    Hey boys and girls. I just bought an 03 Taco SR5. It has 210,000 kms, or 131,000 miles. There are a few little gremlins to work out but over all it is a great truck. The day after I got it home a noise raised it's head. When I depress the clutch shifting from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd, there is a whine (lasts about 1.5 seconds) which seems to come from directly under the shifter. Any thoughts on what this may be? Would I need to give immediate attention or can I nurse to spring when I pull my car out of storage so I have a second vehicle to use while working on this?

    Might want to check the fluid level of the tranny to be safe. It could also be the throwout bearing, which would require pulling the tranny to fix.

    Are you sure it's not the clutch pedal squeeking?
    *another common problem*

    Ya, I have that going on as well. I know how to fix that one. Ok, I just moved and do not have a heated garage for this winter. Does the throw out typically just grenade or do you boys think I can nurse it through the winter because I would prefer to do the repair on my own.

    I would say throw out bearing for sure. How long has it been since you first started hearing the whining noise? Do you drive many miles each day?
