Question about Toyota MR2

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder with only 55,000 miles. It is completely stock, no mods. Recently it has lost much power and has a rattling noise above 3k rpm. Also it won't rev past 5k. Any ideas?

Get ECU error codes read at your favorite auto parts store (ask nicely). That should give you a starting point. This is the first thing a dealer would do.

    I have a scan tool. No codes detected.

    My best guess is a fuel supply problem not identified (but unusual) by the error codes.

Mr2 Spyder rattling noise from engine

the noise is the heat sheild area that is rattling around i have the same problem. I was told it was 'pinking' whihc is when the fuel is not quiet right ( as toyota s are designed to run on 95 octane ) but i had metal parts that where loose around the heat sheild and i had them welded back on. Get them mechanics to have a look - it cost me about £60

My Toyota Mr2 Spyder is rattling

Pound on the catalytic converter, you will probably find your rattle inside, if so, you will need a new one, also check for any loose clamps or rings that have come loose, just pound on your exhaust with the side of your fist, you should find your rattle, or sometimes the heat sheilds above the exhaust come loose.
