Transmission Issues or Something
I have a 03 Celica GTS with 47k miles on it. Everything was working fine until yesterday, I noticed that in the higher RPM's that it would Rev higher then it would normally faster and not give the power it usually does. Today driving up on the freeway 40 miles, it started were the higher gears 5th and 6th would Rev all the way to red line with giving little power. This slowly started going down to all gears. Now I can red line it with out getting hardly any power. I can get it up t 30 in first still, but it takes a long time and a lot of patience. What can I check that is simple? What can I do to make it better to get home? It has been raining a lot up here. Hit one puddle on the left side pretty bad(engine smoked a lot). Also, the left side if your looking directly at the front smells of burn rubber after running it for a while.
Thanks for your help
