    New to this & first post... Hello :)

    Not sure that I'll really be fixing too much on my own, but will attempt a few things. Bought my truck a few months ago & it didn't come with an owners manual... been searching online for "how to... re: Tacoma" & this site often pops up, hopefully will help me out!

    I have digital copies of all sections of the owners manual. Its not a Haynes, but if you want it i can probably figure out a way to send it to you.

    Yeah, I'm thinking there's got to be a few things I can handle.. took my truck in for service & they wanted to charge me 50 bucks to change the cabin air filter. I said, "Ummm... No thanks, I'll do it myself". Then had to search online for what the heck a cabin air filter was in the first place because they wouldn't show me where it was.

    Baby steps... :yay:

    We are huge on DIY around here, most of us consider dealerships the Spawn of Satan, i myself have saved huge chunks of cash not having to pay people to do stuff to my truck. And I owe most of that to things I learned here or from friends i have met here.
