Automotive Electrical and Engine Performance by James D. Halderman [PDF]

Prepare tomorrow’s automotive professionals for success.
Automotive Electrical and Engine Performance covers content and topics specified for both Electrical/Electronic System (A6) and Engine Performance (A8) by ASE/NATEF, as well as the practical skills that technicians must master to be successful in the industry. Tomorrow’s automotive professionals get a firm background in the principles and practices of diagnosing and troubleshooting automotive electrical, electronic, and computer systems in a clear, concise format at a level of detail that far exceeds most other texts in the area. Formatted to appeal to today’s technical trade students—and ideal as a reference and resource for today’s automotive technicians—Halderman’s text uses helpful tips and visuals to bring concepts to life and guide readers through actual, on-the-job procedures.

To ensure that readers are current, all of the content has been updated to correlate to the latest NATEF tasks and ASE areas; many new full-color line drawings and photos have been added; a new chapter covers gasoline direct injection (GDI) systems; and new, updated, or expanded information has been included on OSHA hazardous chemical labeling requirements; electrical circuits; GM low-speed GMLAN; fuel pump diagnosis; fuel injection diagnosis; OBDII diagnosis; permanent (Mode $0A) diagnostic trouble codes; and electric vehicle (EV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) charging. Four new appendixes provide a sample Electrical/Electronic systems ASE-type certification test with answers; a sample A8 Engine Performance ASE-type certification test with answers; an NATEF correlation chart showing all MLR, AST, and MAST tasks for electrical/electronic systems (A6) in one chart; and an NATEF correlation chart showing all MLR, AST, and MAST tasks for engine performance (A8) in one chart.
