Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Gearbox or clutch problem

I have a 5 speed manual 1997 Toyota Camry wagon. At an interection tonight on the way home, I heard what I can only describe as a loud crack.
Once this happened I couldn't get the car moving, the motor seemed OK, however I couldn't engage a gear, I could move the stick shift through all the gears without the use of the clutch.

Im I in for big $$$$

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....

tnx 4 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.

Won't accelerate, jerks and loud clanking noise


My new 2007 Camry V6 did the dance you describe at about 2000 miles. It turned out to be a bad transmission, the so-called "snap ring" problem. They replaced the transmission under warrantee. However the new one did the same thing at 1800 miles on that transmission. I sold the car back to Toyota and bought a Hybrid. You need a Toyota dealer to look at it. Good luck!

I just got a 93 manual 5 speed v6 4cam camry...barely made it home as it was in every gear hardly moving with really high rpm. I am going to add some dot 3 break fluid as it is low. I hope this works, it...


I am sorry to say that this is a classic sign of a worn clutch. You most likely need a new clutch, consisting of a driven plate and pressure plate. It is possible also that your clutch pedal travel is out of adjustment, and it is not moving far enough to fully engage the clutch for drive. See the link below.

I doubt the hydraulic fluid will assist because this releases the clutch, that is, with no clutch hydraulic fluid, the clutch would not release the trans to allow you to shift gears.

It is possible to do the clutch job yourself, but not easy. Let us hope it is just the pedal travel.

My 1997 Toyota Camry Manual 5 speed is slipping a little bit and i need to know how much fluid the transmission takes and what kind. I also want to know what it means when my rpms go up but your speed only...


Sounds like you need to replace the clutch if the rpm's increase alot and the speed increases a small amount the clutch is starting to have excess slippage. If you go to Autozone web site and search a bit you should be able to find the needed type of transmission fluid and quanity needed.
