Alldata Online Automotive Manual Review

is an online automotive repair manual I have been using for quite some time now and I must confess I give it a 2 thumbs up. If you have any vehicle between the years 1982 and 2004 Alldata will have everything under the sun that was ever written about that vehicle.

The only models not supported by Alldata is North American Honda and BMW who asked not to be included.

So what kind of information does
  • Technical service bulletins
  • Factory Recalls
  • Tune up and repair specifications
  • Diagrams and repair instructions
  • Factory repair times
  • Diagnostic trouble codes and how to troubleshoot them
  • Fluid capacities and specifications
  • Torque specs and more!

So what about those in print manuals we are so used to? I personally do not use them any more because of the convenience of Alldata being available online 24 hours a day from any computer.

All information can be easily printed out to take with you when making repairs. The biggest advantage is Alldata updates information every three months to stay current.

So for the Mechanic on the go and car owners I highly recommend:
The Alldata Online Repair Manual

Hi John,

had a general question in obtaining mechanical/electrical data to a 1993 Carpenter Coach RE (I think) with a detroit 6V92, 96K miles on the odometer. Nothing came with it and am not having much luck finding any info online. Thanks for your time.

also, if you have any suggestions for an inexpensive new/used parts source would be great. thanks.

I would never want to miss out any opportunity to read out your contents.

Fred, Carpenter is hard to find information for. We use Thomas and International only. sorry I can't help. Parts may be accessible in the auto wreckers.
