    I have a "new to me" 2001 Tacoma 4x4, 2.7. The clutch doesn't engage (if that's the right word) until the pedal is almost completely on the floor. It doesn't slip and the pedal is firm but it let's out just barely off the floorboard.

    I did a quick check and the fluid seems to be at the right level. I had a Mazda B2000 before that had this problem due to low fluid.

    Is this normal? Adjustable?

    TIA

    It could be a pedal assembly adjustment issue ...

    The clutch pedal pushes a push rod to work the clutch. This push rod can be adjusted for play / travel.

    You can also adjust the pedal height (from floor to back of pedal).
