Anyone who has any involvement with engines will have, at some stage or other, encountered a failure of a component and been placed in a position of having to diagnose the cause. However, few have the unique combination of exposure to the manufacture and testing of engines and components, plus a lifetime of experience in solving the most difficult of problems, as has Brian McCarthy.

In Engine Post-Mortem, Brian McCarthy has sought to share his experience and knowledge in laymans terms. After distinguishing between failures and defects, he explains how and what evidence should be gathered, not only to determine the cause, but to substantiate any claims that may be made. From there, he begins to explain how to analyse failures, with chapters on each of an engine`s major components, including pistons, rings, cylinders, valves, bearings, crankshaft and gaskets.
