  1. SMT
    Due to doing a transmission swap, on a 2003 SMT, and finding out that I couldn't connect my OBDII to the ECU meaning that I couldn't perform a new parts relearn I got a new 'to me' ECU and TCU. When I got everything hooked up and started my car, it is now running extremely rough and to stop it...

    I recently got a new ECU and TCU (I have a 2003-4 PFL SMT). My previous ECU is somewhat fried, I can not connect any sort of OBDII cable to it, and it is no longer able to manage the engine control. When I start the engine it will run extremely rough for a few seconds, and then it will stop. The...

    Greetings all! Actually just joined to ask this in hopes for some more effective assistance pinpointing some SMT issues. Have been sifting through threads for the past few days now and haven't found a situation exactly similar. Bits and pieces in common yes, but nothing that fully allows me a...

    My freind is looking for a mr2. Iv never driven an smt but there is a mint one with an smt for 6500. Is the smt slower shifting than the manual? What are the downsides to the smt?
  5. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hey Spyder Family, I'm having an interesting combination of issues and while I do some troubleshooting I figured I'd poll the community to see if anyone has some insight. Didn't place in the SMT section as I think it's a broader electrical issue, but will tag as SMT so this is searchable...
  6. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has seen this issue before. I bought an '02 SMT about a month ago and knew it had transmission issues from the start. At first it had some issues shifting into reverse or first gear, but it would go in if I cycled from neutral to reverse a couple of times. It...

    I’m planning on using this Bosch brake fluid to flush my brakes. Will it also be ok for the SMT? I believe so but I just want reassurance. https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=11727065

  8. SMT
    Hi all, having a bit of trouble (expected) with my SMT Spyder. It all started a couple of days ago with the car suddenly stalling at a red light trying to take off in first suddenly. Limped home by revving and engaging first which was a bit jittery but got the car home. Tried the battery...

    Hi all, this is my first post here as a new owner of an '02 SMT Spyder. Luckily it looks like I haven't had any major issues with the SMT, however I'm getting a nasty whine in 1-3 gears. I think one of the transmission bearings is shot and there's grinding from 1-2 and 4-5. Rather than...

    I have an 03 5speed SMT Spyder that when I shift into fourth, the gear doesn't engage. This has been a problem since I bought it. Everyone that has driven it reckons that the syncro has gone. I currently have the gearbox out of the car, which is a C60 as opposed to the C56 that the vin plate...
  11. SMT
    2004-dash says S1, but revs freely like in neutral and won’t go. Additionally, R light comes on, can hear it engage the gear, car won’t roll but still revs and won’t go like it is in neutral. I want to keep it an SMT, any thoughts?
  12. SMT
    I have a 2004 with 60 K miles and SMT. I had postponed changing the SMT fluid since it was a slight pain, and needed to clean out garage for some working space. First there were no issues with the SMT before starting the fluid change over. No leaks no issues with the function of the SMT I read...

    Hi I have a 2003 SMT. The car is not starting. When I turn the key nothing happens. The clock does dim when I turn the key. Headlights remain bright. I do not see any gear indicator light illuminated. I do hear the pump run and shut off. The fuses in the engine compartment look ok. The car sits...

    Hi I have a 2003 smt. I don't drive the car that much, last time was a month ago. I get in, open the door hear the pump charge. Turn the key nothing. No gear indicator light displayed. Looked at fuses, nothing. I am not sure if I can even get the car towed as it still may me in gear. Headlights...

    Hi, My son had a problem with his MR2 Spyder. It was not going into gear and doing some strange things (he did not elborate too much!). Its a 2001 model RHD, SMT, 1ZZ-FE. Anyway, took a look at it and found the Neutral Safety Switch was faulty along with the Reverse Gear Switch. Replaced these...
