1988 Firebird Service Manual For Download

I didn't know where to put this but for anyone interested I found a 1988 Firebird Service Manual for Free download in pdf format. It's hard to find what page you want for what you're looking for but if you don't have something like this it's better then nothing. On the page in the link, scroll down a little and on the lower right click Slower Download, wait for the timer and then you'll get the Download Now button.

Re: 1988 Firebird Service Manual For Download

Thanks, Parts of this may prove relevant for my 83'. It will definitely help when I upgrade my gauges, It even explains the digital dash wiring should I go that route.

Nice, this manual is a good starting place for my 86 T AM, but need to find 86 version as my car is less refined in 86!
Thanks

HI! The link seems to be broken. Saying the file isn't there any more. I need to rewire my fuel relay so I will have a gauge.

Re: 1988 Firebird Service Manual For Download

Found another manual for anyone that may need it, I will also make a new post for this to make it easier to find:

1982-1992 Camaro Repair Guide

This is in pdf format and is 875 pages. If you open the bookmarks tab in acrobat you'll see the directory which should make it easier to locate what you're looking for. Get it while the link is alive:

A few posts up Vader's link is still alive. Choose regular download after clicking the link, let the time run down and then you should be able to download it.

I am looking for manuals. If people have any and want to share them, I can host them. I run a server out of my house and I have business-class internet service, so hosting is no problem.

I know this is for Camaro's, but many of the systems are identical between Firebirds and Camaro's.

I scanned that 1988 manual a few years ago.
It seems you found it. Hope it's useful for everyone.
