2001 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.
The Toyota Celica may develop an issue with the fuel tank inlet pipe causing fuel to spill onto the ground when fueling the vehicle.
The problem is a faulty 'check valve' in the filler tube, which normally prevents overfilling. The check valve is known to break off and fall into the gas tank. This can cause:
-Engine stalling or hesitation (Rarely)
The correction for this issue is to replace the filler pipe that leads from the gas cap to the gas tank
Usually by 150,000 miles the AC system will need some attention, especially in climates where it is used often. Our technicians tell us that it is best to service the AC system every 2-3 years. This keeps the moisture in the system at a minimum which extends the life of the components.
