You might just need a synchro.

You need a slave cylinder and possibly a clutch kit. 
Contact www.twosrus.com for parts. If this car has over 80K I would replace both and get the flywheel resurfaced and save the headaches that can creep up later on.

Answer:

On the second generation MR2 and MR2 Turbo (1991 through 1995 USA, and 1991 through 1999 for the rest of the world), it is on the FRONT side of the engine, between the engine and the rear firewall of the cabin area. It is the right side of the car.

Crunching when changing gears on a pajero


check the oil level of the gearbox, if level is low or oil is too thin will cause it to crunch. put an 80w90 gear oil into it if needs fill or change/ also check the clutch is fully disengaged. maybe clutch hydraulics have air in the system, this will reduce the travel of the clutch fork and not fully disengage the clutch. to see if its the clutch hydraulics select 1st gear push in the clutch and start the engine, if it starts to creep forward check out the hydraulics. if all this ok, prob be the synchro rings internal in the gearbox

Hi I have just now noticed the MR2.Former Jeep owner but now have fallen for the MR2's 1991-1993 models.Cant drive a stick anymore so what concerns do the automatic transmissions have ? Any differences...


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

The MR2 auto transaxles are very reliable units. Just change the ATF with the correct fluid every 30,000 miles. If it has high mileage, 90 + K miles, and is a dirty colour, I'd recommend a transmission flush. This will remove all of the dirty fluid from the system.

The MR2 non-turbo was a fun car, and had very few comon failures.

Try to stay away from the turbo cars, the turbos are know to fail, and the parts and labour to replace the turbo is very expensive.

The MR2s are rather quirky when it comes to servicing the cooling system, you have to bleed the air out. The necessary procedure is in the owner's manual, or online.

Other than those items, the MR2 is a very decent and reliable car. A little noisy, with the engine right behind you, but, that is part of the fun.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

GEARBOX PROBLEM


I hate to break it to you, but one of the most common problems with a 90-95 mr2 turbo or non turbo, is the transmission. It's sad to say but it sounds like your syncros. It is one of the biggest flaws with the car. I love mr2's. I have owned several, and everyone of them have had the same problem. It's most common in the shift between 1st and 2nd gear, but it will eventually start to go in every gear. up shift or downshift. It will start gradually, and eventually get to the point where you wont be able to put it into gear. Makes racing a nightmare. If you slam it into gear when it's not going, you run the risk of grinding your gears, bending your forks, and other various costly repairs with your transmission. I suggest that you don't punch it. Shift before 4500 rpms in all your gears until you can afford a complete rebuild. When you do that make sure you use the proper gear oil. If you use a cheap one, or have a non toyota mechanic do it, they may use a gear oil that will actually destroy your syncros faster. Trust me the car is a wonderful car. You won't have more fun in another car until you drive a Corvette z06.... I say that just cuz it is the only other car in the world I will drive beside my mr2.......Best of luck mate.

Hi On driving a Suzuki Vitara JLX 96 P Reg


Sounds like a clutch problem to me.
So, with the engine off, can you select all gears? If yes, your gearbox is probably OK.
And now with the engine idling, can you select any gears with out crunching? If this is difficult, then try this next test in an area where movement forward or backwards won't be a problem.
With the engine OFF, foot ON the clutch, the handbrake OFF, and in 1st gear, start the car. BE READY TO TURN IT OFF.
If the car moved forward as you cranked the engine, then your clutch is not adjusted properly or has worn out. That is more-than-likely the smell you got before - burnt clutch disc from it slipping.
You can drive it, but every time you want to start off, you'll have to turn the engine off, select 1st then start the engine. Accelerate slowly, making sure the revs don't rise faster that you're speeding up, and change gear by judging engine revs between gears.
Don't keep driving it as it is, as you WILL have gearbox problems if you don't fix the clutch.

Grinding sound


What is happening to you is worn out sincronizers in you transmission. They are used to mesh the gears between shifts. They are made of brass and wear out easily on the 2nd gen cars. It grinds normally going into 2nd gear and into 3rd if its really worn. If you want a stronger transmission buy the 93 and up 3rd gen tranny. It is an upgraded transmission with dual sincros. Yours does need rebuilt. Or you can find one on the MR2 board for a good price used. I prchased a 93 trans for $1000. An older one will be about 200. Also it depends if its turbo, lsd or not. Good luck!

Hi i have a mr2 mk2 8 valve 1990 and i can't select reverse and 5th gear pops out under load and also grinds


You probably have a damage synchronizer gear for the selection of speed. Only way is to bring down transmission and overhaul completely. No rremedy for this, have to do it the hard way.

Engine revving problem


Sounds like your idle speed is way too high, should be somewhere around 800-1200 rpms. I would check for vacuum leaks.
