Is there a book that gives a good breakdown of the 3.1 litre engines? I would love to do some of the work that I plan to do to my vehicle myself. It's cheaper, and I guess it means more to ya. Anyways, if there is, where could I order one or pick one up?
Thanks,
Mitch

Thanks Jimmy. I found one online at helminc.com for 90 freaking dollars!! I might have to buy that one unless I find a GOOD one cheaper than that. By the way, I'm from Alabama, in Birmingham. Thanks again.

Smallvoice Im from Gulfport MS. Go with the helm book. Its the best book you can find. It is the very book that the gm mechanics use in the service shop. Its the most technical too, so if you want to know anything about your ride it will be in there. Good luck.

If you want a cheaper book you could go with the Chilton's manual for the cavalier. It is cheaper at $14.99. I found mine at K Mart but they also sell it at most Auto Parts stores and if they don't have it they can order it. Go to http://www.chiltonsonline.com for more info. I own one and it is detailed, but I have not seen the other book for $90. So I can't say which is better. The Chilton's manual covers topics like general info/maintenanc, ebody & trim, engine electrical, engine overhaul, emissions controls, fuel system, chassis electrical, drivetrain, suspension & steering, & brakes. Just thought I'd offer some insight.
