    Someone told me this is normal for this Taco. I fear he is wrong. Here's the deal. Cold engine, clutch to the floor, in neutral,turn the key, engine starts, all is well. When I let the clutch out, the truck starts to roll forward while it's NOT in gear.
    Seems to be worse when the vehicle is cold. The roll is gentle and very slight and is in no way a jump or a lurch. On a flat surface the truck will roll about 3 feet. The E brake makes it a non issue but behold and low the other day I forgot it and rolled straight into a huge stack of firewood. " NO not the chrome!:eek: ". Beyond that the truck runs and shifts like a champ. So here are my questions..
    1 - Is this a sure sign that my clutch has one foot in the grave?
    2 - Is this a common issue for this vehicle?

    Thanks
