    Transmission specialist tested the car. He discovered air in the clutch servo such that first pump of pedal clutch was dragging. He bled it and cured the problem. First mechanic was sloppy.

SOURCE: What is the recommended octane rating for my 2002 Toyota Celica?

You have a high compression ratio engine and it's recommended to use 91 octane. You can get away with the 89 octane, but the higher the better for the engine. Less chances of detonation (Engine Knock), Take note that it's best to keep faith full on servicing the Engine for Oil and filter changes. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

SOURCE: 2002 celica gt-s =transmission won't do anything.

I'd say it is a linkage problem. First get under the car and look to see if the linkage arm from the shifter is still attached. If it is and the other linkage arms on the transmissionare are still attached then you will need to check the shifter itself.

SOURCE: 2002 Toyota celica gt manual transmission hard to

Toyota Celica seams to run to that problem. If you have not done it yet you will need to take the center console out around the shifter and handbrake. There are in the shifter 2 white in color hard nylon type balls with pins holding them in place. Kind of like the size of a marble. One of two things can done if they are worn and loose while in place shifter may wiggle to easy. remove them and replace them with new ones with some grease. do not install dry,oiled or wd40. what has happened the shift pattern from a normal up down flow is not anymore straight and smooth line from one gear to the next but hanging up or binding between each gear mainly if you start driving fast or shifting fast and can happen while just normal driving and shifting..If there is to much stiffness than you need to be sure grease is coating them and they are not dry.
This causes harder to shift between gears and also hanging and binding.keep in mind the shifter also is mounted to the floor in four places.If there rubber and metal spacers they also can wear and cause or asst shift pattern to be off they no grease but replaced.The whole shifter would wiggle as well. if all is not the problem then you change the the cable.why the last check the cable? if it is not missing or damaged by the ***** eye it would be the hardest thing to do alone.Good luck11_21_2011_7_22_47_pm.jpg

Need to remove a trunk lock on a1989 Toyota celica GT how to do it


To remove the shift knob on a 2002 Toyota Celica GT just turn it rather hard counter-clockwise while in neutral. To remove the shift boot, it's easier to remove the carpet. There's a few screws that are under the carpet, remove them, then you can take out the boot.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

Gearbox sometimes take a while to go into drive


if it is hard to shift when the vehicle is cold chances are that the oil in the gear box is too thick take it to a shop and try using a thinner oil than what is in the gear box and this will eradicae your problem
