Diagnostics, or fault finding, is a fundamental part of an automotive technician's work, and as automotive systems become increasingly complex there is a greater need for good diagnostic skills. "Advanced Automotive Fault Diagnosis" is the only book to treat automotive diagnostics as a science rather than a check-list procedure. Each chapter includes basic principles and examples of a vehicle system followed by the appropriate diagnostic techniques, complete with useful diagrams, flow charts, case studies and self-assessment questions. The book will help new students develop diagnostic skills and help experienced technicians improve even further. This new edition is fully updated to the latest technological developments. Two new chapters have been added - On-board diagnostics and Oscilloscope diagnostics - and the coverage has been matched to the latest curricula of motor vehicle qualifications, including: IMI and C&G Technical Certificates and NVQs; Level 4 diagnostic units; BTEC National and Higher National qualifications from Edexcel; International Motor Vehicle qualifications such as C&G 3905; and, ASE certification in the USA. The first book to focus on the science of diagnostics complete with overview descriptions of how systems operate, diagnostic case studies, detailed diagrams and flow charts, and self-assessment questions. It is an essential text for students studying fault diagnosis and repair, and valuable reference for automotive personnel, from mechanics to service managers. It includes content relevant to all types of vehicles, worldwide. An IMI recommended reading material.
