I have a 1988 Landcruiser and am in the process of changing the water-pump so I bought the book by Chilton seeing as it "claims " to cover Landcruisers thru 1988. Well, I got into the job and it turns out that the Chilton book fails to accurately describe how to remove the water-pump. Specifically, the book fails to mention the need to remove various parts like one of the pulleys/pulley tensioner and bracket, and unbolt the AC compressor bracket from the engine so as to be able to remove the water-pump once it has been unbolted. It seems that in order to reduce costs and in an effort to "appeal" to more Toyota owners, Chilton has skimped on their research/detail in putting this repair manual together. I am a very dissatisfied customer! A word to the wise, look elsewhere for a competent repair manual

I bought the Toyota Truck 1970 - 88 Repair manual, to assist me in the removal and replacement of my water pump. I am not an avid mechanic; I have several tools, and wanted to try to "Do It Myself". The manual was very easy to use; it was separated into divisions for engine, body, drive train and so forth. I quickly found the engine cooling system section, and located the water pump "R&R" (Removal and Replacement)section. I read the directions, and started in. I found very detailed instructions, and pictures that not only showed the bolt locations, but verbiage told me what to do first, It instructed me on how to replace the fan belts, in what order to avoid any mistakes. Wow this manual made it easy to do my own repair. I saved over $100 from the estimate I received on the replacement. I have read through the manual and realized I can perform additional preventive maintenance on my truck, to avoid problems. This is the best money I have spent in a long time. The Chilton manual makes me feel more comfortable about "Doing It Myself" Thanks for the Great Book. I am going to but one for my other car as well, they make repairs fun, and money saving.

this book really is way too plain it doesn't have any real detail on stuff you really need, for example I bought this book to change my alternator but the book didn't really say how to so for me this book was useless. the only good thing I can say about the book is that it has great wiring diagrams and schematics

This manual is outstanding and is quite detailed. While I would not call it a "shop manual", it DOES provide wonderful insight and help. I also purchased another Toyota manual from another publisher and between the two ~ I GET the job done!

100% Happy!!

Same old Chilton Auto Repair Manual about the same as Hayes manual maybe a little better for me. Use both of them for cross reference along with the Australian book.

They crammed too many different models into the manual, which means less space for detailed instructions and diagrams. This book is not for novices.

These guides are the best. Great price, easy delivery. Could not ask for a thing better. If you need a motor manual, this is an easy way to get one.

There is really not much to say about any technical manual. As long as it has enough information to allow one to do what is required.
