Question about 2002 Toyota MR2 Spyder

1 Answer

03 Toyota mr2, clutch noise. clutch replaced a year prior. 2 weeks before i heard some noise when shifting. 1 week before it was hard to shift a few times. then one night after driving home i parked and then tried to leave the car was in n. and tried to shift and it just grinded the gears. figured out that if i start the car in gear it would drive. in N. the car does not make any noise. with the clutch completely in the noise i hear is like a sander on a spinning disc. with the clutch in the grab area in N. the noise stops but as soon as i push it in all the way it starts again. my guess is release bearing? any ideas?

I hope its your release bearing, but I had this same issue with my Audi and it turned out to be I need a new transmission, the gears are not catching it sounds like. your synchros may also be off. Does it do this in every gear, and once it does move, does the clutch slip?

Put a cluth in a 1991 toyota mr2 turbo 2.0 and its still grinding when I shift gears.. what can I do to solvve my problem


have you replaced your fly wheel and release bearing when you changed your clutch disc?

if yes, then replace your transmission fluid.
also, if you know hot to adjust your clutch release, adjust it. adjust it in a way that you need to draw back your clutch pedal a little higher for the clutch to complete engage.

here are some ways to adjust your clutch.

1. for clutch using clutch cable. open your hood, locate for the transmision, and there you can see a cable that connects the transmision and the clutch pedal. loosen in up a little.
2. for hydrovac clutch with self correcting features. just pull your clutch pedal away from the floor for a few seconds and its done.
3. for hyrovac without self correction. manually adjust the push rod (metal rod that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master)

Clutch pedal sticks to the floor; the brake reservoir was low


I believe your pressure plate is broken and at a minimum will have to be replaced along with the clutch disk.

Well given the fact that any insurance company would deem this vehicle a "total loss" I take it you know you are trying to revive a dead horse.
Have you drained the transmission.
Manually remove the shift linkage and shift it by hand at the transmission. This should give you operation of trans if it does then work on the system prior to transmission.

Its really,really hard to shift into gear if at all


nothing wrong that an accredited mechanic can't fix
the clutch was installed incorrectly by the " mechanic" and the jib will have to be done again
suggest that you find an accredited qualified mechanic to do the job

Check the bushings at the motor for the shift cables, worn or binding. The MR2 club has a link to a company who makes brass replacement bushings.

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.

Gear shifting is hard to impossible


Synchronize the gears is what a trans does when you shift it, the part that makes this possiable is a part called a sycronizer ring, if they (4 of them) wear out prematurely then you end up with a hard shift issue, does this answer your question? I do assume your clutch is ok?
