Crashed Celica - Doesnt run the same
Hey everyone i have a bone stock 2000 gt celica, and we were in a crash, the car went out and straight into a tree! insurance covered it,and the body work looks great, but the engine is crap now. my friends have celicas, and mine doesnt sound anything like theres, mine rev's really high, and redlines quickly.

Does anyone know what could be wrong? or how i could get it checked out, cheaply??

Are these the only symptoms? That it revs high and quick? I would think thats a good thing. well, maybe. You have to explain a little bit more whats going on.

No car runs the same after it's been wrecked. Especially if it's hit a tree. Take it to a dealership and get it check out? Othe wise, sell it.

Hey I think what he is saying is that it revs fast, but he is getting no acceleration. This sounds like a slipping clutch to me.. but IDK. maybe after your accident your clutch wasnt readjusted, does there seem to be a lot of play in your clutch pedal? I would have the dealer check it out
