Chilton Library is an online instruction resource for do-it-yourself auto repair as well as a guide for students preparing for the ASE exam.
Chilton allows you to look up a specific year, make, and model vehicle and find detailed illustrated repair instructions specific to that vehicle.
In some cases, Chilton offers instructional videos showing how to perform common repairs.
If you’re not sure you want to tackle a repair yourself, Chilton also provides labor estimates for specific repairs. You can combine these estimates with parts costs to determine how much you should expect to pay at a repair shop.
The scheduled maintenance information in Chilton gives you a clear sense of what part replacements and inspections should be performed regularly in order to keep a vehicle in sound working order.
If you’re looking to take the ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) test, the sample questions included in Chilton can help you get ready.
Because these are sample questions, Chilton gives you a quick way to check your answers.
As an online resource, Chilton is able to stay up to date in a way that printed resources never could. Chilton provides regular updates including repair bulletins, recalls, and information on even the latest model cars.
