This major revision of  Light Duty Diesels 2nd Edition , was published in October of 2020. This book targets ASE A9 certification and covers all of its task competencies. The contents feature relevant hands-on shop maintenance and repair procedures. In addition, it covers the MY 2020 engine management systems used by the big three domestic OEMs.  

The joint project I worked on with Ross Froat of the ATA in updating the TMC Preventive Maintenance Training Guidelines Manual was published in the Spring of 2020. The new edition correlates shop maintenance procedures to TMC Recommended Practices (RPs). It emphasizes the value to fleets in adhering to Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards (VRMS) guidelines. VRMS streamlines all elements of fleet service routines from optimizing parts inventories to categorizing repair standards.

My current project has a working title of Electric Vehicle Technology. The objective will be to study high voltage electric drivetrains from a technician’s perspective. It will address hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric, battery-electric, and fuel cell electric drivetrains.
