Question about 1995 Toyota Celica

Open Question

95 Toyota Celica GT 2.2 won't accelerate.

I have a 95 Celica GT 2.2 with auto transmission. Last night I was driving along the highway when all of a sudden I heard something break/snap underneath my hood. The speedometer went down to zero as the car started to slow down. I tried to accelerate but the car wouldn't move any faster and I hear a metallic/grinding noise when I step on the gas. Smoke started coming out from under the hood. It seemed as if the grinding/metallic noise caused the smoke. The car finally came to a complete stop on the side of the road. I turned the car off and turn it back on. Engine starts fine. While on PARK, I step on the gas. Everything seems fine. But when I put the car on DRIVE and step on the gas, the car won't accelerate and the grinding/metallic noise comes back and gets louder and faster as I step further down on the gas pedal. Had no choice but to get my car towed back home. Last time this happened 3 years ago, it turned out to be the timing belt. As I looked under the hood, I noticed some sort of leak around where the timing belt is. Looks like oil or transmission fluid. I can't really tell if the timing belt had torn because it's covered up and I would have to remove other parts to get to it. Could the problem be the timing belt or something else? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

!996 toyota celica gt stalled while driving and won't start up again.


Bendix has gone out on the starter. Replace starter. The spinning is the starter but it would not have gone out while "driving" so you may have another problem once you replace the starter.

Toyota Vista SV50 model / year 1999: I have used Dextron type 2 automatic fluid in the auto transmission. Could this be the problem for auto gears sticking in same gear too long when car is started in...


Hi, since you use a dextron type 2 automatic fluid then it is not cause of the sticking gear. Rather it should be as a result of a clogged transmission filter. A clogged transmission filtercan cause problems with changing gears because it will not allow the fluid to pass through the valve body or valve solenoids at the proper pressure. Without pressure, the plates won't move properly and you won't be able to easily change gears. This can be symptomatic either by itself or along with burnt or worn out transmission fluid, and both should generally be replaced at the same time, rather than just replacing one or the other.

2002 Toyota Celica with a strange shifting problem.


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.
