In case you are not aware of the Chilton’s Auto Repair Database that WCPL subscribes to, it is a great free resource for patrons. To get the best use of this database, you will need to know the year, make, and model of the vehicle you are dealing with. Once those details are selected, Chilton will offer you information for that vehicle’s repair, maintenance, or its bulletins and recalls.
This resource, of course, could be used in any variety of ways: when doing car repair or maintenance at home, when researching a particular model before purchasing, keeping up to date on issues known with your vehicle’s model.
At WCPL, we appreciate having the online Chilton database as there are far too many makes and models of vehicles on the roads nowadays to have an updated book for each one.
The staff at the Reference Desk are always happy to help you print any particular section of information from the Chilton’s Auto Repair Database at the computers upstairs.
Additionally, this database also has several ASE test prep quizzes on its website for those working toward an auto mechanic certification.
