SOURCE: 2002 toyota celica power door lock problem

Are you hearing any noises from the pass door when you activate the lock switch? If not, the power door lock solenoid has failed, and prob needs to be replaced. Pull the door panel & check to see if it is getting power to the solenoid in lock & unlock. If it has power, the solenoid is def bad.

SOURCE: What is the recommended octane rating for my 2002 Toyota Celica?

You have a high compression ratio engine and it's recommended to use 91 octane. You can get away with the 89 octane, but the higher the better for the engine. Less chances of detonation (Engine Knock), Take note that it's best to keep faith full on servicing the Engine for Oil and filter changes. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

SOURCE: 2001 toyota celica head sticks, possible oil pump.

Replacing the oil pump is a major job which involves tearing into the engine. I don't know what you mean that the cylinder head sticks, but I can assure you that just replacing the oil pump is not going to fix your problem.

Need to remove a trunk lock on a1989 Toyota celica GT how to do it

To remove the shift knob on a 2002 Toyota Celica GT just turn it rather hard counter-clockwise while in neutral. To remove the shift boot, it's easier to remove the carpet. There's a few screws that are under the carpet, remove them, then you can take out the boot.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

My 93 saab 900s only has third and fourth gears.

I know exactly what happened. Look at the shifter linkage at the transmission. It's under the hood, close to the firewall, directly forward of the shifter knob. There's a black plastic bushing or connecting piece which broke and became separated from a 5-6mm diameter steel rod. You will see it clearly if you look under the hood while someone else moves the shifter knob around from inside the car. Buy a small metal hose clamp (~1 inch diameter or less, coolant hose clamp, same size as the clamp on the coolant reservoir). Slide it over the steel rod, push the rod back into the broken plastic piece firmly, and slide the clamp over the broken plastic part, and tighten it up. You should have all 5 gears back. It happened to my 1997 900SE, and this improvised repair has been holding up fine for two years now. Good Luck.

2002 Toyota celica gt manual transmission hard to shift

Toyota Celica seams to run to that problem. If you have not done it yet you will need to take the center console out around the shifter and handbrake. There are in the shifter 2 white in color hard nylon type balls with pins holding them in place. Kind of like the size of a marble. One of two things can done if they are worn and loose while in place shifter may wiggle to easy. remove them and replace them with new ones with some grease. do not install dry,oiled or wd40. what has happened the shift pattern from a normal up down flow is not anymore straight and smooth line from one gear to the next but hanging up or binding between each gear mainly if you start driving fast or shifting fast and can happen while just normal driving and shifting..If there is to much stiffness than you need to be sure grease is coating them and they are not dry.
This causes harder to shift between gears and also hanging and binding.keep in mind the shifter also is mounted to the floor in four places.If there rubber and metal spacers they also can wear and cause or asst shift pattern to be off they no grease but replaced.The whole shifter would wiggle as well. if all is not the problem then you change the the cable.why the last check the cable? if it is not missing or damaged by the ***** eye it would be the hardest thing to do alone.Good luck11_21_2011_7_22_47_pm.jpg

2002 celica gt-s =transmission won't do anything. The shift lever on the tranny moves but the tranny doesn't do respond. it makes no noise.

I'd say it is a linkage problem. First get under the car and look to see if the linkage arm from the shifter is still attached. If it is and the other linkage arms on the transmissionare are still attached then you will need to check the shifter itself.

The shifter knob and shaft came off, it still shifts fine as long as I use the stick that is coming out from below.I noticed today that it was shifting a little different, like I was missing gears, then I...

Wow, well the shift knob has two contact points. One holds it in place and the other is contacting three different linkages at different times for gear selection How Manual Transmission Works , with pieces falling out or off, it causes things not to match up the way they're supposed to. I would get that fixed ASAP before you get stranded because it won't go into gear.

Replacing the broken cup holder

First, you must remove the floor console bezel (the trim piece that surrounds the shifter knob). The proper method to remove this involves removing the shifter knob first. This is held in by a small set screw on the "radio" side of the knob. To remove the screw, you will need a small "hex-key" (also known as Allen key or Allen wrench). The proper size is 3mm, but you can get away with using a size 7/64" if you need to. Once loosened, I believe that the knob pulls right up and off. Make sure you do not lose the small screw. Also be careful not to accidentally contact the tip-top of the shifter while the knob is removed, as this may break off the small black plastic tip, which will require much more work to repair and/or replace the entire shifter.
Next, you should be able to remove the floor console bezel by prying gently and carefully on the corners and sides of the piece with a tool called a trim stick, or if you do not have this tool, you can get away with using a small, thin-tipped flat head screwdriver. However, this will almost surely cause some aesthetic damage to the edges of the trim.
Once this bezel is out of the way, (you shouldn't have to remove the electrical connectors on the underside of the bezel for this specific job) there are 2 screws holding down the bottom of the cupholder assembly. I believe these are both Torx - type screws, which will need either a T10, T15, or T20 screwdriver bit to remove(I'm sorry but I don't remember exactly which of the 3 sizes are used). After these 2 screws are removed, open the armrest. On the TOP of the FRONT of the armrest, just above the cupholders, are 2 more screws which should be the same as the 2 bottom screws. Remove these, then lift the cupholder assembly up and forward to remove it.

To install, simply reverse the above procedure.

Because this is my first solution posted on this site, I would love to have your feedback. Please let me know how everything goes with this project. Thank you!

2002 Toyota Highlander AC main control

Before tearing out the AC control, does the temp knob feel loose or wobble alot more then the fan knob? If so pull the temp knob straight off. Look at the small nut around the shaft the knob came off of. Its common for them to come loose. Just tighten it up some and reinstall the knob. Your temp will work normally now.
This fix is for the manual system not the auto ac system.

2003 toyota sienna lift door knob broken. how to open the ldoor

The handle that broke had a little 'finger' that actuated the release mechanism. The only way to open the back hatch is to remove the inner panel and push on the release mechanism.

Once off, you can either a) buy a replacement handle (expensive) or b) do what I did and simply make a piece of L-shaped metal to lever the release mechanism from the outside.

If your handle is completely off of the door you can look up under the little plastic cover (that hides the handle) and see the slot on the right side that the release handle inserts into. You need to stick the lever into that slot, and angle it down about 30 degrees from horizontal to get under the latch mechanism, which unlocks the hatch if you pry it upwards.
