I currently have a 1998 Toyota Tacoma, and the clutch pedal does not return all the way. I know it is not the clutch, it is actually the spring located underneath the pedal. It is catching and not releasing after pushed.... Hope it helps.

it is a self adjusting hydraulic clutch, if the clutch is engaging high on the pedal the clutch is worn out.

Where is the Clutch Adjustment located on a 1996 Toyota Tacoma?

The adjustment is in the clutch slave push rod and master( where the pedal push rod attaches the master cylinder ) if it uses a hydraulic type.
If it is cable type, the adjustment is on the cable front of the firewall, where the cable comes out from bulkhead.

Hope that helps!

5 speed trans 96 tacoma jumping out of gear 1st through 4th gears when you let off the gas

Hi there,

This commonly occurs when either the Shift Linkage is faulty (or simiply needs adjustment), Shifter Fork is loose, or there is excessive movement of the Input Shaft.

Adjusting the shift linkage would be your first task. If this doesn't correct the problem, then you will need to investigate the other 2 components as suggested above.

I have a 1996 toyota tacoma and I keep losing my clutch for no reason. All clutch, and hydraulics have been replaced at least once in the last year. Please help. I have no hair left.

that's odd. if in fact ALL of the hydraulics have been replaced, I'd say it would have to be air in the line somewhere,.try draining and replacing the fluid? Otherwise I had a similar problem on my Subaru, it was a part which assists the hydraulics mounted on the firewall...
Best regards

2005 toyota tacoma 4x4...just had the clutch and presser plate replaced...stuck in 6th gear....I have no money if i take it back to the mechanic and it is something extra I am in has been...

did it work before? if so it may be that the clutch was not bled properly. if you can have someone gently push on the truck and let it go creating a rocking motion while you try to put it in neutral. if it goes into neutral the clutch was not bled correctly

Slips out of 1st and 5th

Have you checked your transmission fluid level and your transmission filter? That's a common cause of slippping.

Shifting problems

start with the clutch fluid, is it full? check the clutch cable from the pedal to the transmission, does it have a lot of play in it, is it adjustable? check the bushings on the shifter base, does the shifter itself have a lot of play in it? i'd start with those, if all those are ok then it might be the clutch itself. when a clutch gets worn down it doesn't release fully causing a hard shift or grinding when going into gear. put the truck on a flat surface so it doesn't free roll at all, with the engine off, put the truck in first or reverse, press the clutch pedal fully to the floor and start the engine. let off the brake. if the truck moves at all it means your clutch cable is out of adjustment or its just getting worn out. provifing the shifter and the fluid level is good.
