95 toyota celica shift problem

Hi guys,

This is my first question here. I have a 95 Toyota Celica with a shifting
problem. I can shift into the various gears when the car is not running,
but cannot shift once the car is started. I can put it in any gear, start the
car and drive in that gear, but cannot shift. The clutch seems to work OK since
I can start off and keep the car running by depressing the clutch.

Does this sound like a transmission problem, or a clutch problem?
Any suggestions?

Thanks, Paul

Clutch, maybe even a throwout bearing. I'd say take it to a tranny shop that does clutches (Most do).

1999 Chevrolet Camaro SS (PC'd)
1994 Chevrolet Beretta Z26 Q4 (W41 M90'd)
2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 (4WD)

Check your engine and transmission mounts + control arm bushes.
