2000 Toyota Celica ProblemsAutomatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages
The automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.
Sludge can build up in the engine because Toyota did not recommend frequent enough oil changes. Lexus will sometimes offer a discount on cleaning the engine if necessary. Owners who changed their oil every 3,000 miles did not experience these problems. This sludge build up can lead to excessive oil consumption.
The timing chain tensioner on the Toyota Celica is designed to use oil pressure to keep tension on the timing chain. When it develops a leak, it can no longer provide tension, and the timing chain will begin to make a slapping or rattling sound at all times.
If left in this condition, the timing chain may fail, leading to costly internal engine repair.
To correct this issue the timing chain tensioner must be replaced with the revised part.
