SOURCE: 2001 Toyota Celica GTS Clutch

i paid a friend to do it because it's a lot of work! if you haven't already treid to or got it done just know that when my friend did it; it took him like 8 hours (he'd never done one on a celica, but had done them on american cars) so if your not familiar with it... not a good idea to do alone. I watched him do most, but i'm not the best to talk to about it.(plus i have a 2000GT) Some of the parts that i can remember that he took out to get to the clutch were the front driver's side tire, the axel on the same side, ....some other parts in there....and ALSO parts on top...the intake also had to be taken out just to have enough room to do the job. parts are cheap...just ask for a clutch kit at auto zone or whatever. around $150. another random tid bit that might help is make sure to tighten the engine mounts really good afterwards or else it will jump around in there when you turn it on and cut it off. buy gear oil before you start as well because you will need to put some in after the new clutch is in. i will need to put the car on a real lift... you need a lot of space underneath and on top to work. and most likely two people. well hope some of this helped.

SOURCE: How to remove ignition cylinder from Toyota Camry 1993

Here are step-by-step instructions for the removal and re-installation of your ignition cylinder on your Toyota. Hope this sheds some light on the subject and solves your problem. Have a great day!




  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If equipped with an air bag, wait at least 90 seconds before working on the vehicle.
CAUTIONSome models covered by this guidemay be equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), which uses an air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column and instrument panel, disable the SRS, as described in .
  1. Remove the lower steering column cover. Unfasten the ignition switch connector under the instrument panel.
  2. Remove the screws which secure the upper and lower halves of the steering column cover.
  3. Turn the lock cylinder to the ACC position with the ignition key.
  4. Push the lock cylinder stop in with a small, round object (cotter pin, punch, etc.).
On some vehicles, it may be necessary to remove the steering wheel and combination switch first.
  1. Withdraw the lock cylinder from the lock housing while depressing the stop tab.
  2. To remove the ignition switch, unfasten its securing screws and withdraw the switch from the lock housing.
To install:
  1. Align the locking cam with the hole in the ignition switch and insert the switch into the lock housing.
  2. Secure the switch with its screw(s).
  3. Make sure both the lock cylinder and column lock are in the ACC position. Slide the cylinder into the lock housing until the stop tab engages the hole in the lock.
  4. Install the steering column covers.
  5. Connect the ignition switch wiring.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hi,
Have you ever replaced the shocks / struts? Are you sure your tire does'nt have a bump spot or out of round? I usually will swap the tires front to back to see if the vibration or bumping moves, good way to tell if the tire is bad. I've gotten some pretty poor tires before, some do have factory flaws that will cause that. Shocks will cause that also. Sway bar pins / joints that are worn can cause that also.

In my 1992 toyota celica, the key wont turn


I've had the same problem with a few older Toyotas. Most likely you need to take your ignition lock cylinder to a qualified locksmith and have it overhauled. Another option is to purchase an all new lock cylinder, but then unless you don't mind having a different key for the ignition, you would have to take the new cylinder to the locksmith to get it re-keyed to match the other locks on the car. Look for a locksmith with a AAA certification. You can order a new cylinder at a reasonable price from sellers on eBay or from www.rockauto.com.

Removing the cylinder is not too difficult - refer to your car's service manual for complete details. Basically you will need to remove the trim panel covering the lock, undo the fastener bolts/screws, and then usually there is a tab on the underside of the cylinder that you will need to push in in order to slide the cylinder out. The catch is that you will need to get the key into the ACC position in order to pull out the cylinder.

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

I have a 1994 Toyota Celica, lately when im in neutral the rpms begin to drop and when i give it gas the car stalls out or it stays under 2 rpms after second gear.


Look and listen for vacuum leak Free,Change air filter $15, change fuel filter$20, replace fuel pump$300.
S
With motor running and your head under hood listen for hissing sound. Then start replaceing filters first air filter , then fuel filter. Check fuel pump by listening for humming noise at gas cap when you first move key in ignition to on (when the red lights go on). Have someone listen for you at the gas cap.(NO hum need pump)

Celica ignition removal


OK. Look directly under the steering column. You will see the silver ignition lock assembly, with a band that covers the round column housing. Holding the band onto the lock assembly, do you see something that resembles two "broken off" bolts? This is where the Dremel comes in handy. What you need to do is to score, scratch, chisel, anything, a slot that you can put a screwdriver into. The bolts are not tight, the heads break off to prevent people from removing them to rip off the ignition/steal the car. After getting the slot cut, use a screwdrive to rotate the bolts out. I would guess that a drill and an "easy-out" would work, but, I have never tried it. The Moto-Tool works great.
After you get the bolts out, the lock falls off of the column. Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYA. The graciousness of a FIxYa rating on my solution would be greatly appreciated.
