Celica 190 Changing Gear

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a Toyota Celica 190 on a 2002 plate, when I'm in lift and try to change gear it's really hard to select the next gear, just wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem and any ideas what it could be?

Any replies would be appreciated, thanks.

Hello Short190,

I also have this same problem, my model of Celica is:

T-Sport 190 2004

Seems to only be an issue for my when in lift and from 2nd to 3rd gear - would also appreciate a reply guys (:

The gear selector bushes can go, this can cause stiff gear changes, thrust bearing, problems with gearbox or clutch.

Could also be syncros on gearbox, as lift is quite aggressive on the box

Thanks for the reply armouredfist, any idea roughly on the price of getting the bushes changed or the syncros sorted?

No idea, never had to repair a gearbox, but they're not usually cheap.

I would take it to a garage to have a look at to confirm what it could be.

Normally supercharged 190's need replacement gearboxes, but I have heard of normal 190's going. As previously said, it's normally tied into lift.

I had the same problem when changing gear in the lift it kinda got stuck but with a bit more of a push it went in. I thought it was time to get a new clutch as the car was nearly touching 100,000 miles when I replaced it, it was like a new car it sprung into each gear with no problems it set me back £480 but worth it.

Hi guys any update here?

From your responses it sounds like the clutch...and I have the same issue!

It started today and i noticed I have to slam the clutch pedal to the floor before I

could get a gear. This made me think 'clutch'. Then later in the day it was a

real pig to change in lift.
