Keeping your vehicle well maintained can extend its life and help save money on costly repairs. Fort Bend County Libraries (FBCL) has an online resource that illustrates basic maintenance steps that drivers can manage themselves to keep their vehicle performing optimally.
FBCL Adult Services librarians at the Cinco Ranch Branch Library will present an online, introductory demonstration of the “Chilton DIY Online Auto-Repair Manuals Library” on Tuesday, January 12. This pre-recorded video demonstration – which will be available on the FBCL website on the scheduled date — can be viewed at any time from the comfort and safety of home.
The Chilton DIY Library provides exclusive photographs, diagnostics, step-by-step repair procedures, wiring diagrams, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) maintenance schedules, recalls and Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) for automobiles and light trucks in one easy-to-use website. Domestic and import vehicle information is updated monthly. A vehicle Selector lets you search thousands of combinations of year, make and model covering the most popular vehicles of the past 30 years, as well as coverage of specialty models.
The demonstration is free and open to the public. This how-to tutorial can be viewed on the Fort Bend County Libraries website – www.fortbend.lib.tx.us – by clicking on the “Classes and Events” tab, selecting “Virtual Programs,” and finding the virtual “class” on the date listed.
