For courses in Automotive Principles, Service and/or Mechanics.


Automotive Technology: Principles, Diagnosis, and Service, Fourth Edition, meets the needs for a comprehensive book that covers all eight areas of automotive service, plus the soft skills and tool knowledge that must also be taught.  Because many automotive systems are intertwined, presenting all systems together in one text makes it easier for the student to see how they are all connected.  Topics are divided into 133 short chapters, which makes it easier for instructors and students to learn and master the content.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book but no cd use 22 April 2013
By Mario - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book thinking it came with a cd/access code full of usefull information and videos. Unfortunatly you can only use the disk or access code if you are in a class that gives you a class code. Which means all those useful test, videos, useful information, ect you cant use. The book itself is very good and informative. It is very clear and has great pictures.

I bought this book on my kindle fire it is very informative the only thing I didn't like and kind of bothered me was that the kindle fire version doesn't come with the access code that is required in the "my automotive lab" website only the hardcover version comes with it I think that access code should come with both the hardcover and kindle fire version

5.0 out of 5 stars HEAVY 29 Dec 2013
By Heather Maul - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I received this textbook and was shocked at the weight of the package. I thought it must be a pack deal of a book (a manual for lab and a manual textbook) but was very wrong. This book is near four inches thick and weighs 10lbs. The weight is burdensome. The content however makes up for it. Looking through the contents you have everything included that you would need for MULTIPLE automotive courses. Where was this textbook 7 years ago when I began college???? It covers braking systems, electrical systems, suspension, steering, (touches on) hybrid vehicles, and more! This takes up for the 4 books I had to use for several courses. For that reason it's worth it's weight! Plus had it been around I would have saved some money; cheaper to buy this than the several other textbooks required at the time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sold as New but not New 9 Aug 2013
By Jason Harrell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very disappointed. This book was sold as new, but as I have gotten deeper into it, I have found writing on several of the pages. This book has 1650 pages, so a one month return/replacement policy really isn't enough time to find out that this is a used book. If I had wanted a used book, I could have gotten one cheaper. $130 - New - $80 - Used. Buyer beware!
