2000 GTS cluch or transmission
Hi i just bought an 00 GTS last week and i am loving it but earlier today the clutch of tranny acted up not alowing me to shift into first and a lot of grinding in reverse. after a couple of hours parked i tried it again and it is smooth. Does anyone have any idea what it could be. Thanks

my guess is synchros...mine did the same thing and eventually got worse and worse...now im paying for a new tranny and clutch...

if I was you id take it to a tranny shop and have them test drive it to see if it may be the synchros, and then if so, get it fixed when its 900 bucks to fix instead of 3500...

just my experience

Is the synchros covered under extended warranty?

Hmmm...hey Rookie, have you gone to Toyota with this problem? I know that you still have your warranty intact right?

I am going to try and give them a call.

Where did you buy it from? if you got it from a dealer you probably have a limited warranty. sounds like synchros, get the synchros fixed and buy a clutch.

Nice. Hopefully they can fix my synchros and then I can pay for a new TRD clutch or something.
