Great post, great find!

Was looking for torque specs for my 2002 Safari AWD. Was about to shell out for a set of shop manuals on ebay.

Although the links referenced above are great information, it is sometimes difficult to read or print; and not particularly convenient when working on the van and needing to reference diagrams etc.
I would strongly recommend watching for a set of shop manuals. They do pop up fairly frequently, and the exact year is not critical ( as long as it is the same generation ).
I found a used set, in slightly used condition, for $20. That was a couple of years ago. I use them regularly...particularly the electrical section.
Trying to follow a wiring diagram is often difficult when you are having to flip pages in printed manual. I cannot imagine trying that on a computer screen! :banghead:

definitely ^that^

I love these documents, tons of useful and fun info. but, my FSM's were in my hands before my van was even delivered. $30 on eBay for an almost-pristine set.

The cheapest I could find the 2 shop manuals for my 2002 Safari on ebay was $200 :shock:

I was thinking of getting a different year (same gen) FSM, but wasn't sure because of certain things being different like the EGR delete, multipoint fuel injection etc etc.

I have a big old beat up tablet that i usually use for maintenance work. I take a pic of the page on the website or send the file to it, then use the tablet when working. Not ideal tho, and I definitely prefer the book in hand way.

Maybe it's time to put up a post in the wanted section.

holy moly, you're right...2002 is expensive!

I do the tablet n picture thing quite often, it's an eyesight issue, but I'd hate to have to rely on it for everything.

Thanks for posting this. I bookmarked the 2001.
I actually learned some things I hadn't known.
I have 1999 Service Manuals, the 2001 isn't much different, tow stuff, minor things. I got my set for $15!!!
