Chilton's Automotive Database

Oldsmar Library has added a new database - Chilton Library - to the list of free databases available from the Resource tab of the library's website. The Chilton Library can be used from a library computer or remotely from your home computer. You will need your PPLC library card's barcode number when accessing the database from home.

Chilton's is an automotive site that offers diagnostic photographs, wiring diagrams and repair procedures as well as technical service bulletins & recall information for cars & light trucks.

Choosing from the drop down box for year, make and model of the vehicle you are researching, click on the particular subject on the left for more in-depth information. Database highlights are the ability to print your results and a help section for navigating tips and tools.

Please call the Reference Desk @ (813) 749-1181 for questions about this or any other library database.
