This thoroughly updated softcover text strikes an excellent balance between hands-on practice and theory of diesel operation and maintenance requirements of manufacturers. Diesel Mechanics equips students with state-of-the-art procedures and techniques needed to diagnose, repair, troubleshoot, and maintain diesel engines in the real world. It features the latest methods for working on modern control systems and provides in-depth information on fuel injection systems and electronically-controlled engines. The text includes maintenance and repair coverage of stationary, marine, and truck engines. A new, two-color format contains more than 1,000 illustrations and improved line drawings that help students visualize important concepts.


  • Provides new maintenance techniques and covers recent advances in electronic engine controls.
  • New coverage of air brakes and enhanced coverage of engine operation under extreme conditions.
  • Multiple-choice format for end-of-chapter questions makes text consistent with ASE guidelines.
