Back in March Leigh Anne wrote about the unfortunate demise of the Auto Repair Reference Center from the Power Library databases. Good news! Your patrons now have access to a new, comparable resource called Chilton Library. Chilton Library includes repair and maintenance information for vehicles going back as far as 50 years.
Also included in this resource are technical service bulletins/recalls, labor estimators, ASE Technician test prep questions, and vehicle specific maintenance schedules. How many hours of labor should I be charged for to replace the A/C compressor on my Toyota? 3.7! I think I’ll just drive with the windows down this summer.
Chilton should be a very recognizable name to anyone who does DIY auto repair. Their repair procedures are safe and accurate. More reliable than a video posted on Youtube by a person who might not know the first thing about auto repair.
