Tip & How-To about Chrysler 300

The Hanes Manual: A Life Saver

The greatest tip I could ever give to anyone trying to save money on car repairs is buy the manual. Advance Auto and Auto Zone are nationwide. They sell a manual called Haynes for every car ever made. I have relied on Haynes for every car repair I have encountered. What Haynes does is tear down a model car and then put it right back together, and they take pictures during the entire process. This enables them to provide a detailed, step-by-step procedure for every repair your car needs.

Please stop in to your local auto parts supplier and ask for these manuals. They will tell you everything you need to know about your car. What kind of oil it requires, how much oil, where your battery is located, where that thingy-ma-do-hicky is that no one can seem to identify, proper tire air pressure, etc.

Once I had a VW Jetta. I had to replace the intake manifold, a project which is insane from the get-go. I bought the manual, read as I worked, was able to fix the problem and move on with my life.

They will prove an invaluable tool for you as well, I guarantee it.

where can i find a workshop manual to download for a 1991 Isuzu Rodeo


Any of the major chain auto parts stores should have these.....Pep Boys, O'Reilly's, Advance, Auto Zone.

Shouldn't run much more than $20 ( and maybe a little less). Another good source, if you don't want to spend the money to purchase one is to visit your local library.

I do this so I don't wind up buying a lot of different books for vehicles I may happen to work on. I have books for my personal vehicles, but I'll check out a manual for anyone else's car.

when check engine light stays on (1998 Malibu) is there a check list that i can do to eliminate problem


Not unless you want to spend a lot of money to replacements. Stop at one of the major auto parts stores like auto zone or advance auto and ask them to read the stored codes and they can tell you what it means and then you have the option of buying a Haynes repair manual on your vehicle and the part so you can fix the problem yourself.
