How to Find Factory Recommended Maintenance Schedules When Your Owner’s Manual is Missing – Part 2

There’s a Forum for That!

One of the cool things about owning a car in the era of internet is that millions of others just like you have that same vehicle and have questions about it too. Believe me, there are people who are enthusiasts about your year, make and model. Drive a cool sports car? There’s a forum for that. Drive something odd like a 1997 Geo Prizm? There’s someone out there with the same car and they’re obsessed with it and they have internet access just like you. It’s a great place to find people who have similar questions or to ask your own about your car. There are forums for almost any year, make and model, but some of the more popular forums include VWVortex.com, ford-trucks.com, and my personal favorite, challengertalk.com (which would have been nice when I was making rounds on South Florida dragstips in my old ‘72 Challenger!)

Who’s Selling? Still want a physical manual but don’t want to pay dealer price? The internet is your friend once again. eBay, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace and other selling sites have manuals pop up for sale all the time. Feel free to dig through the sites and see what you can find!
