Re: Online service manuals
I posted some of these comments earlier. This summer I spend quite a bit of time on the net trying to find service manuals that I could use with an 85 CJ and a 95 XJ. I even tried international databases and may have found some manuals for free, but it didn't help that I couldn't read them in their language. I ended up at the ALLDATA website. After consideration, I decided to try their manuals. Their agreement provides for online viewing of 1 vehicle/1 engine/1year for $24.00. and a second car/engine/year arrangement of $16-18. I downloaded a very large number of pages on my vehicles and created extensive manuals. The later 95 model webpages and information were very, very detailed. The 85 manual was just detailed, but still far superior to Haynes and Chilton manuals - I suppose that is not saying much. ALLDATA is a much better buy and is car specific as opposed to needing to sort through a whole range of information to find car specific information. The chassi and engine writing diagrams were excellent. So were a number of the engine repair diagrams and instructions. I encourage you to give their website a look and explore the two examples they provide. I found the examples they provide for viewing reflective of the best examples of what they provide while the actual information on particular models fell somewhat short of the examples. It also appeared that some pages were in construction, i.e., relay wriring diagrams, etc. Mindbender
PS: I don't work for them , but if someone from ALLDATA reads this and [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]wants to send me cash or a trip, I'll take it.
