    Best service manual for DIY work?

    Hey all,

    I'd like to pick up a really thorough, accurate GM service manual to allow me to work on my new 2001 TA WS6 convertible for miscellaneous maintenance and break/fix issues. I've seen a heck of a lot of choices, and am not really sure where to start.

    Can you guys please help guide me toward the right product?

    Thanks in advance!

    The best from my knowledge is Helms. I had the whole set for my old 98z28. The books together are probably a foot or so tall when stacked together.

    I use alldatadiy.com, $16 for a yearly membership, but so far it's far better then the books the auto parts stores sell.

    +1 for the factory service manuals. Through book vendors you can generally find them for just over $100. Substantial savings versus buying them from the publisher.

    +2 on the factory service manuals, mine came in handy a few times. I picked mine up at GM Carslile for 40 bucks! I couldnt get the money out of my pocket fast enough. I also use Shop Key from Snap-on. We have it at work so its free for me, some good info on there too.
