Why The Auto Emissions Bible?

If you are a repair specialist, knowing how to properly test and repair vehicle emission failures can create more business, add to profits, and raise customer satisfaction levels.

The Auto Emissions Bible shows why the Check Engine Light comes on in the first place, and explains what it takes to turn the light off in 1996 and newer OBD II vehicles—and keep it off.

Auto repair professionals will also learn how to properly sample and interpret gas analyzer readings, and make repairs to reduce harmful emissions in areas that subject vehicles to tailpipe tests.

There's a lot here for motorists, too. Learn how your car is tested, how to prepare your car for the test, and how to identify common maintenance items that cause most failures.

Authors Sam Bell and Ralph Birnbaum have a combined 80 years of auto repair experience.

Sam owns a premium repair facility, The Lusty Wrench, in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and is a regular contributor to Motor magazine. Voted 2010 Cengage ASE Technician of the Year, he also teaches Ohio 1 Emissions Courses for auto repair professionals.

Ralph has written over two dozen training courses and books, co-authoring the award winning Getting to Know OBD II with Jerry "G" Truglia.
