Product Service Training Manuals General Motors

GM product service training manuals are far superior to almost any other manufacturer. The reasons are many, but suffice to say that GM was the lead automotive company in the world for a long time, as such they attracted the best talent and engineered their systems from the start to supply more data. Even today that is true as many of the specifications, testing procedures, component names and even network communications were pioneered by GM. GM adopted OBD diagnostics first for the1980 model year production vehicles.

These books were never distributed outside of the manufacturers product service training channel. Some of these books are extremely old but the information is as relavent to todays vehicles as when the books were written. We have had them cleaned up to make your reading easier.
