SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH MY GTS!
I have a major problem. Last night a couple of friends came over to my house and we were hanging out I decided to show one of my friends my celica because he hadn't seen my car before. The only thing is that my front bumper is with my new body kit getting repainted, so I had no front bumper on at the time. So we were driving down a road behind my house and I was hitting lift and I hit a bumb in the road and the plastic panel that is under the car covering the engine got snagged and was draging under the car. I slowed down and the scraping stoped. I immediatly drove back and took a look. My power steering wasn't working and my wheel had a hard time turning. Also you could clearly hear that something was wrong with the Intake it was struggling to suck in the air and when you started the car and left it it strugled then turned off. This is a major problem if anyone has any tips or info on what might be wrong then PLEASE PLEASE help me. I have no idea whats wrong with my car and i'm desparate to get this fixed. Thanks

yes, right after i hit the bump and the underbody plastic started scraping. That is when the check engine light and oil light came on. We pulled out a jack, but it wasn't working, so tonight, we couldn't take a good look under the car yet. My parents are out of town for one more day, so I'm trying to figure this out first.

I would go over all the hoses and make sure there connected properly. Check the power steering make sure its full. Check your brake fluids. Check the Coolant fluids. Check the Intake hoses. Check battery. The simple things. Check throttle. Check it all man.

Alright, well I'm gonna get my car towed to a mechanic monday. Yea, my friend thinks i must've dented the oil pan or something. One of them suggested the altenator belt, but i checkd it already and it was fine. Anyways, thanks for your input guys. When I find out what happened, i'll post it.

That is what I was going to say that you Dented the oil pan. Probably broke the oil pump itself too. Sorry to hear this!
