Repair Guides Library of Links

Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart"

In remembrance of my friend ARCHINSTL:

T4WD augury?
"Oh, do not ask, 'What is it?' Let us go and make our visit."
T.S. Eliot - "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock"

"Now and then we had a hope that, if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates."
Mark Twain

As far as digitally, I have never found one. I did find a Bentley manual on eBay, though. Here’s a link to one for sale right now:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1980-1981-1982 ... 0176151221

If there’s something you’re needing to repair sooner than it can come in, I can probably snap a few pics of the pertinent pages for the repair. I just don’t know that I have it in me to scan the whole thing... and the questionable legality of sharing an out-of-print copyrighted work gives me pause as well.
Do not be afraid of sudden fear nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes; For the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:25-26

Aguila,

Keegan is in the FB page and may have something, he’s in an early 80s Tercel.

Thanks for the info but I am stranded here in central America due to covid I don't have access to purchasing something from ebay, but you think that the 1984 manual is the same for the 81

I am trying to do a complete cooling system repair, cause I change the head gasket but the vehicle is overheating at a rapid pace

Yes, it will be the same. The engines remained the same from 1981 to 1987, so the cooling systems will be the same. The only thing I can think of in the cooling system that was different was the radiator/hoses. I recently had to change my radiator, but couldn’t get a replacement for my ‘81. I ended up getting a radiator for an ‘83-‘87 and made my own mounts and brackets. Works great now and no leaks.

I honestly can’t say that I do, but I removed my a/c system. If it’s a Freon smell and not a gasoline smell, then you may have a leaking evaporator core in the hvac case under the dash. It isn’t any fun to get to, either.
