Recently the techometer on my 5-speed standard shift 1997 Toyota Tacoma (2.7 four-banger) has been fluctuating by many more RPMs than usual between shifts. I suspect a slipping clutch. Is this the most likely diagnosis?

    Sounds like a clutch problem alright but get it checked out before jumping to conclusions.
