I have a Chiltons or suchlike. It might also have a schematic which would
you the answers you need. If you cant find it online, I would consider
a page or two for you.
Well - I use All Data, but primarily for the up to date TSB's. The
subscription for the first car is $24.95 per year and $14.95 for each car
after that. And... it's only a one year subscription. That makes the cost
quite a bit higher than a Haynes manual. I've found the Haynes manuals to
be very useful for most repairs over the years so I freely recommend them to
99% of the DIY'ers out there. Usenet makes a good forum for those few
questions that Haynes won't address - as does a simple conversation with the
dealer or a mechanic.
I haven't looked - does anyone know if the All Data subscription allows you
to download the entire collection of information for the car you are
subscribed for? I'm suspecting they don't but it never hurts to ask...
Well, yes you can, but not with one click of the button as far as I know.
You can, with a little patience, download and print every sheet (at least
all I have tried). But it takes time.
I have been a subscriber for a couple of years, and access to the TSB's,
etc, may the cost worth it to me.
I do keep a paper copy of areas of particular interest to me.
Some of the Haynes and Chiltons are pretty poor, but they are certainly
better than nothing.
and get the real deal service manuals. There is no substitute. Cost
for most service manuals is around $130. At today's garage prices, if
the manuals allow you to do even one repair job yourself it will pay
for itself. Haynes, Chilton's etc. do not hold a candle to the
genuine factory service manuals. They have procedures, testing flow
charts and all kinds of detailed and specific information. The last
set I bought for my Camaro is 4.5 inches thick spread over three
No doubt, the factory service manuals are best, if you need the depth.
If you just need a peek at a schematic, there are cheaper ways.
Public libraries are an often forgotten source of good service manuals.
Some have rather good professional service sets.
