  2. Is My SMT Dead? 2003 Model

    SMT
    Hello, I'm brand new here - never posted before so I hope you'll tolerate my naivete and general lack of knowledge. I have a 2003 Spyder that I've owned for 12 years and have always loved this car. Over 80K of ownership (it has about 117K total), aside from standard maintenance I've only had to...
  3. Is this normal smt operation?

    SMT
    I’ve been moving my 03 SMT around, and noticed that it isn’t really smooth at all. It works ok, but the clutch operation is jerky and there is some judder during clutch engagement. Is this typical? This is my first SMT, so I don’t have anything exact to compare it to, but my 2015 VW with a...
  4. SMT/HPU Fluid check and fill.

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    There are several threads about this but I thought I would add what I have encountered. We got our MR2 from my father who has since passed away so I did not know when the SMT fluid was even looked at. In fact I did not even about the reservoir under the air filter until recently. I am in...
  5. 2002 SMT-5 Thinks it's in neutral?

    SMT
    Just bought an '02 MR2 Spider (today) that runs and shifts very smooth. The transmission light comes on and goes off randomly. So, as I am driving it home, I go through a series of traffic lights with no issues. Then about the 4th red light, when the light turns green, I step on the gas and...
  6. Help!? P0860, P1646, and P0915 on '03 6spd SMT?

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I have a Nov of 2003 6spd SMT and cannot figure out where to go from here? ORIGINAL PROBLEM: My 2003 6sp SMT would not shift into Neutral with the in-cabin shifter so I could start it. I waited for about 20 minutes and then tried again and she shifted into Neutral for me and started right up...
  7. The 02' SMT has an Error code P1128, do I have to replace the whole assembly?

    SMT
    Hello SMT owner: It seems like the new version of SpyderChat prohibit editing the main thread of each posts, and I am not sure why they move my original posting into "off-topic". It was a regular day and I can not start the vehicle. The battery and starter works fine, fuel pump is OK. The OBD...

  9. SMT Hydraulic Line alternatives?

    SMT
    The original lines are a PITA to remove, and the white plastic rings are likely degrading on everyone's cars. As the stock lines are not a common part (no manufactures are still making them), we will all need to find an alternative eventually or spend an obscene amount of money on stock parts...
  10. SMT alternate fluids like Cat Hydo 10?

    SMT
    Has anyone tried industrial or heavy vehicle hydraulic fluid alternatives to Toyota SMT or Dot4 break fluid? Since the SMT is a hydraulic system and many heavy machines use hydraulic fluid, then there must be a machine equivalent to Toyota's SMT fluid. Caterpillars use Advanced Hydo 10 which...

  12. 2004 SMT Paradise Blue - Shell

    Cars for Sale
    The car will still crank, but I don't think it should be driven. The engine was replaced about a year ago and is going again. Somehow it is running low on oil and causing engine damage. I don't know why, since the pre-cat was supposedly gutted. I just had some SMT work done and the car was...
  13. Rainstorm the end of the car?

    SMT
    Hi. This is a sad saga about an SMT transmission on my son's 2001 Spyder. All Spyder's delivered in Australia were SMT's. In a recent very heavy rainstorm the TCU (transmission computer conveniently located in a well behind the passengers seat) became submerged due to a roof leak. The ECU, which...
