Series 2 was not until 1991. 1989 is Series 1.

an easy way to tell... if your thermostat is behind your throttle body its a S1.. if its on the front of your engine slightly to the left of your alternator its a S2..

easy....

good point but it depends what parts your trying to get for it i think the cas and water pump are the 2 major issues when looking for parts
