Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems

Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems concentrate on core technologies to provide the essential information required to understand how different vehicle systems work. It gives a complete overview of the components and workings of a vehicle from the engine through to the chassis and electronics. It also explains the necessary tools and equipment needed in effective car maintenance and repair, and relevant safety procedures are included throughout.

Designed to make learning easier, this book contains:

  • Photographs, fl ow charts and quick reference tables
  • Detailed diagrams and clear descriptions that simplify the more complicated topics and aid revision
  • Useful features throughout, including defi nitions, key facts and ‘safety first’ considerations

Tom Denton: Automobile Mechanical

Tom Denton has been researching and writing best-selling automotive textbooks for over 25 years. His published work is endorsed by all leading professional organizations and used by automotive students across the world.

He has taught college students at all levels and always helped them achieve the best results. Tom was also a Staff Tutor and is currently an Associate Lecturer for the Open University. His post-graduate education in all aspects of technology and education, as well as many years of practical experience, has given him a broad base from which to approach and teach this interesting, yet challenging subject.

As a Fellow of the Institute of the Motor Industry, a Member of the Institute of Road Transport Engineers and the Society of Automotive Engineers, he keeps in contact with the latest technologies and innovations across all aspects of this fascinating industry.

As well as publishing over 20 textbooks, Tom has created amazing support materials and eLearning courses. Source: Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems.

Introduction to Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems

One of the things that I find most interesting about automotive technology is how it advances and changes. It is also interesting that ideas from many years ago often return to favour.

In this Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems Second Edition Edited by Tom Denton book, I have therefore concentrated on core technologies, in other words how things work, rather than giving details about specific vehicles or manufacturers.

However, I have included some examples of existing and upcoming technologies as a guide to how things are changing.

This book is the first in the ‘Automotive Technology: Vehicle Maintenance and Repair’ series:

  • Automobile Mechanical
  • Electrical Systems
  • Automobile Electrical and Electronic Systems
  • Automobile Advanced Fault Diagnosis
  • Electric and Hybrid Vehicles
  • electrical busbar system
  • Alternative Fuel Vehicles.

This book: Automobile Mechanical and Electrical Systems, concentrates on essential knowledge and will cover everything you need to get started with your studies, no matter what qualification (if any) you are working towards. When you want more detailed information, you can move on to the other books. I hope you find the content useful and informative

Main systems

No matter how we categorize them, all vehicle designs have similar major components and these operate in much the same way. The four main areas of a vehicle are the engine, electrical, chassis and transmission systems.

inlet manifold and is fired in each cylinder in turn. The resulting expanding gases push on pistons and connecting rods which are on cranks, just like a cyclist’s legs driving the pedals, and this makes a crankshaft rotate.

The pulses of power from each piston are smoothed out by a heavy flywheel. Power leaves the engine through the flywheel, which is fitted on the end of the crankshaft and passes to the clutch. The spent gases leave via the exhaust system.


The electrical system covers many aspects such as lighting, wipers and instrumentation. A key component is an alternator (Fig. 1.18) which, driven by the engine, produces electricity to run the electrical systems and charge the battery. A starter motor takes energy from the battery to crank over and start the engine.

Electrical components are controlled by a range of switches. Electronic systems use sensors to sense conditions and actuators to control a variety of things – in fact, on modern vehicles, almost everything.
