well im almost pulling a all nighter on the celica tonight. I just want to get the dirty work out of the way. My 2nd celica (Blue 1990 GTS as well) also suffered the same fate as my last celica and blew up the tranny. Turned out there was hardly any fluid in it. That will do it. Well it took me two and half hours to get the broken ass tranny out of there and another two hours to put the new one back in there. I just got a few things left to connect like the air hose and air box and some covers and some fresh gear oil for the tranny and should be ready to go. Ill get some picstures of my new celica when it gets out of the body shop. I have to repaint the hood and a headlight cover as the paint is peeling off.
