    occasionally i will hear/feel my clutch pedal squeek, not very often though. the other day driving with my window down, i heard a noise that sounded just like the squeek from the clutch pedal(what i always thought the soudn was). its coming from underneath my truck everytime i depress the clutch pedal. its loud enough i can hear it with the truck running, and with traffic driving by. hard to tell where exactly its coming from, i'm going to assume maybe the slave cylinder? anyone else ever have this problem? i hope its not something internal on the tranny, although it might help explain why its damn near impossible to get into gear sometimes...

    haha the elusive throwout bearing squeel. I think everyone with a 6spd has the same problem. Mine does it occassionally. I'm used to it though since my accord I had before my taco did the same thing.

    There is two sides to that complaint. Personally I don't really care about it since its just a noise and its nothing mechanically detrimental to worry about. I put 100k miles on my accord with a squeaky throwout bearing and never had a problem with it. On the other hand there are many people on here that have taken their tacos to the dealer and had the whole transmission replaced only to have the squeak come back a few months later.

    WORST CASE SCENARIO is for some crazy reason your throwout bearing may fall apart and cause your truck to not come out of gear so you might be looking at replacing the pressure plate and flywheel. Keep in mind thats just a stretch and has only happened in a very small percentage of vehicles.

    Otherwise...just deal with it like I do :D It adds character

    It's not just 6 spd throw out bearing/housing issue. I have 5 spd 2.7l & can hear it under the truck when in drive thru or somewhere where a wall bounces the sound back at ya. I'm going with slave cylinder noise. See no leaks, brake fluid resevoir is still clear & full so it can keep doing it. Not chasing it, especially when others have & it stays good for 5 minutes then back at it...from what I've seen posted.

    The slave cylinder is only going to squeak once when you push in the pedal and once when you let it out. if its a constant squealing/chirping sounds then it's the throwout bearing

    thats why im leaning towards slave cylinder, its not a constant squeak only when depressing or releasing the clutch pedal. should this thing be making all this noise at only 49K miles?

    Mine's been making that sound for the past year too. Only makes the noise when the pedal is being pressed in or released. Not a constant chirping. It hasn't gotten worse and I haven't had time/money to deal with it yet.

    The squeek is most likely coming from inside the large rubber boot (the one the pink marking is pointing to). Get a can of White Lithium Grease ($3 at Advance Auto Parts) and spray it inside there. I took the boot off and sprayed the hell out of everything. It hasn't squeeked in two weeks.

    I had my girlfriend push in the clutch while I sprayed, just so the spray could get absolutely everywhere. Try that too.

    Be careful spraying grease. Grease + clutch disc = slipping.

    just thought id update this. that grease worked for the day then the noise came back. i also noticed that since its colder now, when i depress the clutch pedal, it takes its good ole time returning to its original height. im really thinking the slave is going bad now. i'm goin to call the stealership tomorrow and set up an appt.

    Hmmm? Let us know how that goes. Thought after some posts that it could be the pivot point inside the boot but if it just comes back the very next day then not gonna mess with that. Still have about 36k left on my drivetrain warranty. If it's just sound, I don't care but if it will eventually be problem then I want Toyota to fix it for free. Oh, no strange pedal action on mine even when 20 degrees the other day.

    lets say it is the slave cylinder, is that something toyota would cover under the drivetrain warranty?

    Let's say they better, it's part of the tranny which is def part of the drivetrain. Engine, tranny, driveshaft & rear axle. They've already done rr main seal/gearbox oil one time & rr axle seals/brk pads/gear oil(since the seals ruined the brk pads) another time on mine so far. It also is developing a very very slight oil ooze wear head/block/timing cover meet on passenger side that they'll eventually have to deal with at some point before I get to 100k. Really unimpressed with build quality vs. my 1982 prerunner I flailed on for over 400k for 25 yrs but hey, this ain't then any more.

    Went out to start the truck early this morning, approx. 40 degrees outside.
    Clutch pedal stuck down for a couple seconds then came up real slow.
    I let the truck warm up with the heater on inside.
    After the truck was warm, running in my driveway, the clutch pedal was still real sluggish and stiff. For the first couple miles driving, the pedal was slapping the bottom of my foot, coming up in a slightly delayed manner after depressing the clutch.
    Going back to the dealer tonight.
    Yesterday the dealer said there was a TSB for a bushing but that my truck did not fall in that serial number range.
