You should probally first check into how much getting the worn out parts replaced would cost before throwing a whole new tranny in. It sounds like you have bad syncro's and or a bad shifter fork. Do a search on google for "toyota replacement parts" and you should come up with something. Also use the search button on this site to see if someone has made a previous post about the same problems you are having. Sorry to hear the bad news

go to a junkyard and get a tranny out of an matrix xrs or vibe gt if you have a gts.

If you have a celica gt get a tranny out of a regular matrix or a ponitac vibe.

I got me a tranny for 600 bucks out of an matrix xrs. it had 28,000 miles. good luck.

I knew about those two having our (GT-S) tranny's... although whats the year range that I can search for each Model?

I don't know the year but I got mine out of a 2003 matrix. I am guessing the matrix should be any year but not to sure about the vibe. I don't have any numbers for junkyards haven't been there in forever. I konw on the matrix tranny you have to a mod to get the shift cable or something so you have to drill and hole and move something but it's no big deal. Look into it a little more first. If you can get the tranny I can get you a decent price to install it.

that is bad advise!!!

the matrix and Vibe trannies have the selector shaft on the other side of the tranny housing. you WILL have to do some major modifications to the tranny to get it to work in the tranny.
