Looking for info - Auto Labor Hours Guide

Hi,

we have all seen that mechanics look up the labor hours for a job, like the book will say 3 hours to do a water pump. I have seen them use CD's.

I want that information at my fingertips!

What are the names of the most popular auto labor hours guides????

thanks!

Motor's labor guide is another common one. Its allways good to have two references becasue labor times vary between the two.http://www.motor.com/

They have Mitchell at the San Bernadino County libraries on the computers there, and it's free (you just have to get a card) but I heard that only one person in the entire network can use it at a time. I've used it three or four times in the afternoon and not had a problem yet. The OC county librariy might be worth a look.
