They're often easy to notice. Toyota Celica transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Toyota Celica transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Celica’s not even driveable.

2001 Toyota Celica Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Toyota's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Toyota? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Celica’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Celica is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Celica's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Toyota Celica’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Toyota's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
