This Product Service Training 190 page book is can be considered as GMs OBD I Generation II (a) as it covers the upgrade components from previous production vehicles. It starts with Computer Command Control (C3) (OBD) abbreviations, a body code chart, engine identification, and special tools. This is followed by the two sections Full Function and the Min T systems.
Section A covers the full function system in 5 parts;
Part 1 is general diagnostic information and system performance checks to verify that the OBD system is capable of testing.
Part 2 covers the basic driveabilty symptoms that may or may not have trouble codes (DTC) associated with them. These are the typical complaints a customer might have like stalling or hard starting and the suggested items to check that can save the mechanic time.
Part 3 is diagnostic flow charts for those complaints with stored trouble codes (DTC). These charts guide the mechanic in proper testing in sequence.
Part 4 is diagnostic flow charts on related components without stored trouble codes (DTC). These include the proper testing prior to replacing an ECM (PCM OBD II). Some of these were later incorporated into the diagnostic of the system in OBD II. Using these flow charts can not only save time, but eliminate frustration and expenses from replacing known good parts.
Part 5 is the ECM (PCM OBD II) terminal identification by engine size and identification code.
Section B covers the Min T system of the T car (Chevrolet Chevette and Pontiac T1000);
Part 6 is system diagnosis ..see Part 1 above
Part 7 is diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) see Part 2 above
Part 8 is diagnostic flow charts for those complaints with stored trouble codes (DTC). These charts guide the mechanic in proper testing in sequence
Part 9 is the ECM (PCM OBD II) terminal identification
