RockAuto Wiki


This site contains repair advice, part installation tips and customer comments about experiences with particular parts. You don't have to be a RockAuto customer to use it -- anyone may create or add to pages.

The easiest way to find information is to use the RockAuto catalog. When you look up a car and part type in the catalog, you'll see an "Advice" button that links to the relevant wiki page (or, if no one has created a page for that car/part yet, will allow you to create one).

When should I change a page?

Change the page if you know there is a factual error or you you have more information to add.


When should I leave a comment?

Comments are useful for relating personal experiences, showing agreement with what someone else has written, or any other thoughts which aren't really repair advice but still may be interesting to others working on the same type of car and/or the same part. This wiki is not a forum, though, and no one is monitoring individual pages on a regular basis, so please don't use comments to ask questions.
