A Practical Approach to Motor Vehicle Engineering explains the fundamental principles for each system found in the motor vehicle, including engines, brakes, electrical systems and transmission. This core information is then set in the relevant context of health and safety, customer relations and the testing and replacement of engines enabling the student to gain a wider understanding of motor vehicle engineering. The authors make the text accessible to a broad range of abilities by preparing a basic foundation of theory and exercises before including more taxing problems as knowledge is built up. Practical exercises are included to demonstrate the theory and these can be used in schools, colleges and garage workshops to assess understanding as each task is undertaken. This up-to-date text, based on the Institute of the Motor Industry's 600 series NVQ syllabus, is essential reading for students and keen amateurs in the field of motor vehicle engineering and maintenance.On a compression ignition (diesel) engine, the fuel supply should be cut off, probably by operating the stop control. The instructions that relate to ... Here the battery voltage is being checked while the starter switch is being operated. For a 12V system on a petrol engined vehicle the voltmeter should show a reading of approximately 10V. On a diesel engined ... 9.30 is to check the heavy current circuit of the starter motor and the condition of the solenoid contacts. When the starter motoranbsp;...
