Both are garbage for anything beyond the absolute basics. They copy bod information off each other too... like recommending timing set at 10 ATDC, instead of BTDC. Ford Manual is the way to go if you plan on owning it for any real length of time. You can get digital copies for a decent price or pay through the nose like I did to get a hardcopy set.

Haynes and Chilton are owned by the same company, and the info in both is nearly identical. I have one or the other for every vehicle I own. Great to have, but should always be double checked, for reasons said by Pepe.

Beat me to it BigBlue and I'll add they don't have the information in them they used to either.

Checking engine codes - none of that in there any more.

Service Manuals are the way to go. Picked my '93 copy up on CD from Amazon.

Wish I could find a digital copy of the '93 emissions manual.
