Rebecca Young (Somerville, Massachusetts) - 1996 Toyota Tacoma
Rebecca’s clutch is making a creaking noise--she hears it when she pushes down on the clutch. She also has to push down really hard on the clutch to shift. It’s been getting progressively worse, but seemed less bad after she went away for a week and didn’t drive. Tom and Ray think her clutch is wearing out--happening gradually over time. Could be the fork or throw-out bearing going. Also possible is that the clutch fork just needs lubrication.
