Those dvd's/cd's don't do much good unless you have a laptop. So you gotta risk bustin your laptop or at very least getting it all greasy. Or if you print the stuff out, you gotta go back and print the other stuff you encountered while trying to fix the original problem. Too much b/s.

The Ford Service manual would be the most ideal thing to have. I've had one of those haynes books for two years, the same one pictured. Pisses me off I can't find the Chilton's manual, they're usually better. Haynes is so generalized with everything. They tell you (print) how to do something with every motor but then they only show a picture of the part/procedure on like a 2.3 or 2.5. It's f*ing bullsh1t.

Try requesting for the book. Autozone may get one if they know people are out there wanting to buy it.

Even if they don't pick up a bunch, they can special order one for you. Hell, try going to Haynes website, you could prolly order one from there. Try Amazon or ebay. You could prolly get it shipped cheaper than what a big retail automotive chain will charge you anyhow and not have to waste the gas to go get it.
