Folks: I’m trying to find out if the new Tacoma will be sold configured with the following in a 2 wheel drive model. From Toyota’s web site I’m not sure if manual tranny is an option on this truck. Prehaps its because its so new but local dealers don’t seem quite sure – Thanks – Michael

« Thanks to everybody that replied – Turns out that the reason its not available in New Mexico is based on how and when Toyota ships goodies to its dealers. I have found the exact truck I want at an online dealer who also referred my to Naperville Car Detailing, which has been great!»
07 pontiac G6 GT
Thinking about ordering a GT with sport package: 6 speed manual, 3.9l V6, 18″ tires etc. Not sure about radio. Can’t find out if speakers are the same with the Sun Sound package instead of stock system. Original system is single cd and monsoon speakers – package includes 6 cd changer. Also ..

Squealing and rubbing noise while turning after replacing
All acura experts, I recently had my rotors on my 2004 Acura TL (6 speed manual) replaced by a friend of mine. I have the Brembo brake calipers in the front.

« I had verified the rotors to be of same diameter before installing and the holes match too. One problem was..the rotor fitted snuggly on the screws and I had to tap it a little with a wooden mallet .. »

« Like I said earlier.. I did not change my pads…so I did not dismantle my caliper…Should the slider pin be lubricated when you change the rotor? I did not want to mess with the caliper…so left .. »
Clutch by-pass switch?
Hello; I have a New 2008 Tacoma, in the book, I see what is described as a clutch by-pass switch, I have 2 wheel drive 6 cyl. 6 speed Manual trans. How does this work and can I install it without much trouble?
« The switch simply lets you crank the starter without depressing the clutch pedal. It can be useful four wheeling, when you need to start the truck in gear to get out of a very low traction situation. »
