Hey not new to the site, was on way back when not new to forums either.

Need a little help I just bought a 2000 Celica with the 1zzfe motor. Everything seems to be ok with it. I had to replace power steering pump as it was making noise, someone put PS fluid in it.

I dont know how the car has been driven it only has 103K on it, I notice when I rev the car or stomp the gas to pass and make the car rev past about 4k rpm it will start smoking a little. If I rev it past 5k like trying to go as fast as I can get it in a straight away it smokes alot, smoke stinks and its not black like diesel but has a darker color to it Gray I guess?

Any help will be greatly appreciated I will do some searching around when I get back home.


Car does not smoke or smell different under normal driving conditions, smell and a very little amount of smoke at 4K lots of smoke at about 5k. Car has Old gas in it as it sat for a while before I bought it. Car doesnt have any knocks or ticks in the motor and it seems to pull strong.

How many miles have you put on the car since youve had it? What kind of mileage are you getting?

How does your oil look? If you havent yet, change your oil so its brand new and clean. Then keep an eye on the oil level.

7th Gen GTs (1zzfes period I think) have known oil consumption issues on higher mileage engines.

My guess, the o2 sensor(s) and/or cat are gone, causing the engine to dump too much fuel in the engine at WOT and you're just burning raw fuel in the cat. Does it smell like rotten eggs? If so that could be indicative of a burned up cat.

Change your oil and pcv valve, check your oil level at least once a week if its burning you might want to try a high mileage oil. Is the check engine light on?

toyota fixed the 1ZZ-FE burning oil issue in 03. where is it smoking from, is it coming out the tail pipe? and you really need to get that PS fluid out of the system. Toyota PS systems require AFT fluid ONLY!

There is nothing wrong with running pwr steering fluid in Toyota systems, they come from the factory filled with it.

Is your MIL on?

Does it smoke on decel or just on accel?
Start with an oil change [as already suggested].
It takes 4.4, not 3.9 quarts. It's going to be a little high on your dipstick but that's ok.

I have to agree.... I checked my BGB and it DOES say to use ATF Dextron II.

Every day I get up and go to work.

At a Toyota dealer. I see Toyotas every day, all day. I do Pre Delivery Inspections of the cars right from the factory.
They all have pwr steering fluid in the reserviors, not Dextron [Dextron III BTW, Dextron II isn't used anymore].
I know the caps say it, and there's nothing wrong with using it, but there's also nothing wrong with using pwr steering fluid.

Anything else?

Gotta say guys, if Jeremy (alltracman78) says power steering fluid is ok, then its ok. Hed know more than pretty much anybody else on this site.

I am going to ask the Toyota rep about this next time he comes around [don't know if I'll get anywhere with it though].
Toyota can be confusing sometimes; they'll say one thing one place and something else another.

I want to reiterate that there's nothing wrong with using Dextron, it's what I normally use in my cars.
But if all I have is pwr steering fluid I'd use that in a pinch too, we use either at work.

Probably mine. :hehe:

Talked to the Toyota FSA today.
He confirmed it's pwr steering fluid in the systems from the factory, but obviously you can also use Dextron.
