I Need To Replace The Starter In My Truck, But The Chilton's Manual For My Vehicle Is Checked Out. Do You Have Another Way I Can Find Auto Repair Instructions?

Yes, the library has a database called the Auto Repair Reference Center that provides repair information from the Chilton Total Car Care Series. It covers vehicles from 1945 to the present, both domestic and imports. This info includes repair instructions, wiring schematics, technical bulletins, and labor time estimates. You can access the ARRC in our Research & Learn section via the Alphabetical List of Databases.

We have access to a variety of standards in our Research Center. You can see a list of the available standards on this handy guide. To find the guide from our home page, go to the Research & Learn tab, then look under the Research by Subject list for the link to Standards.
