I have a Haynes around somewhere, but I wish I had a few FSMs...... I am taking care of a 1994, 1996, and a 1998....... I do have a factory parts book on one of my computers.

I'm using one called MnTom frankly. It's not as handy to carry around, and sometimes it needs food, and it gets pissy if you spill coffee or fuel on it, but it seems to be reliable enough.

Lol I use the same manual. Seems to work out most of the time, but doesn't always have all the answers

I have looked for Chilton, Haynes and other books about the dmax and have wound up finding out more information using your MnTom manual cause the others don't exist.

Thanks MnTom:cool:

It is a bad deal that there are no dmax manuals out yet. I can get one for the gasser version.

So, the manual that I am using is also MnTom.
