Default A question for the DIY folk

I have almost always performed all my own maintenance, not because I'm tight but rather I enjoy the satisfation of knowing I can do it. The question to all of you DIY'ers is what service manal is considered best?

A. Chrysler
B. Haynes
C. Chilton
Thanks from a newbie!

D - I post on forums before I do something I haven't done before - like put on lowering springs or add a sway bar...

The one linked to at the sticky in the top of this forum is very comprehensive. No clue which one that is.

I always buy the Haynes manual for every car I buy but sometimes they leave things out and don't cover some other things but between that and the FREE service manual that's on this forum they cover almost everything and as QSD just pointed out, using this and other forums plus a Google search does wonders for information.

I have used the Haynes and Chilton books in the past, however I just got the 3 volume Chrysler Service Manual for 2005 PT Cruiser Sedan & Convertible and they by far are the best I have ever seen or used. They are not cheep but they will show every wire, nut, bolt and weld in your PT Cruiser.
