Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems Vehicle Maintenance and Repair by Tom Denton

Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems Vehicle Maintenance and Repair by Tom Denton

One of the things that I find most interesting about automotive technology and MOTOR REPLACEMENTS is how it advances and changes. It is also interesting that ideas from many years ago often return to favor. In this book, I have therefore concentrated on core technologies, in other words how the technology works, rather than giving too many examples from specific vehicles. However, I have included some examples of Formula 1 technology, arguably the pinnacle of automotive engineering. Did you know that the 2011 McLaren MP4-26 F1 car is made of 11500 components? And that’s counting the engine as one!

Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems Vehicle Maintenance and Repair by Tom Denton

This book is the first in the ‘Automotive Technology: Vehicle Maintenance and Repair’ series:
  • Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems.
  •  Automobile Electrical and Electronic Systems.
  • Automobile Advanced Fault Diagnosis.
The first of its type to be published in full color, this book concentrates on essential knowledge and will cover everything you need to get started with your studies, no matter what qualification (if any) you are working towards. I have written it to be accessible for all, by sticking to the basics. As you want more detailed information, you can move on to the other two books. I hope you find the content useful and informative. Comments, suggestions, and feedback are always welcome at my website On this site, you will also find links to lots of free online resources to help with your studies. Good luck and I hope you find automotive technology as interesting as I still do.
