Question about 2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder

MR2 Spyder with SMT throttle failure

Occasionally when I depress the throttle on my Spyder I get nothing....nada. After a few seconds unable to move in a busy intersection the throttle response returns and all is well for a while. This is a fly-by-wire throttle and I get no codes from the ECU/TCU. This has happened on upshifts and downshifts as well as accelerating from a complete stop. Toyota has no fix and as I'm past warranty they have no real desire help. MAF is clean, TPS is good and I have done the ECU re-learn twice but the problem persists. I love my Spyder but am most concerned about the dangerous predicament it places me in.

You might check the throttle cable for adjustment..check your timing too is sound like your not getting enough fuel or clogged filter or injectors sort of that justify before make your conclusion..

Cruise control in my 2003 mr2 spyder suddenly went out


check the fuse for the cruise control from the driver side located on the left side of the dashborad. Make sure the fuse is not blown out.
If it bad, change it out but make sure it is the same rated fuse.

Good luck

Mr2 transmission


use only OEM Toyota trans fluid. If there is one lesson I learned with my MR2, its that Toyotas own trans fluid is the best. Yes, its a few dollars more, use it anyway.

As for your top, there is a product called Amazing Roll off. Its for boat canvases and its simply the best thing i've ever used. try it, you wont be disappointed.

MR2 after 2 mins of starting the smt light comes on.


it sounds like the clutch actuator is worn out.
The clutch actuator has 2 parts:
1. the clutch master cylinder
2. the clutch slave cylinder.

Try to replace the slave cylinder first, and if it is still not solving the problem, then try to replace the clutch master cylinder

Good Luck
