Remote Access   In-house Access


With more than 45 years of information on auto tear-downs provided in step-by-step procedures, engine, chassis, electrical, drive train, routine maintenance, suspension work and more is made easier for mechanics of any experience level. Photos, illustrations and repair procedures help to simplify even the most arduous tasks.

Powerful features include:

  • Domestic and Import vehicle information through the current model year — updates monthly!
  • Improved search functionality — users can leverage the ‘nested tree’ menu or conduct a keyword search from the same page
  • Better printability — smaller content chunks means users can easily print only the information they need versus an entire section
  • Clearer navigation: headings are now alphabetically arranged and consistent throughout the content with a ‘breadcrumb trail’ at the top of every page
  • Access the information you need quickly with individual tabs for repair, maintenance or recall/Technical Service Bulletins information that is only one click away
  • ‘Trouble Codes’ to help users easily identify the problem with their vehicle are now easily accessed (today’s computerized systems provide trouble codes but no explanation of what that code is)

Finding Information

Searching is easy. Users simply select the year, make and model of the desired car from the provided pull-down menus. From there, the do-it-yourselfer may select from the subject/category menus until they arrive at the repair/service/maintenance procedure needed.
