Featured Resource of the Month: Chilton Library

ArtistWorks logoIntroducing the newest library database: Chilton Library. This 24-hour on-call "mechanic" provides quick online access to repair, maintenance and service information on the most popular cars, trucks, vans and SUVs on the road today. Ford, Chrysler, GM, Honda, Toyota and numerous other makes are well-represented.

With more than 50 years of information on actual auto tear-downs provided in step-by-step procedures, work on the engine, chassis, electrical, drive train, suspension, and more is made easier for mechanics of any experience. Photos, illustrations and repair procedures help to simplify even the most arduous tasks.
