1995 celica 2.2L doesn't engage gear 2,4,r

are you saying this car is a A/T car, AUTO and not a stick?

say so, as both have 2,4 and reverse gears.

i think its a 5speed manual.

so the tip of the shifter is bad, remove it see plastic parts bad.

you could shift car , by moving the transmission levers and id bet it does work so that leaves. bad shift lever parts.

i bet the lever is real loose , so loose the H pattern is garbage

Just bought a 2000 Celica GT-S and the engine light came on 10 mins after I left the dealership. Went by autozone and they said it could be the shif solenoid. What is that and is it a bid deal? taking it...

They meant to say Shift Solenoid, Yes it's bad and yes it is expensive because it will take a transmission shop to replace it and they will want to rebuild the transmission. If this dealer did what I think they did they reset the fault codes while it was on the lot and after you drive the used car off the lot there was no warranty so be ready for a battle.

I had the same problem, replacing you thermostat should do the trick, i spent 8.99 on a new thermostat and 99 cents on a seal. For some reason engine temperature affects the transmission shifting. Good luck

2002 Toyota Celica with a strange shifting problem.

Automatic transmission are complex systems. The shifting of gears is based on a number of things like bands, speed, acceleration, deceleration, manifold back pressure, RPMs, temperature, etc.
Sometimes the electrical ground connection for the transmission can become corroded which causes poor shifting.
Since you are getting an error code, you should get a readout for it. Many auto supply store like Advance Auto will loan a meter for you to get a readout. Call up some stores to find one.
