Working Without an Auto Repair Manual? Big Mistake

 

Ever trace a short circuit without the correct wiring diagram? Or tightened cylinder head bolts not knowing the torque specifications? Probably not. That's why having the manufacturer's auto repair information in hand's reach is so important. Whether you're an experienced automotive technician, or an owner who likes to do car maintenance and repairs on your own, the correct service and repair information can be the most important addition to your toolbox.

These systems are comprised of a good part of the manufacturer published materials. Distributers like ALLDATAdiy.com supply a large number of independent repair shops across the country with gotta-have service information, and also provide online model-specific packages for do-it-yourselfers, at reasonable prices.

Standard Manufacturer's Service Manual

 

Nobody knows a car, truck or SUV better than the manufacturer (engineers) who built it. So we want to use materials originally published by the maker of the vehicle we're working on, like the online DIY programs.


Another choice is to buy the official printed service manual direct from the manufacturer, or other sources. This is the real deal, can be somewhat expensive, but worthwhile if you plan on holding on to a vehicle long-term. The printed manuals cover only one model/model year and do not include recalls or technical service bulletins.
