2001 Celica GT automatic. Bought it a little over a year ago. The speedometer and odometer would work sometimes and not others. At the same time the engine light would come on and the car, (automatic) would not shift into fourth gear. All these things would happen together. Sometimes everything would work…the meters would start working, the engine light would go off, and the car would shift into fourth. After a period off sometimes working and sometimes not, it stopped working permanently. So, the car has non working speed and odometer, the engine light stays on, and the car will not shift to fourth gear, (other three gears are fine).
I've replaced the speed sensor. My mechanic doesn't know what it is. He mentioned something about a "scope" that the dealer would have to trouble shoot the problem. The dealer told me the problem was due to the fourth gear being worn and I'd need a new transmission. I'm not buying that diagnosis. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
have the same problem?
