You got the defective LUK clutch. Make sure they install an AISIN as replacement, or it will just happen again. It's not your driving.

That's what he's paid to say about these clutches.
#90 of 94 Tacoma Clutch Problem
May 06, 2012 (10:13 am)
2006 Toyota Tacoma, 4 cylinder, rear wheel drive 5 speed manual transmission. Last year I had my Tacoma at the dealers for the floor mat recall. When I went to start the truck, the clutch pedal stuck to the floor. Truck wouldn't move. Luckily being at the dealer, I left it with the dealer. Had 46,793 miles on it at the time so they repaired it under warranty and according to my invoice: used 2.3 Tech hours and replaced clutch cover assy and throw out bearing.
Now 3 days ago and about exactly 12 months and 10,000 miles later, I went to drive the truck. Pushed the clutch pedal in and it stuck to the floor and would not return by itself. Truck would not move. Was not at home so had to have the truck towed to a local repair shop. Called the dealer who did the work last year and now being out of warrany, they said it wasn't covered. I did call National Toyota and got a case number started.
I am 75 years old and not new to driving vehicles with manual transmissions. All but 4 of the vehicles I have ever owned had manual transmissions and I have never replaced a clutch or throw out bearing. I do not abuse the clutch.

well i hope they installed u a AISIN clutch as a replacement. The mexican LUK has a very bad rap. Price qouted is OK for the work involved. good luck with new one. My 05 V6 6speed on the stick is still going good with 75000 miles on it so far.

I'm the owner of the Tacoma with the stuck clutch pedal as detailed above in message #90.
I got the truck fixed at my local garage mechanic. He diagnosed the problem as the clutch master cylinder. He over nighted a replacement and got it fixed the next day.
Total cost was about $300.00 which inclded $122.00 for the new master cylinder, 2 hours labor at $78.00 per hour, brake fluids and taxes. Was out of warranty and dealer would have charged me at least that much and I didn't have to have the truck towed at about $100.00 to the dealer where I bought the truck. My local mechanic thought that it was odd that the MC failed that quick.
Hope this helps someone.
#93 of 94 2007 Tacoma Clutch question
Aug 01, 2012 (6:44 pm)
I recently bought a 2007 tacoma, and, I hate to confess this, but I kill it with the clutch quite frequently. I have been driving standards for many years now (I've never owned an automatic!) and I have never had this problem before. I actually got the truck from my dad who was getting rid of it to get an automatic (he told me his hip was giving him trouble and he was having problems getting his foot on/off the clutch). I wonder after driving it, if maybe it was less to do with his hip and more to do with the clutch. After checking out the posts here, I see there seem to be a few issues with the clutch. Do you suppose my problem is an early indication of something to come or is there some adjustment I can make that may solve this problem. I'm rather tired of looking like an idiot at traffic lights!!!!

I have a 98 ex cab 4x4 Last year I had to replace my clutch slave cylinder my pedal was going to the floor all by itself and staying there until I manually pulled it up. After replacement of slave problem was un changed so the master was replaced after which the problem was better but never resolved to my expectation. My clutch / pedal was never the same . about 6 months later i was hearing a lot of squealing noise every time i started to compress the clutch pedal. Now i get the clutch, pressure plate and all that replaced. ( had a clutch kit put in it) the old clutch wasn't even worn out yet it still had a lot of life left. yet every person /place that listened to it diagnosed it the same. At time of clutch replacement my slave cylinder was again replaced the other one was shot . It hadn't been barely 6 months old. Needless to say the clutch pedal still isn't right i took it into a shop they bled the clutch said there was no air in the lines at all. The pedal sill goes down by itself only now it just goes a little ways or it doesn't come back up all the way. Also a new problem of the shifter getting stuck in neutral or in a gear and doesn't want to go into 2nd gear very easy.The clutch wont disengage or at times engage until i shut off engine, or kill it, then start it back up. then it will shift into gear.. WTF is going on here anyone have a clue?
I'd like to add that I hadn't put 20000 on my truck I actually got the receipts with the truck of the clutch being replaced just before i bought it. 2 clutches 2 slaves and master cylinders in 20000 miles and it still doesn't work right . This is rediculouse!
