    2004 Celica clutch is slipping after car is underway .Say you are going 30 and accelerate the clutch will slip

    It sounds like your clutch plate has worn away so slips when under pressure ie,pulling up hill or a heavy right foot.An easy way to test this is to pull your hand break on and try to pull away,if your revs lift without pulling the car then its slipping, there are clutch kits out there for around 50-70,they come with a new clutch plate,new bearing and a new preasure plate.If you do the job yourself make certain that no oily hands or grease gets anywher near the new clutch plate as i found out to my expence.It slipped as the old 1 did so had to do the job twice.Good luck and hope this helps.

    Engine revs but no acceleration

    Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
    Follow one of the two following statements:
    1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
    2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

    Can't get out of park. I already pushed the butten and nuthing.

    There is a brake safety interlock to ensure your foot is on the brake before you can put it into gear. If it isn't working properly, you wont be able to take it out of park.

    Loses power on steep grade

    Sounds like you need a clutch replacement.

    Try this. Go somplace where there are no cars, and no possibility of running into anything. Stop the car. Set the park brake. With the engine running, put the vehicle in 1st gear. Hold the foot brake pedal, and give it gas, and let out the clutch slowly.
    If the engine does not stall real quick, the clutch disc is bad.
