I took it back to the mechanic and he said I needed another transmission. Later when I took my car to a new mechanic right when I got to the shop I couldnt change gears at all. I checked the oil and it was 2 quarts low which is odd because I still have 50 miles til my next oil change. I have a 2001 toyota celica gt 5 speed manual and my transmission needs to be replaced. It was stuck I finally got it bk to the gas station and forced the gears into place so I could get it home.
Check engine light did not come on. And it has already failed. No signs where showing that there was a problem. Im going to look at cars tomorrow and see if there is any way to get a trade in. I asked the guy why it only lasted 2 years and his reply was the type of transmission in my car doesnt last very long and he didnt know how many miles were on it. It will be down by the crankshaft pulley. This design did not have a catch which could prevent transmission in vehicle from failing due to stress.
. If it is only struggling to to engage, it could be the clutch that is faulty. The last mechanic I took it to said that this problem should not be happening with a standard transmission at the mileage it's at. Luckly they replaced it all under warrenty. Should I just get a new car? Does any other speed of the trans show any abnormalities? Get bk in the car to continue and can't get the clutch out of 1st gear.
Thank you so much for your advise and help I appreciate it. Not able to shift gears. The peddle felt find just the gears not wanting to work. And now I have to get rid of my car I cant afford to fixand try to buy a new car I cant afford, well I hope karma comes back to him. When driving vehicle would jerk. They informed me that the tramission was blown causing the clutch to go out as well. It was a struggle to get it in reverse and first.
I opened a case with Toyota and was told that I had to have it looked at by Toyota mechanics. Well I think the place I took it to and got the used transmission 2 years ago was not good. Later when I drove home no problems at all. After pulling off the road and turning the car off to inspect the noises. You won't be getting much if the trans is bad.
Have taken vehicle to dealership. I took it to several mechanics and was told it was something with the transmission. As to how much the car is worth, it depands on other things and present value. Under normal circumstances, the transmission, especially manual, should last longer than the engine. More likely you jave a clutch problem rather than a transmission and this should be the last you see of him. The car was taken to the dealer. The transmission is purely mechanical and the gears don't just disappear, I think there is a problem with the clutch.
There is nothing much you can do about reporting them as they have not done anything now. A little filling of metal is expected to be stuck to the drain plug magnet and nothing to worry if you do not have any abnormal noises while driving. Dealership informed consumer that this was a common problem in these vehicles. I towed my car home and was looking under the hood. I have gotten 2 other opinions and they said its the transmission.
But now I can't figure out the problem. I dont know who to trust or what to do? I dont want to put alot of money into it if it isnt going to last very long and my car is old with a lot of mileage. Was informed by mechanic that problem were the valves in engine. I turned my car off and and and struggled till I got it in. The rpms dropped throwing the car out of gear several times until we could get off the road again. If the gears are popping out, that is not good news, likely to be transmission internal fault. Is the pedal pressure felt when pedal is high or only when it is low? Im a girl and I dont know much about cars and I think he took advantage of me.
If you are taking to the same mechainc, I guess you would need to be looking for a new one, this guy does not seem to know what he is doing or is not an honest one. Jdm 2000-2005 celica gts 5 speed manual transmission, came out of low mileage car in japan, in great working condition, actual pics are shown, Free shipping is only for commercial address or terminal pick up and only for 48 lower states! I just dont know what to do. Then when I drove to the mechanics it acted again. We continued to get back on the highway. The car is driving fine til I stop for gas. On my way to richmond which is a 6 hr drive from where I picked the car up.
