All about automotive engineering in a pocket book.

Additionally, over fifty subjects from the previous edition have been either completely updated, revised or extended. This new edition adds hundreds of new pages to the previous edition.

Do you want to know how electronic fuel injection works? The Automotive Handbook will tell you. How to calculate the factors affecting tire adhesion and braking distance? The different testing methods for material hardness? Again, the Automotive Handbook will tell you. With more than one thousand cut-away illustrations, diagrams, tables and sectional drawings, the Automotive Handbook makes even sophisticated automotive concepts easy to visualize and understand.
