The knowledge you will gain from reading a repair manual for your Nissan or Datsun car, will be well worth the time and money spent.
If you are an experienced do-it-yourselfer, you will find torque specifications and troubleshooting charts to help you solve pesky problems. And if you are a new DIY mechanic, you'll find step-by step-instructions for properly servicing or just maintaining your car.
The Chilton and Haynes manuals have exploded views of most of the major components in the car, including how to disassemble or reassemble them. You'll find wiring diagrams, close-up photographs, specifications, troubleshooting charts — all designed to help you zero in on your task.
Maybe you'd prefer to leave the major repairs to a professional mechanic. You can use the information in the repair manual to become knowledgable about your Nissan or Datsun, so you can understand more readily the terminology and processes of those repairs.
If you've never serviced your car and would like to learn, a Chilton or Haynes manual will be a handy guide to have.
