    i was wondering if anyone knows what this problem might be. it sounds like a belt squeaking under the hood and when i push the clutch pedal in, it tightens up and the squeak goes away. is this my throw-out bearing or is this just a belt that i can tighten? any info is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    sounds like the TO bearing. Some folks have had problems with them. Try a search in the 2nd gen forum. It would also help to know what engine/tranny you have

    could either be the clutch belt or possibly the muffler bearings. being that it goes away when press down the clutch pedal, my guess would be the pressure plate's torque band has been stretched a bit. Would be a good place to start. :thumbsup:

    clutch belt huh? ha. got my attention. anyway it sounds like you are a pround new member of the defective throwout bearing shaft club! I am a founder, so welcome! check out http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/58278-tsb-t-o-bearing-issue.html. Everything's in there about it. Oh, and if youre looking for the solution..... there isn't one... just put the defective setup back in and wait till it goes again.... hopefully someone will come up with something better soon. good luck!

    Did someone say, Muffler Bearing? :spy:






    In all seriousness, it sounds like you a have a problem with the throwout bearing. A well documented problem with the 2nd gen 6 speeds.
