Question about 1989 Toyota Camry

1989 Toyota Camry

My Camry 5 speed will not go into gear with the clutch depressed. When you first start the car, it will go into any gear but once it is in gear, it is stuck. Any ideas what this might be?

    Have knock in gearbox when cold( 5 speed manual) 30,000ks , Disappears when clutch pushed in or if gear lever is moved to a gear position without clutch depressed.Toyota say it is gear roll on and that some vehicles do that and nothing to worry about! Sounds like ******** to me ! Any ideas?

Hi,

On an 89 Toyota Camry with manual transmission, two possible reasons:

  • clutch;
  • release bearing
Try bleeding the clutch on the slave cylinder. If this does not prove to be corrective, you may have to have the transmission/clutch checked/repaired/replaced. In some instances, it could just be a sticking release bearing or clutch fork.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2001 Camry 5 speed. It starts but it will not move. I can change gears without pushing in clutch. One mechanic said it was clutch and a different one said transmission is out. Which is it?


The clutch is not transferring power to the gearbox, which then is not turning, so that you can select gears without the clutch.Possibilities are
- clutch assembly has failed, possibly by the splined driven plate hub coming adrift
- clutch driven plate has become very worn and has lost contact
- slave cylinder has stuck through corrosion (assuming a hydraulic clutch) and is holding out the clutch independent of the pedal. This can be determined by watching it while someone depresses and raises the pedal.

I think it is unlikely the transmission input shaft has fractured.

I have a 1989 Toyota Pickup 22RE Engine 5 Speed Manual Transmission - The problem is that the clutch slips on higher gears especially on cruise control when I encounter a hill. Can you tell me if there is...


If it's a hydraulic operated clutch, as I think it is, then no, there is no adjustment. Only the cable operated clutches were adjustable. But there is a clutch pedal height and free-play adjustment that needs to be correct. Freeplay distance is 3/16 to 5/8 inch, adjusted at the pedal end of clutch pushrod. I don't know the pedal height for your pickup (you'll have to ask some toyota person), but the adjustment is made near top of pedal where it contacts the stopper bolt.

1989 Toyota Tercel 5 speed stick trouble starting


sounds like your clutch safety switch, the switch that keeps the vehicle from starting unless clutch pedal is depressed, is not working.. the correct thing to do would be to buy a new one.. on the other hand cutting the wires and wiring them together will work just fine.. but keep in mind the vehicle will then start in gear with out pushing in the clutch pedal so use extra precaution when starting if you decide to take this route.. hope i could help

Gearbox or clutch problem


i guessed the rod that shifts the gear snapped. you said you can move the stick shift through all the gears without the use of the clutch. that is supposed to be impossible unless you are just holding the other end of the stick and the other end at the gear is not moving.

i am pretty sure you are for big bucks....

I have a 1989 camry the tramsmission was starting to slip on occassion in drive and reverse. While driving down the street without any warning I lost drive and reverse completely. Is there a vacuume pump...


Hi. It is not over for the transmission. But it is for the clutch system inside. Yes, the automatic transmissions got clutch(es) inside as well, they just work with the principle of centrifugal force. Once 1st gear reaches max rev, 2nd gear engages due to the mechanical energy generated inside, so forth and so on, ergo moving gears back and forth depending on speed. The trans repair costs for this camry should be around $500-$800 plus the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid). This repair, plus the adequate ATF, most preferably toyota ATF, will give your transmission life another 120,000 miles when 30,000 mile checks are made on time. Hope this will help.
