I have a Toyota Celica 1995 2.2 L manual transmission when the engine is "hot' or it has been running for a while, is hard to Go into 2, downshift from 3 to 2 also sometimes struggles to go into rever
The tranny is probably on the way out. The synchronizers are what synchonize the spinning shafts and gears inside the tranny by braking and trying to match the speed of one shaft to another. If they are worn, they will have trouble.Also check the oil level on the old tranny. You might find it is low on oil and you might be able to buy some time. You could try draining the transmission when it is warm. Look at the oil and if it is loaded with a metallic sheen or worse: with particles, the tranny is toast and not worth repairing so just have a good used low mile tranny put in. Pretty cheap job and easy with a 4 cyl engine. As a last desperation, you might try putting in some synthetic tranny oil like amsoil or Royal purple. But if the synchros are shot, so is the tranny. Make sure you drain the junkyard tranny to check for particles before throwing it in. If it is full of metal,take it back. On second thought, put that synthetic tranny oil in the junkyard tranny. Tranny oil should be changed very 50 to 100 K and if you or someone grinds gears, even more often!

Removed radio from 1995 celica and now the turn signals do not work
Start with checking you automotive fuses to see if fuses going to the turn signals were blown by accident. Also check to see that wires that plug into your fuse block or power distribution block were not inadvertently pulled out. One of the signal light wires might have been pulled out. Also check to see that your flasher module was not pulled out of it holder. The flasher module is also sometimes called the blinker module. It controls the rate of blinking. If disconnected, your lights won't blink. Somehow you have lost 12 volt power because you have likely disconnected a wire when pulling your radio.
