Clutch release bearing went out and it had to be replaced.
Transmission had to be replaced due to bearing wear. There was no problem with the clutch release bearing but the shop didn't know that till the car was put back together. I went with a very low mile used transmission because a new one was to much money.
5 speed tranny had to be replaced for the second time in 500,000 km's. It seems to be a common problem for the 5 speeds.
Car was driven to store and then wouldn't go into reverse. It was towed to a shop. It was the original clutch so that was repaired. After repair it still wouldn't go into reverse and was not running correctly. It was diagnosed with transmission trouble. A used transmissions was ordered and should be delivered next week. It will be installed and hopefully the problem will be over. I called Toyota and reported the problem in case they ever decide there is a problem.Manual transmissions seldom go bad.
