They are basically the same but the F60 has a 2.8 motor and the Blizzard a 2.2. I have motor and chassis manuals for the Daihatsu but not to sell. I may be able to copy specific parts of the manual you need. Where are you? (I am in Perth). David

The issue is one of over-fast idling. First thing is to check coolant level in the engine. Make sure that the coolant is at the 'max' in the reservoir (1:1 mix of water : antifreeze). Low coolant would preve nt the ECU from detecting the car is at operational temperature. When the car is cold the ECU extends injection times to keep the car running but when warmed up the injection times are again shortened to reduce engine speed at idle. Also at idle, the Idle air control valve (IAC) on the throttle opens to allow air to by-pass the closed throttle plate. Check that as the engine gets warm that the coolant hoses to the throttle body become warm (showing that no blockage is preventing coolant circulation). Check that IAC air passage is clear and that valve can open freely. If the IAC coolant hoses are blocked or the valve is jammed open this would account for the very high idle speed. If everything looks OK check the PCV hose from the valve cover to the throttle and make sure that there are no blockages in it.

Well, I have never heard of an oil leak that only drips and/or burns when stepping on the gas pedal. Other than that, all I can say is that the problem is that you have an oil leak. You must VISUALLY inspect the engine to find out where it is leaking from (Hard to do over the internet). If you can tell me exactly where it is leaking from, I can give you instructions on how to repair it.

The 3Y is a Toyota engine used in the Rocky/Rugger.
Setting up valve timing you need to set the no.1 cylinder on TDC on the compression stroke.
Turn the crank until the piston is at the topmost point of its travel. Determine this by inserting a plastic or wood dowel in the plug hole and watching it travel upward. Be careful that it does not snag.
At TDC the mark(see red arrow on diagram) on the crank sprocket will be at the lowest point(If the sprocket has been removed the set key -see blue arrow- will be at the topmost point)
Turn the camshaft so that the set key is at the topmost point and aligns with the mark on the engine. If the sprocket has not been removed, remove it now.
On the timing chain you will find 2 links that are lighter in color than the others. These 2 links have to be aligned with the marks on the sprockets before refitting the sprockets to the shafts.

It could be something simple like a tire. Or it could be a wheel bearing or a bearing in the differential.
