hard tu push clutch pedal

Hi guys, need some input from all of you.

My truck is a 95.5 tacoma 4wd 2.7L reg cab, the issue with it, is that the clutch pedal is very hard to push in, I'm having to have a foot massage done on my foot every night.

The clutch does not slip, nor is it hard to shift, it's actually pretty good, except for that.

what options do I have?

This is my 7th toyota truck I've owned (and my first tacoma), and not one of them was the clutch hard to push in.

I really love this truck, but the pain in my foot is starting to get to me.

please advice...

yes, the fluid level is normal, and the color is still light amber looking.

lol, then you should try driving an old ford bronco with a mechanical clutch. I almost sent the pedal through the firewall on my Sonoma when test driving it it was so easy to push. My taco feels the same as the sonoma.

I have had several yotas, and none had stiff clutch pedals, as a matter of fact they were pretty light.

I did had once a 96 ranger 4wd, v6, the clutch on that one was even harder to push in.

do you think the pressure plate if I chage it out it will get better? I seriously doubt that its the slave or master cylinder...

my 99 had a hard pedal, my 01 has a soft pedal, my guess is possible tension of the return spring.....

Mine seems tough too, left ankle/calf gets a workout since I have a long drive in bad traffic after work (where I'm on my feet all day driving while standing up LOL)
