    I took it apart and while it does look different than your has the good shap...and the plastic thing on the end of the shifter that fits into the in good shape...I could not shift to any gear by moving the ring with a rod....I think it must be stuck in gear inside the transmission....O, me...The other solution would not work as the shifter seems to be in neutral...the clutch works...just can not shift out of 6th...(the shifter is not stuck in 6th)

    Could this problem have been caused by the mechanic not doing something right when replacing the clutch and pressure plate?????

1995 Toyota Tacoma 3.4L 5-speed manual feels like 4x4 is not fully engaging.

check that the clutch is fully engaging by checking if there is free play at the throw out lever and clutch push rod . If you cannot push the rod back into the cylinder then the slipping is because the clutch is only partially engaged. Replace the clutch master cylinder if that is the case. If it is right then the fault will be in the pressure plat/ cutch plate and it may require a clutch kit.

Clutch was replaced a year ago and now when i push the clutch it wont allow me to change gears and it sounds like an air pump

That sounds like you have a problem in the pressure plate! Go to the nearest garage and pull down the transmission to replace the clutch assembly. But if you could get the warranty from the one who replace the clutch, inquire about it. Mostly the mechanic would replace the clutch assembly( clutch disc, pressure plate, and release bearing ). So that it will be a one time job.
Either you could tow your vehicle to the nearest garage or drive it( before starting the engine put the gear to 1st and let it start, slowly at 1st gear you could drive into the nearest shop ).
Hope that helps you out!

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

Well, there is only one thing I can think of in your situation. Your pressure plates just simply are not creating enough pressure to allow the gears to engage. Either you have a defective clutch and it needs to be replaced, or possibly just needs a ton of adjustment. When you put it in 1st gear while engine is off, then start it and take off that works b/c there is enough pressure to keep the gears from starting to move when not already moving. However when they are already moving, there is just not enough pressure to stop them from turning, not even long enough to shift. Have you tried forcing it into 2,3, or 4 while driving without the clutch? As long as you achieve the correct RPM's your transmission should be able to do so.

Got a tough one: Tacoma starts vibrating only while accerating

I think its your gearbox as what you've saying is that you were drive with heavy moving trailer across the country and in the mountains it happiened i believe its friction rings in your gearbox what you've done calls RAPE GEARBOX i'll explane to you why

what is friction rings its a metal made rings inside your gearbox that are spinning. every time you switch your speed u said u've got 6-speed manual transmittion which means there are 12 friction rings on each of the speed + rear speed (R) now what happiens when you going up hill oil cerculation going faster as frictions spin faster but if you have not enough oil comming into the frictions then they start to rub on each other and they die thats maybewhy u have vibration

This is just my opinion

2005 Toyota Tacoma Gearbox shifting loose and unable to shift up to 1, 3, 5 and R. Clutch seems good except for shifting gear.

You may possibly have a defective clutch slave or master cylinder. Get this fixed immediately as it will cause problems with the gear box.

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

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.
