What is a good substitute for a 1996 Toyota Tercel Chilton or Haynes manual?
Searching through sites, etc. its clear that there is not a Chilton or Haynes manual for
the 1996 Tercel. There is a pdf of the factory manual, which I have. Also, people say
that the 1987-1994 Tercel Chilton/Haynes Manuals aren't too helpful because of a lot
of changes in the car between 1994 and 1996. My 16-year old is more or less inheriting
my Tercel, and I want him to learn maintenance, etc. through one of these books. It
occurred to me that a manual for a different 1996 Toyota model might fulfill this
purpose. For specific repairs, we can use the factory manual along with miscellaneous
on-line resources. Anyone know which 1996 Toyota model may be good for this?
One of the Toyotas with the 1.3 4E FE series or 1.5 5E/ 5E FE engines. depending on what you have...Starlet, Paseo, Corolla. But those cars have just as many or more differences as the Tercel changes.Your best bet is the pdf file
