Book also includes wiring diagrams. Each chapter starts with a listing of component specifications and torque specifications, which is extremely handy. In chapter 6, the book does list generic OBD-II trouble codes and definitions; however, it lacks a specific troubleshooting flow chart for each code. (You'd probably need the factory service manuals for that level of detail.) It does provide valuable information on testing sensors, though.
Each Haynes manual typically starts with general information and safety tips--like how to jump start the vehicle, how best to jack it up, etc. (This book is no exception.) Also included in the introductory section is information on specialized tools, chemical information, and conversion factors. There's a helpful troubleshooting section in the front of the book that lists symptoms and possible causes of common problems. There's a useful index in the back of the book for easy lookup of information. Inside the rear cover are color pictures for reading spark plugs.
In my opinion, this book is well worth the money if you do your own repair work. If I'm undertaking a major repair job, I will typically purchase this book along with another service manual and compare the two for an objective view before tackling the job. Haynes is my favorite among non-factory provided repair books.
The Hyundai Elantra is a good car for most people. It is an economic vehicle to run and maintain, but when something minor causes major problems, who can you turn to. Most head for the dealership. But there are lots of items on the vehicles that can be done at home by the general mechanic. And Haynes shows you how. Haynes has produced an excellent manual showing a complete breakdown of the vehicle, and step-by-step instructions on how to do the majority of the repairs at home. For a little investment in tools for your vehicle, you can purchase your parts at a discount at auto parts houses, and feel pride in your ride by doing it yourself.
The book is complete, like all the other Haynes manuals I've used. The photos are probably the main weakness. As always, the photos are small and not always clear. Since it covers 11 different editions of the Elantra, it's pretty hit ot miss whether your Elantra will be the one in the photo, this sometimes makes it tricky to follow along. But focus on the text and they will have a naexplanation for you. There are only a few types of problems you can have which this book won't be able to help with. If the Haynes mechanics don't do it, then I probably won't try it, time to hire a real mechanic.
