Talking Donkey Y2K

Found and bought a MINT condition 2000 Cavalier for $500 with original 7k miles, bad head gasket and water pump.........apparently water pump came off??? or something to that affect. Its been sitting inside some old ladys garage for EVER.....

Had same year.......Donkey One. He lasted me through 312 thousand miles. (MANY many repairs done myself.........ironically, head gasket wasn't one of them).
Now, I know absolutely ZERO about cars, but I ALWAYS figure it all out.....(you know, just google it)...I have started with the head everything off okay.....bit of trouble getting water pump housing off.....


I would REALLY like the factory service manual. Free, of course. (My God, try googling that one, I am certain it would be far easier to find a FREE matching donor kidney than a "free" factory service manual.

If anyone could help, I would certainly appreciate it........

I doubt you will find a free factory service manual, unfortunately. Try going for a Chiltons or Hanes manual. You may have a local library that carries them.
