83-88 there is not much difference mechanically so the manual will be ok
Love those Tercell 4x4 wagons but they sure suffer from road noise.

Welcome to the forum!

I beleive the manual off this site is from 1985, the only different between an '85 ad 86 is the seat fabric pattern on the SR5 model. Perhaps there were a few different connectors or or other minor detail differences in the wire bundle, but that does (and the seat fabric pattern) do not even show up in the maintenance manual.

That manual should serve you just fine, it will have everything you need to know relevant to your Tercel. And what is not covered in the manual, there is this forum, its archives, and hundreds of years worth of experiance with the Tercel among the other forum members willing to help you keep your Tercel on the road.

I just bought a 1986 Tercel wagon DLX 4x4 (5 sped w/EL) through an online auction. It was sold as inoperable, but after charging the battery and putting gas, it started right up. I’m looking for both side mirrors and a deck (?) for the back. I’m hoping to fix this up as my daily driver. In the past, I’ve owned a 1980 and 1982 Toyota Corolla Tercels cars, both 4 door, both with manual transmission.

Greetings RCinNM, there are always people parting out cars on here and on the facebook page.
