Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Toyota Celica 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 140K miles
My Celica started stalling in neutral this morning. It sounds terrible with a lot of sqeeking and grinding and it sounds like something is rubbing against a fan. When I do shift, first and second gear are rough and the car lurches forward. If I keep revving the engine with the clutch in at a stop I can sometimes keep it from stalling but not always. It sounds like the gears are grinding and the clutch petal shakes when I engage it. It also seems to be engaging late in the higher gears. Once on the highway it runs great.
The check engine light has always been on since the previous owner installed the cold air intake.
I was wondering what might be going on as well as the normal price range for these parts. I get taken advantage of quite often at repair shops.
have the same problem?
