Default Service Manuals

I managed to get hold of the service manuals for $20!!!!!!!!

Now I just need to find me a scantool and brainwash some of the gearheads to move to indy so I can learn my bonne inside out even in my sleep.

With those manuals.. a little time to read and a bit of work..you'll do fine.

I've been to Indy.. not really where I'm gonna settle down. Ever been to CT/MA? We have quite a few members per square mile

We're pretty good on the Bonneville mechanics. There'* me, 1337ssei, his dad, and my friend James. You're doing really well with your car, so there'* no reason to worry. Read through those manuals, let me have a look through them, and you'll be just fine.

With you, 1337ssei and me, we already have 4 Bonnevilles! That'* pretty good for Indianapolis. Plus, we have so many "unregistered" people driving our cars around, so help get them into the forums. I believe strongly that if everyone in Indianapolis who drives a Bonneville registers here, we would have far too much Indy activity. I see a Bonneville wherever I look. Try to spend a day not seeing a Bonneville, and for that matter, one that doesn't look like someone attacked it and covered it in feces. Those are here, too, but they don't count.

I've never been that far north before, never had a reason. But to read the posts from the members there, you members make it sound fun.

While my car does seem to be running fine..there'* just something saying she'* not quite right. It could just be me (probably is) but that'* just a feeling I have.

Also back in high school, I wanted to take shop class but was advised against it. So for me, kicking around the engine with some buddies and drinks (whatever each prefers) sounds like fun times to me.

With so many walking libraries around, the tinkering chromosones are acting up. Maybe I should convert the garage back into a garage and have a haven for my car.

Yea it'* impossible to to go a day without seeing a bonneville here unless I stay inside and avoid windows. If we could get all bonne drivers registered and active, I really think we could take the crown for most members.

While I do get the concept of club, it'* just not in me to bother people to help me. I'm more of I'll come watch and join in and learn that way.

You should get a scantool if you think there'* something up with your engine. Willwren mentioned the Actron 9115 with the GM cartridge and an OBDII cable. Am I right on this?

Also, I forgot if you changed your plug wires. Now that you have the service manuals, do you have a multimeter handy to check the ohms of the ignition coils? I can't see what I'm typing right now because there'* a dog in my face. It'* so wrong.

The items you mentioned are wishlisted for now. I'll most likely get a multimeter this weekend or next weekend. Still waiting on my manuals to arrive in the mail.

I'm not saying there'* something definitely wrong...just have a feeling she could be better. It could just be because she still needs doghouse work and steering column repair.

I have no doubt I can take her on a roadtrip, I just like for everything to look and work as it should in order for me to feel ok.

You sound so much like me. I just bought my first Bonneville and she'* beautiful, inside and out. 'Course there'* a little here and a little there, but it'* like chunks o'stuff in the chili... not sure what they are but I know I'm gonna love 'em.

I want mine to sound exactly right. She'* got to feel exactly right... if she doesn't, then I'm not doing my job.

I get my manual in two weeks and i can't wait.

No, he would have mentioned the Actron CP9110 scanner. For '93 Bonnevilles and earlier, you don't need the CP9115 cable, just the 12 pin OBDI cable that usually comes with it (usually from eBay).

You would need the GM CP9111 cartridge also.

Ah the sun is shining on this dog'* tale...just won an auction for a scanner with the cartridge (and 2 others) for $35.

So I managed to get the manuals and scantool both for under $100 shipped.

Just need for everything to arrive so I can start learning my car better.

Obviously I'll be happy to help out local members in need of a scan or who need to look through the manuals.
