Where can I buy a Maintenance Manual

I need to do some work on my '95 Tacoma. An engine or top end replacement may be in order. First I've got to figure out what is going wrong.
All I can find at the auto parts stores are useless manuals that really only tell me how to change my oil. I'd like a mechanic's manual if possible or at least an after market one that tells you how to work on major stuff.

Any suggestions on a good manual? Any ideas where I can get one? Even one on CD would be fine with me.

Thanks

Free here but fwiw I bought a Haynes manual from Auto Zone and they are worth their weight in gold. I used one to rebuild a motor from an s10 with it

Going with the same thought on a Haynes, you should look into opting for there online manuals. About the same price and alot more to it.

Haynes is the best after-market manual. I always carry one in the truck.

However, I also went ahead and bought a factory manual from Ebay. There are 2 volumes, really thick. Great for troubleshooting. I plan on keeping my truck 4-ever, and doing the repairs myself, so its worth it.

Thanks. I will check out a Hanes and see about a FSM on Ebay.
You can never have too many good ones.
