1997 SC2
Default factory service manuals

people say the Haynes manual is crap. so my question is:

where can i buy a new set of the factory service manuals for 97 SC2 DOHC.

and do they cover more then just engine/mechanical stuff? what all is covered in those? i heard they are better then the Haynes or Chilton manual and i am very willing to spend some cash for a good reference...

thanx

Under the most rigorously controlled conditions, the Saturn will do as it damn well pleases.

Check eBay, do an Internet search.

You might find what you want used at: http://www.factoryautomanuals.com/

For new, check the back of the Owners Manual, that might still be valid info (I don't know for sure).

In general, FSM are much better thatn Chiltons, Haynes, etc. the Saturn FSM is in several volumes

If you've never seen factory service manuals then a Chiltons or Haynes book will suffice. Just imagine every GM, Daimler-Chrysler, Ford, Jaguar, Ferrari, Toyota, Nissan service technician/mechanic without their company service manual. Need I ask if you or anyone would trust a dealer mechanic to work on warranty repairs on your new car? I wouldn't and no one should unless they've been trained specifically for engine, drivetrain, chassis, electrical, and electronics plus the expected updates as new models appear with new improvements requiring continuous refresh training. They may look greasy and appear like the local mechanics but some of them may have a few years experience specializing in one brand making them hard to replace.

Try https://saturn-publications.com/satu...nCategories.do for genuine factory/field service manuals. They are second to none as Chiltons/Haynes manuals pales in comparison. Expect to pay more as you get what you pay for.
