  1. Celica Forum
    I was test driving a 99 gt that I'm planning to buy and everything was sound other than 1 thing...... it would not (no matter how high the rpms got) go into top gear. Don't know what's wrong because all other gears work just fine. Any suggestions or info is greatly appreciated!!! EDIT: im...
  2. T-100 Forum
    I recently got some great info on a problem with my T100 in this forum...the transmission won't shift into gear. I was instructed to check the neutral safety switch. OK...I guess I am having a senior moment when I look for it, because I cannot find it. The pics I found online show it on the...

    '03 Highlander problem: My '03 Highlander with 170k miles on it intermittently seems to pop out of and rapidly back into gear, accompanied by appropriate thumps and jerks, when reversing uphill. This symptom can be induced by holding the car stationary with the brake and giving it a little gas...

    Hi all, New here, and in dire need of help with '93 Camry which came to a screeching halt while driving @45MPH+. It was as though I had slammed on the brakes! Earlier in the day, it did not seem to pick up power like it does normally while going up entrance ramp onto the highway. Just before...

    Hi guys, i just recently swaped in my automatic transmission due to a transmission pump failure. I re-installed the tranny and I started the engine for 5 second to see if it would start. this tranny had very little oil. I replaced the gasket and filter for it and added 6 1/2 quarts of oil. oil...

  7. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    I was driving a Toyota highlander, and turned the car on. it turns out the car wasn't actually started, it was just on. I shifted gears to Drive anyway because I wasn't thinking. When I realized the car didn't start, I wanted to shift back to Park but the brake locked... so I went into Neutral...

    The automatic transmission on my '07 Camry SE just went kaput. It had 170k miles on it. I was hoping to get another 100k out of it. The dealer said it would cost $4300 for a "used, low mileage" transmission, which was way more than I was expecting. We just spent $$2700 on the recommended service...

    I have a 2000 Toyota Camry that has been leaking and the mechanic said it is coming from the front pump in the transmission. It isn't horrible, but I'd like to get it fixed since it does show up on the streets. I was wondering if anyone had an idea of what would be the price to fix this...

    I have a 2000 Toyota Camry V6 LE with 121,000 miles I've been noticing a leak and when I checked the oil on the road it had the red tint to in meaning it's transmission fluid. I would say it's a moderate leak. My transmission drives fine, but it will show up on the road if I'm parked over 3...

    I have a 2000 Camry 4-door sedan (V6.) that has been running fine until just recently, when I noticed it had started to leak a little. Once in a while when the car is at a stop (in Drive) and you're ready to go and you step on the gas pedal, the motor revs up but the car does not accelerate...

    Last year, while driving down a mountain road, my husband hit a boulder and it tore our transmission out. Several thousand dollars later, a brand new transmission was put in our 2008 Toyota Matrix. A year later (in late March 2012), our engine light came on. However, it quickly went back...

  15. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I just picked up a 2010 corolla base model with a 5 speed last week. I noticed a few days later that the 4th gear grinds after the car is fully warmed up. This happens whenever you shift into 4th above 2500 rpms. I'm going back to the dealer tomorrow. Any tips on what to say to get the...

    Hi Everyone, This is my first post! I have a 99 Camry CE 4cyl. My baby has been shifting a bit late and a tiny bit hard. I had an A/T flush recently and there were no particles or crap in the fluid and it wasn't even really dark so I don't think it is mechanical. I have thought of a couple...

    Rattle idle and slooooow to shift to first: Engine UPDATE Hello again. Y'all were very helpful in my troubleshooting of overheating of my 1995 Toyota 4 cyl. I had the water pump replaced by my friend, and he used the writeup here as his guidelines. And, indeed, there were impellers broken on...

    Hello, I have a 2001 Toyota Corolla S (4 door with automatic transmission). Last night I pulled into the driveway and turned the car off. I wasn't able to remove the key. The key wouldn't turn all the way to the position where you can remove it. I tried starting the car and driving up and...

  20. Cressida Forum
    i am a bit of a noob. But I bought a 1984 Cressida 2nd generation for $400. I got it towed home, put a new battery in it, and when I started it to go get the tags for it it started and ran fine. Only problem was, when I put it in Drive (automatic) it wouldn't go anywhere. Didn't even try. It...
