With students having so much to learn in a short time, why fill the pages of a textbook with information they do not need?

The emphasis of this book is on those things that students need to know about the vehicles of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

This does not mean that the pages are filled with fact after fact. Rather, each topic is explained in a logical way, slowly but surely.

Table of contents

After many years of teaching, I have a good sense of how students read and study technical material. I also know what things draw their interest into a topic and keep it there.

These things have been incorporated in the writing and features of the book. This new edition of Automotive Technology: A Systems Approach represents the many changes that have taken place in the automotive industry over the past few years.

With each new edition, a new challenge for me presents itself.

What should I include and what should I delete? I hope that I made the right choices.

Of course, if I did, I give much of the credit to the feedback I have received from users of the fourth edition and those individuals who reviewed this new edition while it was in the making. They all did a fantastic job and showed that they are truly dedicated to automotive education. Although much of the information from the fourth edition was retained, each chapter has been updated in response to the changing industry.

In addition, there are some new chapters that should be helpful to students and their instructors. The first section of chapters, which give an overview of the automotive industry, careers, working as a technician, tools, diagnostic equipment, and basic automotive systems, has a totally new look. In fact, the content of these chapters has been rearranged to better match the responsibilities and career of automotive technicians.

Chapter 1 explores the career opportunities in the automotive industry.

This discussion has been expanded to include more about alternative careers, including the parts distribution world. Chapter 2 covers workplace skills and the ways to go about seeking and selecting a job in the automotive field. This chapter goes through the process of getting a job and keeping it.

It also covers some of the duties common to all automotive technicians. Chapter 3 covers the basic systems of the automobile in a very basic approach and has been updated to include hybrid vehicles. Chapters 4 through 6 cover very important issues regarding hand tools, shop equipment, and safety issues including bloodborne pathogens.

Chapter 5 gives a brief look at the special and diagnostic tools required for working in each of the eight primary ASE certification areas. Chapter 7 is new. It goes through the procedures involved in common safety inspections and preventive maintenance programs.
