    The sheetmetal firewall between the clutch pedal, and the clutch master cylinder, is flexing when the clutch pedal is pushed in. :confused:
    So, the clutch doesn't work

    I posted about this last week and thought I needed to bleed the system. I did, and then I discovered this situation was the cause.
    Some past owner must have had a heavy foot.

    I guess I need to weld a metal patch over the area to give more support to the clutch pedal/cylinder. Hope it doesn't turn into a nightmare...:(

    This was a problem before the trucks became tacomas. I remember having to replace or weld the pedal support in my 1991 truck.

    I've never heard of that? Just curious, how many miles on your 01? I have a 02 5spd and so far so good.
