Automotive

Are you hoping to buy a new, or used vehicle, but cannot afford to purchase the entire car up-front? Automotive financing allows individuals or businesses to own a car, without paying for it in advance with one lump sum. There are several forms of automotive financing available and many different providers. Financing can be made available from the dealer selling the car, or by an independent finance broker, and the terms, conditions, length of financing and rates of interest all vary depending on the company providing the financing. Direct loans are available from banks and financial institutions specifically for automotive purchases. Leases allow drivers to pay for only a portion of the car, and return it after an agreed upon amount of time. If you are looking for information regarding the various automotive financing options available, you’ve come to the right place.

The book is a result of a decade of work heavily sponsored by the FIAT group (who supplied material, together with other automotive companies, and sponsored the work). The first volume deals with the design of automotive components and the second volume treats the various aspects of the design of a vehicle as a system.

Automotive Diagnostic Systems

Keith McCord recounts the history of automotive onboard diagnostic systems and creation of the rudimentary OBD I systems and the development as well as the evolution of OBD II. Currently, OBD-II (OnBoard Diagnostic II) is the standard of the industry, and this book provides a thorough explanation of this system. It details its main features, capabilities, and characteristics. It shows how to access the port connector on the car, the serial data protocols, and what the serial data means. To understand the diagnostic codes, the numbering system is defined and the table of common DTCs is shown. But most importantly, McCord provides a thorough process for trouble shooting problems, tracing a problem to its root, explaining why DTCs may not lead to the source of the underlying problem, and ultimately resolving the problem.
