Overview

TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS AND TRANSAXLES, 5E is a Classroom Manual and Shop Manual set that has been completely updated to keep pace with industry trends and the needs of automotive education programs across the country. This book's technician-oriented focus will help your students master all of the design, construction, troubleshooting techniques, and service procedures required for them to enter the workplace. The Classroom Manual begins with an introduction to drive train basics and the Shop Manual begins with an introduction to safety. This is followed by a review of directly relevant electricity/electronics principles, plus more opportunities for your students to gain practice in using scanners and oscilloscopes to develop critical thinking skills, diagnose problems, and make effective repairs. TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS AND TRANSAXLES, 5E also includes an introduction to continuously variable transmissions (CVT), up-to-the-minute coverage of drivelines for front-wheel drive (FWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicles, as well as the latest information on today's high-tech electronic controls and automatic shifting devices.
