Reverse Gear Problem. Celica 140

1 post in this topic

Hi all, I have owned a 2002 Toyota Celica VVTi 140 for the past 5 years and noticed that the reverse gear is progressively more difficult to engage. When I first bought the car it was difficult to not pull off at lights in reverse as it was a little too easy to find. Now however, selection of reverse involves a bizzare wrist flicking manoeuvre to avoid crunching it in. The other gears are not a problem (although high speed downshifting has always been a bit hit and miss), there is plenty of brake fluid in the reservoir (I assume its shared with the clutch).

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I would be very appreciative of any advise anyone might have.

Regards Mark

      Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post but I need some help and thought I'd come to the experts! I have a Celica (2004) and have had it for 6 months. Last month the ABS light started flashing when stationary. Local garages can't find a fault but Toyota said it was a faulty ECU unit so I had this replaced with a secondhand ECU but I still have the same problem. It has now cost me around £300 and I'm no closer to it being fixed. Has anyone else had this problem or can suggest what I might try to fix it. It's an MOT failure so I don't have long to sort it out. Thanks so much for any help you can give me! Jackie

      First time post and I would like to have everyone's car pictured in one place. Also, if anyone could suggest any alloy wheels to suit my car (without lowering it) it'd be appreciated.

      Thanks everyone!

      Hello all,
      I am on the hunt for all of the pieces mentioned above: turn signal lenses (front); rear tail light lenses; and a driver's sideview mirror (LHD) for a 1981 Hiace. 
      If you can help, please post here or message me directly.
      Thank you!
