Since the 1960’s Eastern import cars such as Honda, Toyota, and Datsun were taking the North American market by storm. In backlash the big 3 Chrysler, Ford, and GM all created their own versions of American Economy vehicles. Which all went well until the mid 80’s when competition grew fierce. GM decided to do something about it. In order to maintain its brand of long wheelbase cars and big V8’s they created Saturn. GM would go about creating a all new company and car; making Automotive History. The model that made this possible was the S-Series. Although no longer manufactured it still proves to be a cult classic with many online forums filled with gear heads who just love the S-Series, but guess who else loves the S-series. That's right, eManualOnline. We gathered all the blueprints and hand crafted a digital Saturn S-Series Repair Manual PDF. So you won't have to worry about stained papers.
Debuting in 1991 the S-Series was the first American compact car with at the time a heavy emphasis on a Futuristic Styling that became quite popular among other manufacturers. Because of its “Space Frame Design” it was lightweight and strong allowing the use of plastic body panels that could absorb your everyday dings and knocks. Found in SC (Sport Coupe) SL (Sedan Level) and SW (Station Wagon).
The S-Series all used a 1.9 Liter inline 4 cylinder block with either a SOHC using 2 valves per cylinder and a DOHC that used 4 valves per cylinder. At first only backed by a 5 speed manual transmission. However, later introduced a unfavorable automatic transmission that most enthusiast swap for the 5 speed due to its expensive rebuild prices.
At its initial release the S-Series did extremely well with its heavy emphasis on being the first all American economic compact car built in Spring Hill, Tennessee and being featured in the SCCA World Challenge winning several races.
However, the S-Series began to hit a decline in popularity when the novelty and the new SUV market began taking over. Leading Saturn to react, which lead to the succession for the Saturn ION. Today the Saturn S-Series is a cult classic among college students and first time drivers who need a car that is economic and cheap to maintain. Because of this eManualOnline created the perfect Saturn S-Series Service Manual where you have the power to maintain or build a Autocross race car.
