Description
This book is aimed at the driver who wants to do his or her own basic car maintenance and servicing without the need for in-depth mechanical knowledge, or a technical manual. It covers areas such as oil, brakes, tyres, transmission, electrics, etc, allowing the owner to address the most regularly serviced items without forking out for additional costs. Illustrated with full colour photographs throughout, and featuring clear, easy-to-follow instructions, this book is a must-have for all drivers.

Synopsis
With fuel costs, car tax and parking charges forever rising, drivers are looking for ways to cut the cost of keeping their car on the road. Fortunately there is one thing you can reduce: the cost of servicing and maintaining your car. With garage prices continuing to rise by the hour, it makes sense to learn the basics for yourself – and you don’t have to be a mechanic to do this.
Here’s where this invaluable book can help, by showing you how to do basic servicing and maintenance. Not only will you have the satisfaction of doing otherwise-expensive jobs yourself, you will also have learnt something along the way – and recouped the cost of this book (and a bit more besides) with your first oil change.

Car Mechanics on Air Power

“As well as being what we humans need to breathe, air is an enormous asset to us in our struggles with motor cars — and, come to that, machinery of all kinds. It has many advantages over other forms — it’s far more versatile than electricity, safer (you can’t drag a power cable through water) and a rotating air-powered tool delivers its maximum fore at stall speed. Air tools are also far better able to withstand workshop knocks, bangs and other abuse than any other type of power – stalling an electric drill constantly will wreck it, whereas an air drill will be totally undamaged.Best of all, air is now very, very affordable. You can buy a compressor that’ll cope with most DIY workshop duties for under £300, and if you spend double that you’ll probably get something with similar output to the compressor in many small commercial workshops! Tools, too, are affordable – no dearer than their electric counterparts. This book is compiled mainly from an in-depth series on air power published in Car Mechanics magazine during 2002 and 2003. The series covers all aspects and was extremely well put together by James Stanbury – whose clear explanations make even the most complicated aspects of the subject easy to understand. We’ve also included a number of product tests to help you choose which compressor and tools to buy to suit your needs, plus a couple of earlier articles covering detailed aspects. Whether you are a DIY beginner looking to install a basic setup to help you with servicing and routine repairs, or someone more experienced looking to do more, you’ll find all that you need to know, and much more, within this book. And if you do want to explore the subject even more, Car Mechanics magazine regularly carries in-depth product tests and other essential information on air power.”

ROYAL TRAIN

From the author of “The Royal Yacht Britannia”, here is the inside story of Royal travel by train. There is in fact no single Royal Train, but rather a set of rail vehicles that can be assembled into whatever configuration is required, depending on which member of the Royal Family is travelling. Brian Hoey examines every aspect of the Royals’ favourite form of transport, including the rolling stock, the locomotives, the costs, operating routines, refreshments – and the decor in the Queen’s personal saloon.
