This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Written by an experienced diesel technician, this book has an intensely practical approach to the most popular, current light and medium duty diesel engines rather than a theoretical or descriptive one. While most diesel books are directed to heavy-duty diesels used in less than 20% of all diesel engines produced, this book is directed to the 70% market share of diesels used in light and medium duty applications. The technology enabling the use in this new generation of powerful automotive diesels is vastly different from heavy-duty diesels and requires its own unique coverage. Currently, this book is the only one available to serve the requirements of automotive technicians servicing these light-duty engines. This book is part of the Pearson Automotive Professional Technician Series, which provides full-color, media-integrated solutions for today’s students and instructors covering all eight areas of ASE certification, plus additional titles covering common courses. Peer reviewed for technical accuracy, the series and the books in it represent the future of automotive textbooks.
