Labor charges for clutch repair vary from shop to shop --- your best bet would be to find a shop that deals with late model Toyotas on a regular basis. time wise should be 4 to 6 hours and the cost should be anywhere from $450 to $750 in labor and parts. ( not a hard clutch to replace ).

Toyota transmission 1988

Hi Mel, I believe that if you remove the fork and carrying it with as a sample, visit a few breaker yards you'll be able to match up something. Vehicles with similar manual boxes Toyota Chaser, Toyota Mk 11, Toyota V 6 Camry and so on. If we can sort out problems such as this in Zambia, you can in the States. Regards John

96 Nissan PU 2WD/5SPD, will not go in gear while running. Is it the clutch ot throw out bearing?

Your labor would be the same on replacing either one, You should replace the bearing and clutch at the same time.If a shop is doing it you should be looking at 4-5 hours of labor as trans has to be dropped. expect to pay 600-700 for repair if thats all it needs.

Starter relay

I could not find one on my 1988 Camry either but if I read the shop manual correctly, there is no starter relay for cars with an automatic transmission. Cars with a manual transmission use a starter relay. There are other obvious errors in the shop manual wiring diagrams but this is what it implies.

Clutch always engaged

Well, if the clutch master cyl is empty the clutch will not disengage.
And if it is empty there is a leak.
Possible someone put transmission fluid into the master which would probably destroy the seals.
There should be a brake master cyl and a clutch master cyl next to each other on the firewall.
I would check the clutch master cyl next.

I just had my clutch done and flywheel cut down to toyota specifications , but I cannot get into any gear. Someone told me that it may be the syncro in the transmission. can you help me with this? what...

If the clutch was done correctly and that was the original problem that push you to do the clutch, would be a good idea to recover the gear oil in your trans axle, the condition of this fluid may give you and idea of what is going on, silver in color worn-out syncro or other components, metal shavings ans silver in color damage gears.

Need Directions to Replace clutch in a1993 4runnerV6

start off bt taking off your shifter, then disconnect the wires,cables, and the 4x4 linkage, the drop out both drive shafts, support the tranny and transfer case then remove the tranny mount. take out the bolts on the bell housing that go into the motor the pull out the slave cylinder,and the last thing to remove is the cross member that holds up your tranny. after that slide the tranny back about 6 inches tor until it's free from the block and lower it down. after you get it on the ground pull of out clutch fork that is in the bell housing of your tranny, pull the bearing off the shaft that is in the bell housing as well. and last but not least take off the clutch plate ans the clutch disk that is on the fly wheel on your block. and i cant stress this enough be careful when you pull the tranny out and make sure it will not fall on you. so please do it carefully. And take your time.

Hi. You might wanna consider repair the transmission, because is just gave up on you. Replace the clutches on it and you should be fine for another 100,000mi. Don't forget to replace the fluids with brand new one and flush the transmission filter, They usually do this at a transmission repair shop, but just in case you consider doing it yourselves.

1989 Toyota Camry


On an 89 Toyota Camry with manual transmission, two possible reasons:
  • clutch;
  • release bearing
Try bleeding the clutch on the slave cylinder. If this does not prove to be corrective, you may have to have the transmission/clutch checked/repaired/replaced. In some instances, it could just be a sticking release bearing or clutch fork.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
