hey y’all. so i already own an 01 gts that’s modified however someone on my street owns a gt that has a bunch of body panels i need. if i bought it tho i’d just swap panels and sell it for what i paid. however it doesn’t seem to run right. i’ve talked to him and heard it drive and it won’t go past 20 mph. i thought maybe limp mode or something like that but when he drives it it sounds almost like rod knock. however as soon as he stops the rod knock like sound goes away. anyone have any ideas why it would be doing this/if it’s an easy fix? i’ve done engine swaps and stuff of that sort but i’m more thinking price wise.

Could be lots of things. Need more information like any CEL's, aftermarket parts on the car. Information about the car, like transmission

no lights at all on it surprisingly it’s completely stock with new air filter. and it has an auto transmisión. the 4 speed.

If it only runs up to 20 MPH then likely engine has been damaged by overheating.

Main bearings may be bad and seize up, causing rods to knock.

it’s really odd as as soon as he stops driving it the car runs just like any normal celica would
