Chilton and Haynes both print excellent manuals for individual vehicles with step by step instructions on all kinds of repairs. You can find them on line, just enter Chilton Motor Manual in the search engine.

Chilton & Haynes manuals are cheap and everywhere, but spend the extra $35 and get the GM repair manual from your local dealership, you will spend way less time pulling your hair out. Other descent resources online are All-Data (refered to in the industry jokingly as No-Data) or Mitchell-On Demand both have websites. They are fee based (yearly subscriptions) with these you can look up any vehicle in their database and print out there instructions during your subscription time. The GM manual is going to be by far your best bet if you own this vehicle for all of your future repairs in the long run.
