Default FSM - Factory Service Manual, GM Cadillac


A brief general description for those that dont know.

The going rate is between $20 to $45 for a used manual (FSM),
up to $120 for a new one.

For the shade tree mechanic, a MUST !


===========================

General Motors factory service service manual for the Cadillac Seville STS and SLS. More than x,xxxx pages of repair instructions written by General Motors.

using a chilton is like trying to eat a sirloin steak with a plastic knife and fork. its doable, but often lets you down.

Hey guys, can anyone point me in the right direction for a manual, i have a 88 Brougham D'elegance... thanks!!

Nevermind i found one on ebay really easily... so how good are these manuals, they explain everything well, luckily i found one for my car for only $10 so i already purchased it because even if its a coloring book for $10 who really cares!! lol , i hope its really easy to follow and im able to fix any issues that may come up because i want to keep this car in perfect condition!!!
