So I was wondering for a list of good diy diagnostic, repair softwares (not obd).

I am aware of Autodata, Vivid and Mitchell on Demand.

What else do you know? I am also looking for a software that will allow me to see every piece of specific engine, virtually dissemble it and such.

Most of these are manufacturer specific and not shared with anyone other than approved service centres, so I'm not sure whether you will get many useful answers to this one. – Rory Alsop Mar 11 '12 at 12:50

If you have a Hyundai, they make all of their repair procedures, schematics, etc. available at (you must view this in IE btw) - I haven't seen this type of data available for free from any other manufacturers though.

This site has really nice auto repair videos for car repair for your exact model: - it's for basic stuff like headlight bulbs, cabin air filters, etc., but the videos are very helpful and free.

Check the website of your local library, often they have a subscription to pay sites that are free to access if you enter your library car number.
