    Really?? How do you figure that?

    I would say its most likely the hydraulic system, either the clutch master or the slave cylinder, the TB would make noise, not cause a soft pedal.

    One way to check it is to depress the pedal for about one minute, if it feels like it has lost pressure at that point you have a bad seal in the slave or clutch master. I replace this stuff all the time, however it seems that I replace the masters more often than the slaves...just my .02.

    my truck is sitting in repair. now ive had a soft feel to the pedal when driving it to the limit and after a while (2 monts) it started to make noise then it died on me letting me sit beside a highway towtruck came and the guy from toyota let me see what happened. ive ordered an new clutchkit and flywheelcombo and also the upgraded tb from urd i hope this will be the last one ive got to buy causse clutches arent the best part (killed 2 oem and one upgraded kit ) on my toyota
