CKPL Offers Free Automotive Repair Help Online

When it comes to auto repair, "do-it-yourselfers," students and automotive enthusiasts have trusted Chilton repair manuals for years. Chatham-Kent Public Library now offers these authoritative manuals to library users in a simple, online resource that's accessible 24/7.

Regardless of skill level, ChiltonLibrary supplies a solution to all your vehicle problems. Repair, maintenance and specification tables provide critical data on thousands of domestic and imported models of cars and light trucks from 1940 onward. Step-by-step procedures guide users through brakes, engine, chassis, electrical, drive train, steering, suspension and all other systems. Likewise, close-up photographs, illustrations, videos and animated graphics visually illustrate step-by-step procedures, simplifying even the most complicated tasks. 

Beyond repairs, ChiltonLibrary also contains valuable information for anyone who operates a vehicle. It includes more than 85,000 Technical Service Bulletins (TSB) for users to see if any service bulletins or recalls have been issued for their vehicles. Users can also learn what service has been recommended by their vehicle's manufacturer using ChiltonLibrary's maintenance schedules. The content available on ChiltonLibrary is updated on a monthly basis, ensuring the most current information available.
