Focus of the revision
For this new edition, most of all the chapters “powertrain” and “operating fluids” were completely revised. Besides conventional types of transmissions for motor vehicles driven by combustion engines, powertrains of hybrid and electric vehicles have also been added. As they are described in detail, the chapter is now more than twice as long as it was before. The “operating fluids” chapter was complemented by comprehensive descriptions of alternative fuels, coolants for air-conditioning systems and urea-water solutions. In addition, there is also a new chapter about different seals installed at several different locations within each vehicle. This chapter is a completely new one as there was no such chapter before. Accordingly, the contents added deal with latest developments regarding automotive technologies.
