INFO! WARANTY ITEM. MUST READ
According to the TOYOTA TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN,

"In some cases, owners of 2000-2002 model year celica gts vehicles equipped with the 2ZZ-GE engine may complain of an intermitten slight loss of power and/or variable lift function at engine speeds over 6,000 rpm under high load. This can be caused if the bolt securing the rocker shaft seperates, allowing the shaft to rotate in its bore. This rotation, when it occurs, can cause misalignment of the oil feed passages to the rocker shafts, resulting in a lack of variable lift operation and low power at higher engine rpm."

" Applicable vehicles 2000-2002 model year CELICA GTS equipped with 2ZZ-GE engine produced BEFORE the production change effective VIN# JTDDY3#T#20060197 "

Be aware! " This repair is covered under the toyota powertrain warranty. This warranty is in effect for 60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the vehicle's in-service date"

" WARRANTY APPLICABLE IS LIMITED TO CORRECTION OF A PROBLEM BASED UPON A CUSTOMER'S COMPLAINT." They will not let the customers aware of this unless you complain yourself angry.

I have posted and searched for help with this problem here in this forum before. I did not know until I complained to the dealer about this problem. Unfortunately my car has 80,000 miles and they will not cover my car cry. This post is to make everyone aware if they have a problem with their VVTL.

Let me know if you have any questions.
