Mitchell1 DIY does not provide free auto repair manuals online, but rather provides a paid subscription service that offers online access to auto repair information for over 30,000 vehicle models from 1983 to 2014, as of 2016. Additionally, Mitchell1 DIY offers free general basic diagnostic and troubleshooting information.
The free information available on Mitchell1 DIY includes basic troubleshooting charts for common automobile problems, such as problems with starters, car air conditioning and fuel injection. The charts outline the general condition and possible cause and suggest basic corrective actions to take.
The paid subscription offers access to vehicle-specific information including up-to-date repair, maintenance, technical service and recall information. A month-long subscription to the service costs about $17, and a year-long subscription costs around $26.
