There is a BIG difference. Haynes and Chiltons are for the occasional backyard mechanic...info for basic stuff like changing oil and minor maintenance. The 1"-maybe 2" thick book covers basically all years so if there is a minor change it may not even make mention of it.
Factory Service Manual is for the mechanic as it has complete teardown and rebuilding of everything to include trannys, engines, body panels, suspension, interior, wheels, etc., etc. Plus it has detailed Diagnostics of EACH DTC. There are theories of operations for the components too. They are specific to a year model (2006 Cobalt/G5, 2007 Cobalt /G5, and on) so the three-volume-set (6" - 7" thick together) is only info on that year model and usually includes even the smallest detail change (like brakes, a different tranny linkage in the middle of the model year, etc -- for example).
I have a 2008 Chevy cobalt with a 185000 miles about 85% of which is highway. It's also got to Eco tec engine and it's a 5 speed. I just found out my catalytic converter is bad and it's gonna run about $1100 to fix since it takes the more expensive converter.
Here's my question:
Just figured I'd stop in and say hi, havent been on in a while. Bought a house a while back and it's been my priority lately but will be getting the g5 and all of the parts to my garage soon to finally rebuild the thing.
Looks like someone important just heard about this. I know we know of this issue, with out fuel lines that rust out near the over axel section of the exhaust, under the heat sheilding around the lines, but from reading this it seems like they think this only happens in 08-10 Cobalts and 08-09...
2005 Cobalt LS, with FE1 want to go FE5 for the front control arms...
I currently have the FE5 front sway bar, and links, my current FE1 control arms are metal and metal now so I am looking to go for the FE5 aluminum ones. Is there a certain year I need to order? Are doorman ones any good...
