Depends on the CD. Some are little more then a owners manual on CD, hardly worth the effort. I have a DVD that is very in depth. If you plan to do more then basic work, get a FSM.

X2. My son and I rebuilt a t56 transmission on a 99 T/A using the factory service manual as our primary resource. If you are doing more than just basic work, I would get the FSM.
