    I want to learn more about my 2005 Yukon XL SLT. I pop the hood and don't recognize some components.

    I tried "search forums" for a thread about service manuals but no results.

    Any suggestions? ( I am not looking for the cheapest version - I want the best version )

    I don't want an annual fee (?).... Unless it's a good choice....

    Uh, "All DATA" ?

    After posting this, I was checking out the web version- "ALLDATA diy ".
    $49.00 / 5 years. But checking out their samples first, are limited.

    Thanks

    Chilton and Haynes are pretty thorough and a good scan tool like Tech2 won’t hurt.

    You can get the GM shop manual in either disc or download from SeriousCTBuyer on ebay. Someone else just bought one off ebay for about $5-10 less and said it was complete too. AllDataDIY is complete as well and is updated if needs be. The shop manuals for the most part were written to work hand in hand with GM specified tools, specifically the Tech-2 and others.

    I like having both.

    I bought 2 DVD versions from "seriousbuyer" & "manualsforyou".... both e-bay and good ratings.

    One at $17.00 & other at $27.00.

    At that price..... "What the hell"
