View Full Version : Lift bolt after Misshift repair?
02-09-2004, 02:40 AM
Need a bit of help here guys? I had a missift about mid 2002 in my 2001 GTS. The dealer took apart a Matirx XRS to see what parts went where. Yeah, pathetic I know. The Matrix came out in 2003 right? So it would have had the new bolt. Well, the dealer showed me two bolts. One from the GTS and one from the Matrix. They said that was the problem. So was the Matrix lift bolt the correct bolt? And how necessary was the replacement of the other things mentioned in the TSB? Maybe some of you fairly new misshifters have had this problem already fix without knowing it.

Thanks for the reply. I have been out of the loop for awhile and this new info about the lift bolt is disturbing. First, the belt tensioner and not this. This new bolt isn't even a permanent fix. I traded a 2000 Tacoma for my 2001 GTS. I never had a bit of trouble with that truck. On the GTS I've replaced the headlights, hatchback shocks, and belt tensioner. I believe I will go back to a Tacoma when I get back from the Netherlands. If a Toyota at all.

I didn't think a broken lift bolt and a misshift were related. I would really like someone to explain how that happens. Anyway, the TSB describes a detailed procedure to REMOVE the broken unthreaded end of the lift bolt(s). If yours isn't broken then you only need a valve cover gasket, and o-ring for the vent pipe, and (2)new bolts to replace the worn but not broken bolts.
I switched mine out at about 35k. (I didn't bother replacing the valve gasket and o-ring) The bolts were just mildly worn. I have 55k now and will check before 60k. If they are not broken and/or badly worn I will replace them every 25k or so for the duration of my ownership. Usually, if you misshift in a Celica it will warp a valve and you will get the rough idles ect...
