Based on the 2014 National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) Medium/Heavy Truck Tasks Lists and ASE Certification Test Series for truck and bus specialists, Fundamentals of Medium/Heavy Duty Diesel Engines is designed to address these and other international training standards. The text offers comprehensive coverage of every NATEF task with clarity and precision in a concise format that ensures student comprehension and encourages critical thinking.
Fundamentals of Medium/Heavy Duty Diesel Engines describes safe and effective diagnostic, repair, and maintenance procedures for today's medium and heavy vehicle diesel engines, including the most current, relevant, and practical coverage of:
• HD-OBD emission diagnostics
• Common rail injection systems
• Exhaust after treatment systems, including diesel particulate filters, selective catalyst reduction (SCR), and lean NOx traps (LNT)
• Variable geometry and series turbocharging
• Exhaust gas recirculation
• Engine braking
• Major engine OEM-specific coverage of fuel, air induction, and diagnostic systems
• Electronic signal processing and sensor technology

Additional features include:
• Up-to-date NATEF coverage
• Support of ASE certification test preparation for diesel engine, medium-heavy truck, and bus test series
