    Hey everybody...i jus got a 2011 tacoma double cab 4x4 trd offroad 6 speed in pyrite mica a few weeks ago and i notice that when i push the brake pedal then start the engine the brake pedal comes up instead of going down a couple inches...is that normal?

    Also when i push the clutch in to shift from first to second the truck makes a thump sound but it shifts smooth through the rest of the gears..do i need to adjust the clutch or something?

    Please help, thank you

    If you have the clutch pedal on the floor while shifting and it's noisy, take it to the dealer.
    Not sure on the brake issue.

    I haven't noticed that on my truck..... but I would tend to say it's normal.

    When starting the truck, the system (aka brake booster, etc) is probably being pressurized via vacuum and why the pedal is going upwards. Or, there's a leak somewhere that's allowing the pressure to release when the truck is off (can't replenish pressure while truck is off). That's just a guess.....


    Since you are still under warrantee, take it to a dealer.
