ASE Test Prep Manual A3, Automotive Manual Drivetrains & Axles
by Motorage, Most recent edition

We Sell Only the Newest Edition that is Published Today.  We purchase direct from MotorAge and sell hundreds of the ASE test Prep Manuals every week.  Anytime there is a change in the manuals content we return old copies in exchange for new editions.

The Motor Age Self-Study Guide for the A3 Manual Drivetrains & Axles ASE Test contains:

  • Tips on preparing for and taking the ASE test.
  • The A3 ASE Test Task List, which lists the knowledge that a technician must have to pass the A3 ASE test.
  • Extensive Clutch, Manual Transmission/Transaxle, Driveshaft/Halfshaft, Universal/CV-Joint, Rear-Wheel Drive Axle and Four-Wheel Drive/All-Wheel Drive diagnostic information, symptom descriptions and probable causes, repair information, detailed disassembly, cleaning, inspection, repair, adjustment and assembly procedures.
  • A Practice Test, with all questions written in the ASE style. The answers to the Practice Test questions contain thorough explanations for each answer.
  • A comprehensive Glossary, including all automatic transmission/transaxle-related terms used in the Study Guide.

In addition to the easy-to-read text, the Motor Age A3 Manual Drivetrain & Axles Self-Study Guide contains dozens of useful illustrations, and like all Motor Age Self-Study Guides, it is spiral bound, which allows the pages to lie flat for ease of use. You ll also find the Motor Age A3 Manual Drivetrain & Axles Self-Study Guide to be a handy reference manual that you can use on the job after you ve taken the ASE test.
