Best Books for Automotive Engineering and Combustion

In summary, the conversation is about a student in their final year of mechanical engineering who is interested in combustion. They have some knowledge of electronics from part-time work in television repair but are looking for books to help them understand the theory and techniques related to automotive engineering, particularly in cars. The recommended books are "Haywood - Internal Combustion Engine Fundamentals" and "The Bosch Handbook." The student is grateful for the recommendation and is interested in hearing about other books in the same field.

hello everybody here in that great,full&useful forum,
well--im a student in the final year of mechanical engineering,and i was really interested in the whole courses we had taken at school related to the subject of comustion,and i know abit about the techniques of the electronic boeards and electricity,according to part time work i did while school in television repair,which helped to know about electronics,so that was imperical knowledge with televesions-:)-and theoretically knowledge about MECHANICAL ENGINEERING,(not really completely thearetical)but still don't know a lot of techniques and imperical info which I've found its really imp to know to help u at work,so my question about:

what is the best books u advice me to have for ICE field?help me understanding the theory and the techniques about the automative engineering(cars&trucks-etc)and especially cars(electrically&mechanically if allowed).
just give name of the book or the editor.
thanks in advance.
