    I was just wondering if anyone knows of anywhere online that I may be able to locate an electronic copy of a Hanes or Chilton manual or some of that nature. I really don't want to spend money on a book that I don't need if for some reason I decide not to buy this car.

    paul erickson May 11, 2010 claims they have factory repair manuals, they have nothing of the sort, this is not to say some experts may have manuals, we do, but we work from home and in most cases have a small library. Experts are not employed by, we help free of charge as much as we can with the general automotive knowledge we have learned while working as auto technicians, specific test values, repair procedures and illustrations are unique to each car line, these are not in most cases available to us. Thanks for using FixYa!

Im looking for auto repair manuals

At auto parts stores, Haynes Repair Manuals are priced at about $26. Public libraries often have a good number of repair manuals. A few libraries offer on-line auro repair information from, I think, Mitchells, which is good, but it's a subscription service.

Where can I get a diagram or photo of the engine compartment for a 96 Mercury Villager?

I would recommend purchasing the Haynes service manual for your vehicle. We have one in each of ours and it will answer most all of your questions and let you estimate how much a given repair will cost for labor too if you are not planning on doing your own maintenance.

You can also find them new and used on eBay or sometimes in your local library.
