    I have the paper Toyota FSM version for my '98 and I always find myself using the online indexed version more, it's so much easier to navigate.

    A lot of the links are broken, but the '03 one downloads fine. That's the one I use the most.

    How much difference do you find in the 03 fsm vs working on earlier year trucks?

    I use it all the time for my two 1998's. Only major differences I know of are some of the wire colors and some minor tweaks.

    That's good to know. :cheers: I know the 03 has diagnostics for both throttle body types which is the largest difference I've found.

    I even have the Paper edition of my 1998 service manual but I use the 2003 one way more simply because it's easier to navigate, plus it's indexed. Even the wiring diagrams are mostly the same, just some of the pinouts and wire colors changed over the years.

    Yep, have the $$$ multi-book fsm also. Having it on my phone & computer is pretty much indispensable.

    I don't even touch the paper manuals anymore. For things that mostly remain the same, like torque specs, I use my the '03 indexed PDF on my laptop.

    No. The 2003/2004 5VZ v6 has the ETCS-I electronic throttle system, 1995-2002 have a mechanical cable driven throttle. The valve body and the throttle body at least will be different.

    That website received a copyright infringement/takedown notice so you won't be able to find up-to-date FSM links. If you're doing any engine work than involves the throttle system then it will be different.

    Every year something changed, especially the pinouts on the ECU and other computer components in some cases. If you're doing something basic than never changed over the generation like a water pump, head gasket, etc. then any year FSM will be fine. It's entirely up to what you're doing to determine if you need your specific year FSM or not. Most of the time the answer is no, you don't need the year specific FSM.
