What’s new in the 8th Edition?
This eighth edition of Automotive Engines has been updated and refined to reflect changes in the marketplace. The seventh edition was produced in a four color design for the first time with many new and updated photos and illustrations. This has been a tremendous improvement. An emphasis on photos and art anticipates the needs of those with different learning styles and encourages student interest in reading the related text. New color photos and illustrations have been added to this eighth edition to continue improving this project. The design and engineering of the internal combustion engine is continuing to evolve, with enhancement of high-performance sport compact cars and vehicle restoration accounting for a substantial part of the industry.
Here is a listing of some of the highlights:
- The updated high-performance Section 5 includes three chapters with updated information on engine breathing, including intake and exhaust manifolds, turbocharging, supercharging, high-performance camshafts, and variable valve timing.
- Up-to-date information on cooling and lubrication systems is included in this edition of the text. Engines last far longer than they did 25 years ago. Maintenance is important to vehicle owners; cooling system failures that result in serious engine damage must be avoided.
- Metric micrometer reading has been expanded in Chapter 6. New or updated case histories highlight real world situations, providing more critical thinking practices.
- Vintage Engines additions help put newer technologies in historical perspective by offering interesting facts about older technologies while separating them from the core text, along with accompanying photographs.
