  1. MR2 Spyder Main Forum
    Hello all! New to the forums but I have been looking for a while. I obtained a 2001 about two months ago and it currently has 78,000, just about to cross over into 79,000. I do DoorDash with it which might seem foolish to some but it pays pretty good and I make sure to keep up with maintenance...
  2. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I have a 2003 Spyder with 1ZZ and stock 5-spd MT. The shift action up and down the gears is smooth except for a sometimes-notchy 2-3 shift (the 3-2 downshift, on the other hand, is never notchy). This is the pattern I've observed: if circumstances (i.e. traffic, speed limit) allow me to...

  6. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Long time lurker, first time poster. My 2 is having shifting issues, the horizontal movement between the gear gates feels gummy/resists movement. Shifting up/down into gears is fine, but going between the neutral positions from 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, and 5th/R is difficult. Has anyone else ever...

    so I *JUST* installed a new shifter cable last week and have been driving for a week with no problems. - yaaay! - ...until today when I try to throw it in gear after having been on the road already for a few hours and I hear grinding and it won't budge. - booo! - I immediately turned the...
