Book Description

20 Oct 1989 Technical (including tuning & modifying)
This is the authoritative handbook on Bosch Fuel Injection and Engine Management Systems. This is the only manual that fully explains aspects of the most widely installed Bosch systems, including specific technical information on the newest KE-Motronic and LH-Motronic systems that is not available from any other source. Bosch Systems covered: Motronic, LH-Motronic, L-Jetronic, LH-Jetronic, KE-Jetronic, KE-Motronic, K-Jetronic & D-Jetronic. Author Charles Probst has worked directly with factory engineers and technicians from Bosch, Porsche, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Audi, and other manufacturers to produce down-to-earth but detailed technical literature for real-world technicians. Now complete service and maintenance procedures, with Chuck's expert advice and troubleshooting tips, are available to you. Chuck clarifies advantages and operating principles of each Bosch system and explains how they work. He also gives you high performance tuning secrets that really work for street and racing applications, and tells you why some tricks, like fooling the computer, don't. With over 350 illustrations and photos, this 224-page book is a must-have reference for do it yourself mechanics, performance enthusiasts, and professional technicians who want to understand Bosch systems. Features: Fuel Injection Training & Theory: How each system works. Engine Management Systems: How they differ from Fuel Injection Systems. How to troubleshoot problems and service each subsystem. Tools and equipment are needed. How to adjust and control engine idle speed. How to adjust air-fuel mixture. How engine management systems adjust timing for gasoline octane and turbo boost.

Format:Paperback
A very good book that explains how all the bosch fuel injection systems work. It has some diagnosis charts that take you step by step on diagnosis and repair of the different parts of the injection systems. However, the author missed on how to internally tune the volumetric air meter, which is the most important piece of the system. The performance tuning part gives you some ideas on how to modify your car injection system. I used it to modify the system on my car, with some gain in performance. It has a lot of pictures and explains very well what it covers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good grounding 16 May 2013
By Mr I
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is well written and laid out and a good grounding in fuel injection systems. When you've read it, it makes understanding individual car FI and |Engine Management systems a little easier to understand and diagnose.

5.0 out of 5 stars The big picture with fine detail. 10 Mar 2000
By sean dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is geared not to the performance enthusiast, but to the veteran trouble-shooter and D.I.Y. home mechanic. Wonderfully clear briefs and specific testing procedures. In-depth theory and operation. Does not pretend nor try to cover specific data of all cars. This is the big picture, and then disected component by component. I found using the book with the factory manual worked best.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well written and informative book. 20 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book covers both electronic and manual fuel injection. It gives a general explanation of how each type works with a more detailed description of each type later in the book. There are trouble-shooting guides and testing techniques are included. My only two criticisms of this book are: The trouble-shooting guides are not as comprehensive as they could be. The chapter on tuning basically tells you not to bother and includes very few useful tips. Unless you are interested in the performance tuning of your fuel injection system this is an excellent book and well worth owning.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK but not as complete as Watson's "How to Tune and Modify B 20 Sep 1998
By rwitherjr@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was not as complete as the previous review had rendered. The "how to Tune and Modify Bosch Fuel Injection" book authored by Ben Watson was more complete and addressed troubleshooting guides. This book required you to have a set of OEM manuals for the proper spec's. The book was a good overview on operation and theoreticals on the systems but didn't allow enough info for the tuner and troubleshooter, especially for the CIS systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book 27 Feb 2003
By Aaron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a companion to my VW Vanagon book. Since I was new to fuel injection, and the Vanagon book had little/no troubleshooting information, I was completely stumped with fuel injection/ignition problems after a major overhaul of my '85 waterboxer engine. The Bosch book was a life saver. Not only did I (quickly) get my engine running, but I now understand how the whole thing works. Even for people who don't have Bosch systems and want to learn how fuel injection works, this is a good book.
