F*cked up my car today
Well I was with my friend on the way back from Kragen going through my school. I hit lift going under a bridge and on the way out I hit a speed bump in the middle of the corner and I caught some air, landed on some loose dirt from construction, and I lost control of the car. I almost hit the median in the middle but I managed to avoid that by counter steering. I swirved like two times and I hit the sidewalk, went over it and landed in the school parking lot. My front right tire poped on the side, the curb scratched the side of the rim a little bit(it's not bent) and some fluid was leaking from underneath the car...

The car seems to run fine...the CEL light isn't on and the engine heat level seems to be fine. The clear liquid seems to be comming from the middle of the bottom of the car, through a hole that was originally there in the metal...I'm not too sure what it could be. My friend thinks it's AC fluid or water...

I'm sure my alignment got f*cked up, I gotta get a new tire, but I'm really worried about what that clear liquid could be, and how much it might cost to fix. Any ideas? Thanks

Check your radiator fluid (although it usually isint clear) and also your tranny fluid. It's going to cost 7 million dollars to fix.

What do you mean you "hit lift"


You guys know nothing.

GTS has lift, it's like VTEC, it kicks in after a certain RPM range and gives your car a boost. VVTL-i, the L means lift, GT engine is VVT-i, thus, no lift.

I'm very familiar with how the VVTL-i works, I just was not familiar with its "lingo."

I Had my Celica 2 weeks and someone pulled out in front of me so I T-boned her... casued $8500 (Australian $'s) damage to my baby and she was of the road for 4 weeks getting fixed. All the chick who pulled out in front of me could say was "I'm glad I wasn't driving my new car" which was a piece o shit anyway... must be the time for Celica's and crashes... not good!

Then you should have been responsible with your car.

Clear fluid could be from your AC being on, or one of your coolant lines could have came loose or been torn.

If you were very familiar with the function then you would know what the abreviation stands for... Variable Valve Timing with Lift - Intelligence tongue

OK... anyways ignoring the whole vvtil durr post lift the car and check to see where the leaking fluid is from. more then likely its your radiator since its kinda easy to bust open. also take it to a alignment shop i wouldntbe surprised if theres some seriouse damage to one of the wheels.

Treat it better or you'll end up walking, its not rocket science.

Need photos to see what's damaged & how badly. Clear fluid could be power steering fluid. Usually its red, but the stuff I just put in my celi is clear.

Well, I feel horrible about it and I definitely will drive safer from now on... I'm gonna take pictures of the damage once my roommate brings back the garage door opener.

Dude you gotta pick your time and place to go for lift. Appreciate that these cars stick to the road and will take you right where YOU steer em... eek
