  2. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hey guys, I’ve spent the past few days reading through a lot of these forums for research on a possible engine swap, but I’m not sure if that’s what needs to be done. My 2001 MR2 that I bought 3 weeks ago, from a dealer, showed the oil light on the interstate a few days ago, before totally...
  3. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hello all, As I turned on my 2001 mr2 with 42k miles I was greeted with a check engine light. Using a scanner there was 4 codes: (P0300,P0301,P0100,P0110) P0300- Random Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected P0301- Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected P0100- Mass or Volume AirFlow Circuit P0110- Intake...
  4. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hey all. I somewhat not recently at all, purchased a 2000 MRS of which the AC does not work. The compressor turns on (i hear it and the engine rpms lightly dip), ac blows (but not cold). Is it likely just a refrig leak? How often do the compressors fail on these baby engines? Should I just...

  6. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    New to S/C. I recently bought a 2000 Spyder 5spd. Drove it for a week and the head gasket went out. I decided to take a stab at the 2zz swap. I finished up the swap and still trying to work out some kinks. But one thing that has me stumped is the tachometer not registering the rpm's. There are...
  7. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hey everyone, I'm new here but have been rebuilding an absolute wreck of a Spyder I bought from my cousin a few months ago (he successfully 2zz swapped it, drove it around for a few months and it overheated. needed head work which was done and then the car just sat). I have gotten to the point...
  8. Appearance Modifications
    Hey guys I’m definitely confused here. I did a new 1zz to 2zz swap. While I was doing the swap I went ahead and did basic bolt on modifications (PPE HEADERS w/NO CAT MID PIPE, INTAKE, CATBACK EXHAUST, 2 UNDER DRIVE PULLEYS). When I start the MRS with the 2zz ECU idles for 30 sec and dies. But...
  9. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I’ve got a situation that’s arisen that I’m scratching my head about. My usual commute is short – about 15 minutes. Normally I’ve got the stereo on, but in the morning, it’s not on loud. I usually hear most of the sounds my car is making. A radiator fan isn’t one of them. In the last 2 days...
  10. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hi All: I've recently started hearing some engine noise and I'm trying to work out what it could be. Could be something simple, but I'm more of a computer guy than a car guy, so any help is appreciated! I took it to a friends shop (it needed the drive belt replacing and an oil change anyway)...
  11. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    When I swapped my engine for a 2ZZ, I seized the opportunity to also upgrade my transmission to a 6-speed C60 with a TRD helical LSD. While the car is driveable and all gears are useable, I have some difficulties shifting that I need to go away. The symptoms are this: 1st gear: hard to get...
  12. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Okay - so today me and my girlfriend loaded up in our 2003 Mr2 Sypder and headed towards Oklahoma... We didn't make it very far before our beloved Spyder died while going 70 mph down the highway... Here's what it is doing: If I turn the key - it cranks - but it doesn't start (kinda like it's...
  13. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    my engine wont start... bad ecu? I have an 02 smt spyder. About a week ago my top was slashed to ribbons, so I bought a nice cloth top and put it on (over the course of about 3 days off and on). After getting everything done I went to start my car only to find the battery was dead. So I charged...
  14. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Wondering if I can solicit some suggestions on a frustrating problem that I haven't quite seen posted here before. I'm the original owner of a 2000 Spyder with 160k miles; engine was replaced at 145k miles with a rebuilt 1ZZ. Starting at about 150k, the coil on cylinder 1 has been failing...
  15. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    My spyder runs like a champ but a couple little things are spoiling my ride. My rear defrost doesn't work, the buttons little light goes on but the window doesn't defrost, also I get this terrible clack sound from my driver rear tire area. It only happens on uneven roads, it doesn't make the...
  16. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    iphone video more of a sound clip than video. 1st one is the squeaking close to the right side of the engine. Others have commented loose pulley, belt wear, etc. It is intermittent at idle. That is the only time I can hear it, maybe because it is not drowned out by exhaust note. 2nd is...
  17. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    There is a nice write up in the library about ABS troubleshooting. Coincidentally, I have a recent onset, intermittent ABS light issue I'm trying to troubleshoot. Unfortunately the images for the library are no longer visible. It looks like they would be very helpful. Does any have, or know...
