    If you want the best/most complete available helminc.com sells the GM factory service manuals. They're year specific, huge, and $135. Every once in a while they put them on sale for 1/2 price - or you can look for a used set on ebay.

    I use haynes manuals and even though they aren't the most accurate and complete book they work ok as a reference. I have a couple chilton books too and it seems like you need to combine the both to have one decent book. Honestly, I rarely even need to look at them anymore especially for the cars I own. The last thing I tried which was a pretty cool set up is alldatadiy.com. It sucks you have to pay by the car but the info there is extremely detailed and I would recommend it.

    The shop manuals are great for solving problems that are hard to figure out- If you havent checked one out do so- you will want one if you do.

    Of course man no problem- the only thing though is the manuals are year specific and I have a 98-but maybe what you want to know wont be any different from my year. I will have it for you by tomorrow-I think we might have a scanner and I might can scan what you need. I will get back to ya.
