This new edition of the highly successful Auto Repair For Dummies adds more focus on fuel injection systems and removes increasingly obsolete information about carburetors. This up-to-date edition also adds coverage of hybrid cars and other alternatively fueled vehicles. A major reorganization will put repair advice in a separate chapter immediately following general information about each system to keep like information closer together. Other new information includes troubleshooting problems that need an authorized mechanic and updated schedules for things like tune-ups and oil changes.
