About

The final version of the was released in 1985 as a front wheel drive, moving away from the rear wheel drive of its predecessor. The vehicle came in sedan and coupe form, with a reduced size exterior, giving the car a smaller appearance than previous models. The engine sizes ranged from a 3 liter V6, 3.8 liter V6 and 4.3 liter Oldsmobile diesel V6, usually in four-speed automatic transmission. Our extensive Electra 1985 - 1990 repair manual provides you with comprehensive guidance to help you carry out routine servicing and full-scale repair work.
