I dont think they have 'em at regular stores like wal-mart or anything, Advance Auto parts does though, thats where i got mine. www.advanceautoparts.com to find a store near you, or maybe autozone.

the one i got covers the 99-00 GA and Alero, you might need a diff. one although i wouldnt see why, anybody else know anything about the year and the book since hes got an '01?

ive been lookin for over 2yrs now for one for my 99 GAGT cant find it anywhere. I have a friend that worked for an auto parts store and his mgr said its not even available for him to order

maybe if we get enough ppl they'll print one and we can do a group buy (i wish)

I got mine from Canadian Tire via a special order (which they took forever to get!).

You can order directly through them; but it seems to be more expensive than what I paid at an auto parts store.

I can't find them either, go on eBay and order TechLine, I saw a copy for $28.00+shipping, that covers all US GM cars & trucks 1998-2005.

ahh, see, where I come from, the entire population is retarded, and I'm just following suit because I don't know how to read. In other news, my haynes manual came yesterday. It has a full section on the LIM gasket
yay...

I've checked the local NAPA, Checkers, Advance, Autozone, and the local library and there is no Grand Am manuals beyond 1998. Arrgh.... I'd rather not pay shipping, maybe i'll ask for a special order from one of the places i looked at and i might get it cheaper than having it shipped.

I'd prefer it to be in the library though, my local library has pretty much every repair model

dude, you probably wasted more money on two gallons of gas than buying it from amazon.com. I got mine off of amazon, it was free shipping (or like 3 dollars I can't remember) and it came here in 2 days. Just go with amazon.

I checked all over to find one for my '02 and came up empty handed as well, so I bit the bullet and bought the set from Helm. It is a 3 volume set that is basically what the GM mechanics use with schematics for everything. If you can't do it with these books, you shouldn't be working on cars...or driving them for that matter, they break it down that much. The only downside is that they are $120 for the set, that is a hell of a lot more than the $20 or so for a haynes or chilton manual, but they are far better too.

I wouldn't waste time with Haynes manuals, they're absolutely useless. If you already own one, tape a quarter to it and throw it away, that way you can say you lost something. I had one for my 1988 Firebird, and I have one for my 1993 Grand Am, and they were certainly a waste of a dead tree, not to mention my money. I might as well have flushed that moolah down the toilet.

Get a Chilton or a Helms manual instead, the info in these books is actually useful, and are easily found via Amazon.

Chilton manuals are nice. I had one for my old car, worked great.

I personally like the haynes, all the work I have done to my car so far is just replacing the headlights with Silverstar Bulbs and put in some spark plugs. I'm lookin g at changing the fuel filter this weekend and I've been reading up about it.

I was looking for a manual, ended up buying the GM Techline software off of ebay. Best manual I have ever owned.
