    Tacoma 6-cyl
    I have 2003 Toyota Tacoma – 6-cylinder manual transmission, 4wheel.
    In last 1.5 year I have a problem with nice every time I press a clutch ( more when I release a clutch).
    I took my car to Toyota dealer twice they did something that it was OK for a while then the noise returned. Then I took it to Firestone Tire garage to change tires I told them about the problem. They told me that I need a new cylinder. I regret that I allowed them to change it - I am not sure that I got a quality cylinder.
    A few days ago I took it again to garage and mechanic took pedal assembly apart. It helped some, noise is not much. However I hear noise when pressing it close to the floor.
    I described the problem to mechanic, who works for the same company I do and does car work from his home/garage (he does a lot of work for my coworkers) and he told me right away over the phone that this is ‘throw out bearing problem..
    I have a feeling that he is right, any comments, anyone????
