Prepare tomorrow’s automotive professionals for success.
Automotive Engines: Theory and Servicing, 9/e, covers the practical skills that students must master to be successful in the industry. From shop safety and environmental and hazardous materials, to engine assembly, engine installation, and break-in, readers learn the specifics of automotive engine rebuilding, machining, and repair in a new edition of the text long-recognized as a leader in the field. Formatted to appeal to today's technical trade students, Halderman uses helpful tips and visuals to bring concepts to life and guide students through the procedures they'll use on the job.
To keep your course current, all of the content is correlated to the latest NATEF tasks and ASE areas, and information is included on new topics such as updated vehicle identification and 3-emission standards, top tier gasoline, cooling system hose clamps, oil rating and specifications for gasoline and diesel engines, oxides of nitrogen (NOx) controlled by variable valve timing (VVT), using a scan tool for engine condition diagnosis, torque paint information, and more.
This book is part of the Pearson Automotive Professional Technician Series, which provides full-color, media-integrated solutions for today’s students and instructors covering all eight areas of ASE certification, plus additional titles covering common courses. Peer reviewed for technical accuracy, the series and the books in it represent the future of automotive textbooks.

Cover important automotive topics in a student-friendly format:
Present topics in short, easy-to-read chapters. The content is broken into small, manageable segments. It features twice as many chapters as competitive texts so that a topic or an entire short chapter can be assigned and taught instead of assigning individual page numbers or questions.
NEW! Streamlined content makes reading easier and enhances comprehension.
Explain how to diagnose faults. In addition to explaining how a system works, most chapters include diagnostic procedures and the steps needed to troubleshoot faults.
Demonstrate how automotive systems are connected. The theory, construction, diagnosis, and service of a particular component or system are presented together, in one location. All of the information that students need to understand a topic is included when it is presented, so there is no need to search through the book for other references to the same topic.
Deliver the most up-to-date standards content. All content in the book has been updated and correlated to the latest NATEF tasks and ASE areas.
Bring the subject to life and facilitate learning:
Engaging art programs support today’s visual learner:
Visualize concepts with full-color photos and line drawings. Photos and line drawings complement the text. The photos show the actual parts involved so that the student can view a good or defective part. The line drawings allow the reader to see what is inside a component and how it works.
NEW! Over 65 new or greatly enhanced full-color line drawings and photos have been added to help bring the subject to life.
Break a task down using step-by-step photos. Step-by-step photo sequences detail the steps involved in performing a specific task or service procedure.
Make reading, studying, and content mastery easier. Every chapter includes bulleted and numbered lists to summarize concepts or the steps in a procedure, while the design for main and sub-headings makes it easier to grasp the scope of the chapter. Finally, each chapter ends with a Summary, Review Questions, and a Quiz. Answers to chapter questions can be found in the Instructor’s Manual.
Help students prepare for their professional career:
Prepare for the ASE Certification exam. ASE test correlation charts and NATEF task correlation charts are provided in the Instructor’s Manual. The textbook and workbook page numbers are listed in the NATEF correlation guides to make learning and teaching easier.
Provide learning goals based on NATEF tasks. Each chapter opens with a list of Learning Objectives based on specific NATEF tasks.
Illustrate important concepts using real-world examples:
Offer the perspective of a technician and automotive instructor. The author delivers the point-of-view of a technician and automotive instructor rather than an engineer, technical writer, or salesperson.
NEW! Case studies have been added to many chapters and all include the “Three Cs” (Concern, Cause, and Correction).
Present real situations. Real World Fix boxes present students with actual service scenarios and show how the problems were diagnosed and repaired.
Alert students to potential safety hazards. Safety Tips alert students to possible hazards on the job.
Give practical advice. Tech Tips offer real-world advice from ASE-certified master technicians.
Answer Frequently Asked Questions. Based on the author’s own experience, FAQs provide answers to questions often asked by students and beginning service technicians.
Guide students through on-the-job situations with practical advice:
Give students a greater understanding of a specific task. Notes provide additional technical information.
Limit potential damage to the vehicle. Cautions alert students to potential damage to the vehicle that can occur during a specific service procedure.
Limit potential harm to the technician. Warnings alert students to potential harm that may occur to the technician during a specific service procedure.
Keep your course current with information on the latest technologies and information in the field:
NEW! Updated vehicle identification information and tier 3 emission standards have been added to Chapter 11.
NEW! Top Tier gasoline information has been expanded in Chapter 12.
NEW! Cooling system hose clamps receive additional attention in Chapter 14.
NEW! The latest oil ratings and specifications for gasoline and diesel engines have been added to Chapter 15.
