rpm blipping when i shift :(
I posted this problem on the other celica forum (*hint, initials of North Carolina) but I was wondering if someone here can help me out. I got my GTS like a 1 month ago approx.. anyways, it came w/ tons of problems.. non real serious but just Pain in the asses going to the dealership etc. One of them was a squeaking throttle bearing that makes noise all the time..at idle and what not, and only goes away when i push in the clutch.
anyways, the problem i need fixed is.. everytime i shift, the RPM blips up. When im accelerating.. Usually when im shifting really really slow and taking my time, it doesn't do that much, but when im accelerating, it just blips like crazy in all my shifts. I go 1-2 shift, and RIGHT when push in the clutch it blips up about 500 RPM and comes back down when the clutch engages at the friction point. I know it's not my driving cause .. first off, i took my foot off the acclerator OVER and OVEr to see if that was it, but even when im accelerating and i just PUSH in the clutch w/o giving it gas, it blips up. Second, I had the technician at Puente Hills drive it and he did the exact same thing cept when he found that out, he starts driving all slow and dumping the clutch to make it look like nothing's wrong and just said it was my driving. Any ideas? I'm gonna clean the MAF with some brake cleaner and the IAV with some cleaners too... but maybe it has something to do w/ the pressure plate, flywheel, clutch, or throwout bearing (tranny system)? Afterall, the technician DID say that the squealing was from the pressure plate being misaligned w/ the flywheel and it was making noise. Maybe this RPM blip is caused by that.
BTW, DO NOT go to Puente Hills Toyota. IF you hear my "screw over" story, you will want to burn the place down. I love my car and i got it from where, but if i had known the kind of service, sales (cheating), etc. that they offered, i would've found a different car, even if it had more mileage and no warranty.
I will post my Puente Hills Dealership story later when New/C.org is up and running cause i made a thread there... but long story short: Do not be fooled by their remodeling, w/ their Wi-fi and free computer access, big screen tv, and free coffee. If you want free coffee and wi-fi access, go to a Cafe. That dealership is unbelievable, so i filed an official complaint and im getting it dealt w/ Guest Relations and the District Manager. (Oh yeah, i have warranty for 1 month/2000 miles on the used car for ANYTHING i find wrong, and then after that i have the extended powertrain warranty, yet they refused to fix my problems. you know why? And i quote, "Too much work". That's the manager's reason. Both the sales manager and the service manager, even though the tech diagnosed the problem, the manager came out and flat out said, "You bought the used car, you knew what you were getting into. Used cars have problems, deal with it. I'm not gonna spend my time fixing your car cause it bothers you, plus you and i both know that you bought it at a great price. Have a nice day." and just walked away..)
I got carried away w/ the dealership part but someone help me w/ the RPM blip problem. Thanks
