    Default manuals

    Can someone tell me what the difference is between a shop manual and a service manual?
    Thanks.

    Ralphie, Welcome to CAC. What you want is a Factory Service Manual (FSM). This would be the GM service manual for your model and year. There may be more than just one factory manual. (i.e. 1988 vette has 2, 1989 has 1 with suppliment). These are also known as service shop manuals. You can also find non factory service manuals from other sources like CDs and generic (Haynes for example). Hope this helps.
