SOURCE: 2008 Toyota Tacoma Excessive brake pedal

Your dealer is not lying to you.
All of the Toyota product line with ABS has this phenomenon. What Toyota has done is incorporate "Brake Force Distribution" into the braking system. What that means is there is now a sensor on the brake pedal/brake rod, going to the master cylinder. The sensor measures how FAST you press on the brake pedal. This activates the ABS pump, and supplies more brake fluid, harder, to reduce the time needed, such as a "panic stop"; the pedal travel is much longer than you are used to, because of the way they have to measure the speed of the rod being depressed. In actuality, this system is much better than the old system, as it also prevents wheel drag. It just takes a while to get used to. Really, there is nothing to worry about, I explain this same thing to my customers every week.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

SOURCE: 05 tacoma tailgate latch stuck

I had the same problem. I figure that dirt/rust may have accumulated inside the latching mechanism. I was able to fix it using the following steps.
1 - Remove the plastic cap that covers the top of the gate.
2 - Remove as many of the remaining torx bolts from the inside cover (you will need to do this to get inside the gate).
3 - Next, try and get some WD40 on/in the latch mechanism.
4 - Using a large screwdriver, you will need to pry the lever attached to the cable in order to release the latch.

Not a pretty process but it seemed to work. I give the latches a good lubrication frequently now, until I get around to replacing them.

Some gravel has gone down the latch holes on each side. Take the tailgate out and place it on something that won't scratch it like an old blanket. Turn it upside down each way and gently tape on it with your hand to dislodge the gravel while operating the latch.

take the inside covers off the tailgate and lubricate the mechanical parts ie spring. You may have to turn the yoke the first couple of times until it loosens up. Just did mine works like new.

Welcome to Fixya

Remove the screws holding it together, then pulled it open as much as you could from the middle and hold it with a piece of 4x6 so I could access the left side, with a small screw driver, compared the both sides, to see what was the difference. you might need to do it few times. Once you manage to get it out. clean it, oil it if possible. Put it back then test again.

Thank you for using FIxya!

Where is the spare tire on a 97 Toyota tacoma?


It is under the truck bed. Look underneath from the tailgate and you should be able to see it. Some of them are encased in plastic these days to protect the spare from debris from the road.

I believe on the earlier Tacomas there should be a notch (maybe between the bottom of the tailgate and the bumper) for the tire iron to go into to access a nut to lower the spare tire
