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

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.

Toyota MR2 spyder engine failure


when an engine overheats that bad , the cost to rebuild is generally close to a fully reconditioned exchange engine
check the wreckers / junk yards for a good engine of the same family group as is on the compliance plate /build plate on your car ( many such places import engines with low miles/klm that are in top condition
the rebuild will include new head or head rework , new pistons and rings , bearings , engine re-bore and all of that will not include the labour charges
burning a motor is not an inexpensive experience and that is why I suggest a second hand motor or a service exchange motor for an accredited engine reconditioning shop

When the weather is warm...


Hot weather equals thinner oil equals rattles


If the engine is a high miler try using a multigrade with a higher viscosity or dump a can of STP or Wynns into the engine to bulk out the oil when it is hot

2003 toyota mr2 spyder 5 speed transmission grinding noise


Here is what is going on. When you push in the clutch pedal you remove the connection between the engine and the transmission. At this time all the parts in the transmission stop rotating.Since the only parts in the transmission that can rotate without moving the car are the input parts we can safely assume that the noise can only be from there.This can be a transmission input bearing. Worn Synchro mechanism (allows the transmission to shift without grinding the gears)Low fluid in the tranny. Or a bad clutch component. Top off or change the fluid. If it still makes the noise you need to take it to a tranny shop.

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.
