        What is Chilton?

        If you’ve just stumbled across this thread you might be wondering what the big deal is, what is chilton? Chilton books are step by step manuals to repair every aspect of a vehicle.

        Chiltons are great books and I highly recommend them! There is a ton of information in the Chiltons that you can’t find anywhere else. And if you’re mechanically inclined these books will take your knowledge to the next level. The best thing about Chiltons (compared to Haynes) is that they include color pictures and diagrams for everything!

        They cover how to fix both foreign and domestic cars/trucks . Another nice feature about this series is that it has five different levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced and each level covers more and more complicated repairs (for example: the first book talks about replacing tires – Intermediate covers alignments).

      Just a Note- we received threats of legal action from Chilton if we fail to remove this post.

      Currently we are not aware of Any laws in the United States Prohibiting linking to a public site, it is our understanding that linking cannot constitute infringement because the computer server of the linking web-site does not copy or otherwise process the content of the linked-to site. We are simply providing a list of Known resources.

      Is anyone aware of ANY Laws what-so-ever prohibiting Linking to a Public Library??!!!

      hello thank you. I telling you I just went to that Michigan elibrary site looking to check out chilton free manuals and that access is shut down due to excessive unauthorized out of state users. they no longer accept library card or driver’s license #.

      now they track your IP location and if you’re not in the state forget it.

      so check it out and change your website accordingly. thank you, Kai
