Need exhaust manifold bolt help. Thanks!

Hello to all...
I'm a basic amateur-trying-to-save-some-money type so any help will be greatly appreciated. I recently replaced the exhaust manifold and EGR tube on my 2001 LX and I seem to have lost one of the 4 bolts and can't find a replacement anywhere. I can't even find out what size I need. I have the four top studs and three of the lower four bolts. Can anyone tell me what to buy at Home Depot or Lowes etc? Autozone has been absolutely no help and have twice sold me the wrong size. Since I have to drive the car to the store, I can't take one of the remaining bolts with me to match it up.
If there are specific types please elaborate (thread count, length, heat tolerance etc...). Any help you guys can provide would be appreciated. Thanks!

I bought this size from Summit Racing. I have a Zetec, so I'm not sure if it's the same size. 8mm x 1.25

Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure if they're the same or not. Hope somebody has a service manual. The chilton manual doesn't specify anything. I wouldn't want to buy the wrong one...again.

That's what I did. I went to Ace hardware and got stainless steel bolts. I think it was 12 bucks to replace them all with the fancy pretty looking ones lol

Nope, I just took them up there and used the little bolt thread finder guide they had in the section. What ever the bolt screwed into was the size I got.

As I stated originally, I can't take the bolt to the store because I have to drive it there and it would be really hot. Unfortunately I can't walk too well and the distance is too far. Under different circumstances, the fix would be easy, but sometimes the little things can really mess you up.
