor vehicles that balances theory and practice. Topics covered range from engine principles and components to maintenance of the lubrication, cooling, and fuel systems. Safety in the motor vehicle workshop is also considered.
Comprised of 24 chapters, this book begins with an overview of calculations and scientific principles relevant to motor vehicle maintenance and repair, followed by a discussion on equipment necessary for satisfactory engineering drawing. The reader is then introduced to the structure of the motor vehicle; suspension; and the front-wheel assembly. Subsequent chapters focus on carburation; the compression-ignition engine; the electrical, ignition, and charging and starting systems; clutch and gearbox; automatic transmission; universal joints; final drive and differential; and rear-wheel assembly.
This monograph is intended for mechanics and will also prove useful to those engaged in the maintenance, repair, and overhaul sections of the motor industry, as well as to motorists who wish to know more about their vehicles.
