Whether you work on vehicles for fun or out of necessity – you’re going to love this library resource, and it’s accessible from your home computer or another internet-accessible device. If you are an avid user of the Auto Repair Reference Center (ARRC) you will want to keep reading – AutoMate will replace ARRC beginning Aug. 1, 2018.
Maybe you enjoy restoring cars as a hobby or maybe you are one of those lucky fellas who has what’s sometimes called a “clunker”. To use a personal favorite that my family often used when referring to a real gem of a junker – a “chitty-chitty-bang-bang” alluding to the sounds the car makes while driving down the road.
Whatever you call your vehicle, it’s your baby. It gets you from point A - to - well hopefully it gets you to point B - so you have to take care of it, right?
AutoMate provides step-by-step repair procedures, wiring diagrams, component location diagrams, maintenance schedules, diagnostic trouble codes, and much more!
AutoMate covers vehicles from 1974-present. If you are looking to tinker with a vehicle that pre-dates 1974 – you will need to come into your local library and access the Mitchell ProDemand database which covers 1960-present.
