1997 Toyota Tacoma v6/4x4/manual: Clutch petal/Clutch

1997 Toyota Tacoma v6/4x4/manual: Clutch petal does not always return 1oo% to the up position and has to be manually returned with my foot. When clutch is engaged to shift from a stop, there is not much of a release before the truck's tranny is engaged which makes the truck jump or stall... Should I start with the Clutch fluid and go from there; suggestions please?

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.

I have 1997 Toyota tacoma v6 4x4 I replaced clutch drove next day with no problems got in following and now won't engage/ disengage from gears. if turn off I can put in first or reverse but struggles....

Check the clutch master cylinder and the clutch slave cylinder for proper operation... chances are the slave is bad.. I think this is located on the passenger side of the tranny.. you may have lost fluid during the install.. or introduced air into the system.

If you needed a new clutch.. it was probably time to at least flush that system and or replace the slave cylinder.. also check the spring on the clutch pedal..

I hope you replaced the throw out bearing and pressure plate when replacing the clutch.. I suspect you did.

Best of luck

I think my problem is the clutch whenever im on the throttle it sometimes jerks, or hesitates for a second.1997 toyota tacoma 4x4 3.4L

there is a couple of different ways a clutch can give trouble,one is clutch slip ,this noticable on hills or accelerating from a stop position,you would notice the revs going up and the speed going down rapidly, the other is clutch judder, this caused by a contaminated clutch disc usually from oil etc. from what u are saying it sounds like your car has a slight missfire ,due to a dodgy plug lead or plug , u should remove the plugs and check for track marks where the spark has been jumping to earth and replace that lead.

Clutch pedal does not return automatically

Check for broken, missing, or disengaged clutch return springs. Your clutch pressure plate or throw out bearing could be going bad.

Clutch pedal not returning to position

Under the dash look to see if there is a spring attached to the petal or maybe under the hood. Or you might have something getting in the was of the petal arm. Good Luck and PEACE
