Question about Toyota Tacoma
Sound like the diaphragm springs on the pressure plate. are being worn by the release bearing. The release bearing seizes up and causes a whistling sound when parked, with out clutch depressed. You will eventually. lose you clutch if you let this persist. The best thing you can do is replace the clutch pressure, clutch, reliese bearing, and pilot bearing. All this comes with a clutch kit.
I also recomend resurfacing your flywheel.
-to remove your pilot bearing you can fill the hole with grease and take a 3/8 extention and hit the extention into hole. this usual allows the pilot bearing to come out.
I bet your pressure plate will look like this
