Yeah, who ever had the car last removed that gasket, because you can see all the spark plug wires. After it gets out of the shop it should be good to go. I probably could have done it all myself, but I wanted to make sure it got done right and that way I will have receipts to prove the work has been done. It's going to be my son's car, so I want the car to last him a while. I probably will end up buying the car back from him later because he'll be off to college in a year and a half. I really like that car.

Yeah, they're fun cars. I had a 87 N/A as my first car, and I'm on MK3 number 7 now Glad to hear you're getting it taken care of, once you get past all of the neglect these cars (and most 25+ year old cars) have been through, they actually are quite reliable cars that treat their owners well.

CoosSupra82, I've only seen that no. 3 cylinder cover at the dealership. You may find it somewhat cheaper online through the various OEM Toyota parts retailers

Just do a google search for no. 3 cylinder cover. Prices are $46 - $48 for a new one with its plastic coating over the metal. The plastic coating tends to degrade over time. You will need a Hex socket to remove the 3 plugs. Harbor Freight has a good set for cheap. I think its a 14mm. I always add a bit of Permatex Black Ultra silicone to the threads of the hole and the plug before laying the no. 3 cylinder cover on. Tighten it down securely. This tends to be a leak problem area as are the valve cover gaskets where I use Black Ultra as well. I can offer you a used no. 3 cylinder cover without the plastic coating painted black for $10 plus $7 shipping. Just send me a private message.

Thanks for the help. I found that the oil leak was coming from the cam seals. As far as the #3 cylinder plastic cover. It doesn't seem to be there. Maybe the previous owner removed it because it got corroded. If you can please send me your email address or website, so we can discuss that cover you offered me. Again, thank you for the advise.
