Question about 1990 Toyota Celica

2 Answers

Car not shifting

Everytime I drive my car now it is having problems accelerating past 20mph. It feels like it is in a low gear. After forcing it to accelerate it shifts. Everything is fine after this at any speed. But if I turn it off for a while, I go through the whole problem again.

Check the fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator to make sure they are all functioning properly. Also, check the catalytic converter to make sure they are not plugged.

While driving 20mph the rpms were up to 5 or 6. What could this be?


Hi Alaina:
I'd be guessing that it was in low gear.
Either it was accidently shifted to the low position, or the shift mechanism may not be functioning properly.

Hesitation while accelerating


The automatic tranny relies on vacuum pressure from intake manifold to signal when to shift. As the engine RPM increases, there's a proportional increase in intake manifold vacuum pressure. When vacuum pressure reaches a certain point, that signals the tranny to shift up to the next gear. When this vacuum hose has a crack or loose connection, it sends the wrong signal as to when to shift because vacuum pressure is dropping as air enters through the leak source, which the tranny interprets as a need to shift down to a lower gear. Replace all the vacuum hoses and see if this solves the problem. Look at the tranny and identify any air hose connected to it. These are vacuum hoses that you should replace, which usually there's only 1 or two connected to the air intake manifold.

This is normally caused by a faulty speed sensor in the transmission not allowing the computer on broad to know the proper mph the vehicle is travling for the right shift points.Try replacing the main speed sensor on the transmission located near the rear of the tailshaft and let me know from there.hope this helps,

Put a new transmission in and now the car from 0 to 30 has a slow start. but after that it pulls like its suppose to.


Try putting the transmission in low or 1st gear manually shift it down and try taking off as you accelerate shift it manually to 2 then drive. Did it take off like it should when you put it into low and then shift up or did you feel more power when it was in low if so it sounds like the transmission is not going into low gear but taking off in maybe second gear or even drive. When it takes off in any other gear but low it will start slow and sluggish and as you begain to gain speed it will start feel normal but thats because the speed matches the gear you in at that point.If my assistance was helpful please take the time to rate my assistance thank you.

Transfer case pops out of 4-lo


Either your linkage is not properly adjusted or the shift fork is a bit worn inside the transfer case. I have a bit of wear on my own and shift into low range while rolling with no load, between 5&20mph and it works fine except that I need to anticipate needing it before hand. One important rule...If it grinds, don't force it into gear. That will cause damage.
Also, if you just got it, change the oil in there...you have no idea when it was last serviced.
