Question about 2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder
How do I know which battery to get? And how do I know if it's the battery or alternator?
Battery-- you look in your owners manual for
battery Group (size) & Rating in CCA
The Battery & Alternator-- obviously need to be
tested at a repair shop-- unless you would like to
share your expertise with us here
You never asked a question You just asked if it was
whatever ?? What is ----a no turn or no start condition!!!

Testimonial: "Thanks Peter I imagine by now you can tell I'm mechanically challenged and just didn't want to call for the wrong service when my daughter mentioned the alternator! When I tried to start the car it just clicked which I think means the battery but the car only has 53k miles so I though it best to get another opinion from someone who was more mechanical!! Thanks so much for your response I appreciate your time !, "

my antenna just stopped working in my MR2 2003 Spider. The motor still runs but the antenna will not go up and down. It made a weird noise and I had to pull the top of the antenna up to stop the motor from sounding loud.
Should I replace this or can you disconnect it and push the antenna up and down?

SOURCE: 2003 MR2 will not idle
I had the same problem. My check engine light was on. Took it to the dealer and they checked the code. It was the throttle control motor failure. The good news is I got the wiring wet and that seem to be the problem. They reset the check engine light and it runs fine now. Bad news is if I had to get the motor replaced they said it would be about $1300.00 I hope things work out for you.

Here is what is going on. When you push in the clutch pedal you remove the connection between the engine and the transmission. At this time all the parts in the transmission stop rotating.Since the only parts in the transmission that can rotate without moving the car are the input parts we can safely assume that the noise can only be from there.This can be a transmission input bearing. Worn Synchro mechanism (allows the transmission to shift without grinding the gears)Low fluid in the tranny. Or a bad clutch component. Top off or change the fluid. If it still makes the noise you need to take it to a tranny shop.

Testimonial: "Great help...local store can detect, sell ( I install myself) and store can reset...sounds good."
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
