By Lee Martin on Oct. 30 2003
Format: Hardcover
I thought that this book was very informative about everything a gear head would want to know about engines and tune ups. The beginning explained how everything worked and operated, i.e.: the internal combustion process. The last half of the chapters focused on engine diagnostic and finding problems with the engine. It also in a few cases demonstrates how to accomplish this task. To help understand all of the mumbo jumbo technical terms, the book also supplies a lot of blown up diagrams that break down the part, photographs and charts. I liked the book and I thought that it was very informative and thorough. I really enjoyed the entire blow up diagrams that broke down the parts of everything you can imagine about engines. It really helped the understanding of the book a lot.

A good start for beginning mechanic Oct. 28 2004
By Eric S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is all about the diagnostic testing of the engine. It is a great lead to learn how to test what system of the engine. It has a vast range of the systems, and it is very easy to read for it has a 10-12 reading level. Though it does have it lengthy and difficult words here and there, there is no worry of understanding what that word is in the glossary located in the back of the book. Haven't trouble finding what you looking for? Check the index located in the back as well.

And just for those who like to double check to see if they understood what they reading, at the end of each chapter there is a summary and a complete set of review questions.

I think that this book is a great starter book for people who have an interest in the automotive field and want to learn to do engine diagnostic tune-ups. Enjoy!

School Review Aug. 27 2004
By Estephan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book did very well in helping me understand how an engine really works. Jack Erjavec went into deep detail on the entire engine process. The diagrams and step by step instrutions work well together, as well as helping the reader understand what to do, better than other books I've read. The book was made in 1986, so it is basically out of date. Comparing the cars in the 1980's and the cars of today, it is probably not a good idea to use this book to fix a present day car.
My Automotive book review Aug. 29 2003
By Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was really good, because it gave the general information, but also how every thing worked. It also had pictures to help. It really helped me with my prodject, but it was such a long book. It would definitely help someonewho wants to be an Automotive Technician or someone that just wants to learn about how cars work.It was really easy to understand. The appropriate audience would be Highschool or higher.
