Every book for your car in one place
Pontiac has made shop manuals every year since the first car arrived on the scene in 1926 as a smaller companion to GM’s Oakland. Pontiac factory repair manuals are the best and most specific service information available. Early Pontiac repair manuals cover all mechanical repairs and have a companion Fisher service manual for body work.
From the mid-1950s through the mid-1960s, Pontiac created multiple books for repair of each year. These manuals include:
· Mechanical shop manual
· Body manual
· Air conditioning, heating, and ventilation
· Hydra-matic transmission
· Fuel injection
In 1967, Pontiac returned to a simpler car manual format in which there was typically just a shop manual and body manual for each year. In 1968-1969, some of the repair information from the shop manual was put into a separate diagnosis manual, but that information was returned to the shop manual for 1970. Generally, all Pontiacs were covered in one shop manual and one body manual (along with a few supplements) up until 1981. In 1982, separate models began to have their own shop manuals and still used body manuals.
From 1989-1995, Pontiac usually made comprehensive shop manuals that covered all the repairs for a car in one book or in one set of books.
From 1996-2006, repairs for the car are available in one set for each model, and all of them refer to a separate manual for transmission overhaul (this is only for major rebuilding. On-car transmission service is included in the main service manual).
For 2007-2010, you’ll find all repairs to the car covered in one comprehensive set of books specific to each year and model.
