    Just registered today! I bought a 96 Tacoma Pickup that needs some tlc but im kinda broke so any help i can get for doing maintenance my-self would be awesome. (hence the reason for joining this site) Its a 4 cyl, 2.4L, 5 spd manual tranny, completely stock with close to 185k. First automobile i've owned in my life. Recently move out here from Maui, Hawaii and a majority of my bank account went into this purchase. Im tryin to become a bit more car/truck savvy so im not always relying on some mechanic who for all i know is blowing smoke up my a$$, trying to squeeze every last penny outta me.

    p.s.

    ive got a cracked exhaust manifold and heat shield that i need to replace so if anyone could gimme some pointers or step by step procedure on how to get-er-done id appreciate it. Aloha
