@has this ever happend to you?@
i was on my way to work this morning started my car up fine for the first time today and made it about one mile when my rpms got stuck 2000 and when i floored my gas my car moved slightly faster but not more than 2 mph faster so i pulled over and revved my engine and it went up while i was in nuetral like it was supposed to and then i turned my car off and thought i smelled maybe a sweet smell but not sure if it was coming from my car since i was by a creek thats pretty nasty i popped the Hood nothin seemed out of place checked my exhauset for anything stuck in it i found nothin so i turned her back on and drove fine for the next 3 miles to work-i am so confused what could this be my car is a 2002 gts automatic-thanks

It would be great if you used punctuation. Thank.

It's pretty confusing trying to read what you've typed... anyways, doesn't sound like any common problem among celicas. Is it due for a tune up? Your cars fairly new so maybe you should mention it to Toyota!
...and yeah, punctuation would be good! thumbsup

try this first MAF
if not clean your throttle body, if nothing works take it to the dealer

The way you described it sounded like the same thing that happened to me. For me it was a bad electronic throttle body(2003 DBW) Since your's is a 02, I don't think that's the case. I would try cleaning your MAF sensor.

well, it happend again for the second time today at the same spot. and this time i tried using my m-mode while it happend and m-mode wouldnt work. the only thing that fixed it this time was putting in neutral then back to drive. and then it was fine the rest of the way i think i am gonna make an appointment at the dealer to check my auto transmission
