This book is first and foremost a teaching instrument developed with help from an industry advisory panel for entry level education covering internal combustion engines. For students this is an introduction to the design of a vehicle power plant or the steps to automotive engine rebuilding. For the professional, it offers resource materials not commonly found in the industry.

Highlighted Myths and Truths throughout the book address inaccuracies common to this industry. End of chapter problems help students develop analytical and problem solving abilities. Questions and problems follow Automotive Service Excellence certification test standards. The book uses both international (ISO) and English (SAE) units interchangeably as is the current practices in industry. Tables and charts make good references for learning and future needs of a practicing mechanic and/or engine rebuilding machinist.
