Question about 1997 Toyota Tacoma
Sounds like a clutch related problem to me.. a few clues you gave.. the vibration.. sign of a worn pilot bearing.. clutch not engaging until top of pedal.. worn clutch lining.. the next thing will be slipping or grabbing..
At some point you will need to replace the clutch and pressure plate.. have the flywheel resurfaced.. insist on a new pilot bearing and inspect the clutch master and slave while all this is going on.
With good stick driving habits..and good components.. it could last a lot longer than the original.. if should go a lot longer.
Timing belt- your overdue by 8k miles if it hasn't been done.
You may want to replace the water pump, thermostat and drive belts while your at it.
Best of luck!
