Most of us home mechanics have seen it a thousand times, searching online non stop for a reliable source of information to repair our cars, we troll through forums and search results by often find dead ends of rubbish opinions, nothing of true value to us and what we need to repair cars ourselves properly with genuine advice.
Then there are the people on sales sites like ebay who try to sell manuals which you can not even sample and just trust that the information is correct, wanting something like $10 or $20 for a CD ROM which your laptop likely doesn’t even have fitted anymore to provide you with advice.
Personally I found myself in this situation many times, however through all searches we wish for a pot of gold at the end of the tunnel, and if you don’t get scammed in the process, reliable genuine information is available if you look in the right places.
