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

      I have a 2000 / 01 ish (W plate) Silver Celica, about 140k on the clock and I'm looking to see if someone wants it.
      I work abroad now and have tried to keep it going but as it's an old car it needs to be used constantly and I'm not here to do that.
      It currently needs a part replaced around the Power Steering fluid (a hose of some kind, mechanic said it was a 150 GBP part) and probably a new battery at some point soon, but apart from that it's a sound and good looking car. I've had it since around 2009. If I can't get any takers in the next day or so I will have it scrapped, but I think that would be a shame as it's been a brilliant car for me, I work in the US and it is just, sadly, not cost effective for me to keep it going.
      It would be a good car for someone. It has got through all it's last MOTs since 2009 with little issue and I've always had it serviced and repaired at a Toyota dealership. The engine management light comes on sometimes due to the cat converter getting old, she has her issues but I would rather someone who can keep her going take her rather than just scrap it. It is MOT'd until May next year but I will get the tax back on it unless someone wants to make a cash offer for the remaining tax (again until May 2017). The car is in Hampshire (PO8) and if someone wants it they will need to collect (steering is VERY heavy without the power steering fluid)
      I have no recent pics but I can get them if required ...
