Red face so, NO shop manual, now what?

Hi
I recently bought a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue from someone who lies a lot... however, It's MINE now and I'm going to keep it running smooth..and nope, I have no idea what I am doing... which is a challenge I'm taken on!

It has a number of issues beginning with the battery, of course. that I can deal with BUT the CAMSHAFT SENSOR CIRCUIT needs to be checked....

and I CAN'T find a repair MANUAL..... Is there one? What do you use?

Thanks
Ginger

I am considering getting my hands on the virtual version of the Chilton manual, myself. The only Haynes manual I could find from back then was for the early 2000s Grand Prix, which were built in same Fairfax Kansas plant with the Intrigue. The parts may not be completely identical, though, so I'm thinking the Chilton manual is more specific: http://repair.chiltondiy.com/Oldsmob...-Manual-Online. I've seen Haynes and Chilton manuals at my local library on the shelf, but none for the Intrigue, though.

Partsgeek sells the paper manuals for about $20, and I think it might be a good investment someday soon, since I've only had my Intrigue for the past 5 months. Like you, the seller I had was not honest about lack of major repairs never done on maintenance schedule.

You may find Haynes and Chilton manuals to checkout at your local library. Also, online you can get one for under $25 from PartsGeek: https://www.partsgeek.com/mmparts/re.../intrigue.html.

I can relate...turns out there were a lot of repairs not done on maintenance schedule that seller didn't disclose to me when I got mine four months ago.
