Home >> About ALLDATA Information >> Research Vehicle Issues
  Use as a research tool. Before purchasing your next vehicle or tackling any repair, is the leading provider of research information including Technical Service Bulletins, Recalls, and Factory Maintenance Schedules with Procedures.  
  Using Technical Service Bulletins      

Our Detailed Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) are processed straight from the factory, updated regularly, and often cover problems that can be hard to determine. Our detailed Service Bulletins include the full description, repair procedures, and in most cases, the actual letter from the manufacture. This information can be used to both research potential vehicle problems, and be used as a repair or warranty guideline.

Service bulletin content varies in severity. TSBs can cover hard-to-start engines and transmission issues along with those that cover slight body or interior imperfections. TSBs outline updated service procedures and troubleshooting strategies, or offer hints for installing something as simple as a front license plate holder.

  Using Recall Notices    
  In addition to TSBs, includes Recall Notices. Recalls are usually issued when a vehicle has a safety or emission problem. Over the years, Recalls have been issued by various manufacturers to cover defects or problems with just about every vehicle system.

When you find a Recall notification for your vehicle, bring it to the dealer or authorized repair shop as soon as possible. If you are not the original vehicle owner, you may not receive a Recalls Notice.
