Repair Informaton for 1990-97 Chevrolet Lumina APV, 1990-99 Oldsmobile Silhouette, 1990-98 Pontiac Trans Sport, 1999 Montana, and the 1997-99 Chevrolet Venture is intended to help you learn more about the inner workings of your vehicle while saving you money on its upkeep and operation.
The beginning of the guide will likely be referred to the most, since that is where you will find information for maintenance and tune-up. The other information deals with the more complex systems of your vehicle. Operating systems from engine through brakes are covered to the extent that the average do-it-yourselfer becomes mechanically involved. This guide will not explain such things as rebuilding a differential for the simple reason that the expertise required and the investment in special tools make this task uneconomical. It will, however, give you detailed instructions to help you change your own brake pads and shoes, replace spark plugs, and perform many more jobs that can save you money, give you personal satisfaction and help you avoid expensive problems.
A secondary purpose of this guide is a reference guide for owners who want a better understanding of their vehicles and/or their mechanics. In this case, no tools at all are required.
