you'll probably have to order a manual from a parts store. they usually don't stock it. as to the blown head gasket, that's fairly common on these cars. due to a typo or something, toyota torqued them to the wrong spec at the factory. i think (but im not 100% certain) that the correct torque is 70 lb ft.

The problem with the torque spec was that toyota had originally designed the motor for use w. an asbestos gasket.

yeah that was it. and the correct torque is 72 lb ft.
