If you are planning to keep this scar,
I highly recommend CHILTON's
fine line of car books. It accurately
details motor specs/some electrical
and some interrior configs. I had bought
4 or 5 of these books and I swear
by them.
I have torn apart many engines
and found CHILTON a source
I can't do without.
Available at most quality
autoparts stores.

Skip the Chilton, it's a table prop for any serious repairs.

Spend the money on a $25 Alldata.com subscription (good for a year), or do what I did---find a used factory book on Ebay. Used is just as good as new and you'll save some money.

FatCat: I paid $15 for the GM manual for my Cavalier on Ebay. A Chilton vehicle specific book is 12 bucks and is BASED on (but leaves out half the information from) the OEM book. .

Just for general info, we have both Alldata and Michell on demand at the shop..I use both every day, and basically, Alldata is quicker to get around in and usually, quicker for finding code definitions ect..Mitchell's pictures are better/clearer, and thier wiring diagram's beat Alldata's to pieces..So it depends on what sort of info I want, depends on what system I use..But without a doubt, if I'm tracing wires, Mitchell's it!!
