whats a bonnet
Water can be entered into the radiator in a Toyota Celica by way of the radiator cap. It is no longer recommended to use plain water in a radiator. The proper fluid to use on most vehicles is antifreeze that is mixed at least to a 50/50 blend.
The proper transmission fluid for an automatic Celica is Toyota Type T-IV transmission fluid. DO NOT use Dexron or Mercon. The manual uses 75W-90 gear oil.
I have an 88 celica and my top motor takes power steering fluid
Same place you check it.
5 speeds dont need trany fluid. lloll
Should be a plug at the side of the transmission
repair the leak
1ZZ-FE engine: Up to 2.9L
You need a small funnel and pour it down the trannie dipstick pipe.
your choice if you wanted to but not needed,
It is probably Radiator fluid that's leaking. if you have red radiator fluid. it looks purple when it heats up. I had this from my Toyota Sequoia when the leak went over the hot engine.
this holds the cooling fluid for the radiator
Normally one entire bottle cat fill a radiator.
Watch P.S. level Place newspaper under vehicle
you dont put transmission fluid in a manual transmission. you need gear oil, and it should be done by a transmission shop
buy the universal fluid at your local automotive store.
If you suspect a fuse check ALL of them. It is probably the pump though.
Unless your radiator has a leak, the radiator fluid stays in the radiator.
drain fluid, then remove hoses and unscrew four screws.
if it is a automatic transmission you should change it every 15,000 miles, and if its a manual its recomeded at 30,000-45,000
There is no adjustment on the clutch, if it is not disengaging, it is probably the slave cylindar on the transmission. The fluid may be low also.
Flush it with BG product. They disconnect the transmission cooler lines from the transmission to the radiator and connect a BG machine that contains replacement fluid. Your car's transmission pump forces the old fluid out of the transmission and the torque converter and the BG machine replaces it with the new fluid. There are 2 fluids that BG uses to complete the process. First fluid is a cleaner and the 2nd fluid is a conditioner for the new transmission fluid. DO NOT just drain the transmission fluid, but do a flush.
Is the colour of the fluid green? or red, or does it smell? that's a definite sign that radiator coolant is finding its way onto your floor from the radiator, and if you let it continue and don't top up the radiator fluid inside the engine bay, your engine will overheat and die. Sounds to me like a heater radiator leak, don't drive the car until you are regularly checking the level of the fluid in the radiator and get it to a mechanic to swap that radiator out for a new one. and in addition get the mechanic to flush out the radiator fluid for new stuff.
On the left side of the engine compartment there is the reservoir for the power steering fluid. Make sure that you do not put steering fluid in the radiator reservoir.
