looking for a workshop manual

Postby mukaziwe » Mon Dec 19, 2011 1:56 pm

HI, we have recently purchased a Holden Frontera 2002 which has a 3.2 V6 Isuzu engine and are having problems trying to buy a manual for it. Haynes Australia say we need the Haynes No 41753 manual and another online forum tell us we need a differnt one. :roll:
Anyone been through this before? :?:

in your gmail account there are 8 emails. Download the attachments and put in a folder. Go to this site and download a copy of 7zip http://www.7-zip.org/download.html . Use 7zip to open the first attachment and it will unpack the lot into the factory manual.

Hey Thanks so much for that, talk about rapid response. Have a little problem though, Gary isnt all that computer literate and really needs a hard copy. :oops: So I guess my original question remains,, which manual do I buy? The Haynes guys said the book for the rodeo and the other forum said it was the american model of the book which describes the car as an amigo, so I am still in the dark. Any ideas??? :idea:

Do you have a friend that can run the programme above and print for you? Will be cheaper and being the factory book its got extra info as well.
If you realy want the Haynes manual it is this one but it does not cover the diesel engine

I have a separate manual in pdf form just for the engine. Add that to the haynes manual and there is very little not covered. The 2 main manual writers are Chilton and Haynes. Both these write for the American market where diesels are not common. There is also Gregories but I know little about them

Hi geeves
That first manual that you emailed mukaziwe is exactly what I have been looking for. Is there any chance that you still have it and can email it through to me? Or know of a link I can download it?

Much thanks
rich

Hi I have recently purchased a 1998 Isuzu opel Wizard. It's sort of like a ltd verson or a facelift moel :lol: It is a 3l diesel. I am looking for the owners manual and service manual for it as it is a Jap import. Hopefully we will get a good run from it.

Thanks very much

there are 11 emails in your xtra account from isuzunz download the attachments and get a copy of 7zip or winrar to unpack them. This is the best manual available but doesnt cover the ecu and electronic control of the 4jg2 that well.
If anyone has a manual that covers the ecu I would love to have it for distribution

I have the Haynes manual (47020/1641)for my 1990 Jackaroo with 4Ze1 engine. It is frustrating to find that some subjects are covered in relation to other models, and do not cover the subject for my vehicle. It appears to be trying to be all things to all people. Is there a manual that covers my vehicle only, and in full detail?

I have the same haynes manual and for several years its all I had but my bighorn has the 4jb1 diesel so I know what you mean.
There isnt realy an online manual that does better for your wagon but I do have other manuals where a certain section might be of use. Let me know what you need and I can try and help
