  1. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I have a big question My first car was a manual z32 NA v6 so I’d be shifting much earlier than in an mr2 and it felt smooth and went into gear easy but that was years ago only autos since then. What I want to know is how does shifting feel for you guys? As well as if mine just feels mr2 like. I...
  2. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hey all, My 2zz +c60 6 speed swap was just completed today. Every clutch related component except for the flywheel was brought over from my 5 speed to the 6 speed. When i had my 5 speed, the clutch was working flawlessly (atleast to me it was). when i first drove it today, the clutch felt...

    Hello, I'm brand new here - never posted before so I hope you'll tolerate my naivete and general lack of knowledge.

  5. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    TLTR version: After getting a new clutch and changing the transmission fluid I am having a some trouble putting the shifter into gear. There is resistance going in but it seems like it doesn't take a lot of force to go in, it's more of a matter of waiting half a second or so. Alternatively I can...

    Hello All, I have been a member since first MR2 purchase in 2015, but life started handing me a few bumps - I know no one has time for the details, the short list includes slipped disc in neck, and working away from home for 2 of last 3 years, a couple spans of un-employment, etc. Being...
  7. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I had my clutch and flywheel replaced and when I got the car back it had bad vibration when pushing the clutch down at higher rpm. The clutch height was lower when I got it back and I was able to bring the engagement point up. However, I couldn't change the pedal height, I read the midship...
  8. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    About 2K miles ago I installed a new after market clutch disc and pressure plate assy. This past season I noticed a strong clutch disc burning smell as I engaged the clutch from stationary on a moderate grade hill. Is this normal for a standard engine Mr2 or did they sell me a weak assembly...

    It is almost time to replace the original clutch on my stock 2ZZ. Before I just, blindly, go for another Toyota 1ZZ clutch, I thought I would find out what other SpyderChat members used when they put in a replacement clutch? Thanks In Advance! Paul
  10. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Driving my (new to me) 2001 Spyder home from its purchase location, I noticed that the clutch seems to engage and disengage almost at the top most travel position (clutch pedal is within 5% of the top of its travel). With other manual transmission cars, this has frequently meant: A) The clutch...

    Have 2003 MR2 with SMT. At about 201K miles, clutch started slipping occasionally. I figured clutch is worn out, since I inspected it at 123K miles and found it to be 2/3 worn. Took to MrT, asked for clutch replacement. They confirm clutch is worn out and replace it. Now they say after test...

  14. SMT
    Hi, Firstly it seems my symptoms are unique and I've searched all over the forums finding nothing close to my issue. Story Driving home I come to a corner and downshift into second to take it. There is a loud crunch of gears (doesn't sound catastrophic, sounds like a learner driver majorly...
  15. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Ok so I think I know the answer to my own question however, I'm hoping that someone else might tell me that I am wrong. I just finished my 2zz swap and before I put the engine in, I installed a new ACT clutch and fidanza flywheel. Well now when I try to start the car it clicks, but doesn't...

    Hello Everyone, My clutch has been slipping at high acceleration and up hill(90,000 miles) so I decided I would try and replace it myself.

My 2zz is from a 00 Celica, what will have to change now that my mr2 is DBW instead of throttle cable? 3rd. Should I still...
