    Hi Smaay,

    I recently attempted my very first clutch replacement on my '02 GT (great tutorial by the way, super helpful).

    I installed everything and the trans is back in. But, I think I somehow made a stupid mistake, because before I remounted my slave cylinder, I decided to see if I could move my clutch fork and it moves side-to-side super easily by hand. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this would mean that the throw out bearing is not properly mating with the pressure plate, right?

    Just wanted confirmation before I take out my trans again...Also, wondering why this might've happened (aside from my inexperience). It seemed as though the throwout bearing clips were fairly straightforward when attaching to the fork...

    I appreciate your help.

    I think my ignorance is showing. After some reading about the fundamental operation of a clutch, I realized how dumb this question is. Anyways, I'll leave it here in case someone else has a panic attack like me.

    Hello Smayy,
    I am new to the forum and have seen a few of your videos on how to remove a celica motor. I have a quick question for you as i have not been able to find a definitive answer yet. I have a 2002 celica gt auto that i need to replace. My question is can i remove the motor while leaving the transmission in the car and not deal with removing axles as well? Thank you!

    Hey Smaay hope this message find you well
    I have a 2ZZ-GE engine that has had the no. 1 cylinder rod bearing spun and scored cylinders. I have pictures of each and every part and was wondering at what price point one might be able to list the entire engine on the different 2ZZ-GE forums including NewCelica.

    Hello, I'm new here. I want to know from a professional person who has done this before. So I have a 2000 Toyota Celica with a blown engine and I want to put a 2003 Pontiac Vibe engine into it. So like I said before I need a Professional output on this on someone who has done this before and knows from step to step what needs to be done or someone who has done this hundreds of thousands of times. What needs to be fabricated and replaced on the vibe engine for it to work inside the Celica and it to run like Gold. Also I'm not looking to do 2zz swaps anytime soon so I'm sticking with the same engine that's in the Celica, Vibe, Matrix, Corolla,MR2 and Elise which is the 1.8L. I need a professional who has done this so I can get this done and drive my baby again. If you have any answers can you please get back to me so I can have this done. Also it's stick and can the old engine be taken up from the top instead from the bottom? Need answers ASAP please, thank you.

    Yeah, it still have a misfire on cylinder 4. So I am at lost what is the problem. I took it to a mechanic and he said something wrong with valve. Is it possible you can check it out, I can pay for your time.

    thats pretty darn good. dont think you have a valve problem. so after changing everyhing, the misfire stays on 4?
