In the scene where the T-1000 is torturing Sarah in order to make her call to John, the sound effect that is heard when the T-1000 delivers a left back-kick to the T-800 after being hit with the steel pole is a "sucking" sound rather than that of a hard impact.

John says, "Okay. Time out. Stop the bike." After that, he and the Terminator pull up into an alley and stop. After they stop, you can briefly see the reflection of the boom mic on the mudguard of the motorcycle's front wheel.

When Sarah is approaching Dr. Silberman after she breaks out of her cell, as the camera pans around the corner to show him, a boom is seen above the doorway to the cage area. (This depends on transfer, though, because of the adjustable framing; it's visible on the original DVD and Ultimate Edition DVD, but not on several widescreen laserdiscs. It may be visible in the 4:3 transfer, but that shot is cropped more than opened up and if it is visible it would be in the overscan area.)

Character error 

When Sarah breaks Dr. Silberman's hand, she tells him that there are 215 bones in the human body. The typical adult has only 206 bones.
Dogs bark wildly when a Terminator is near; yet, at Enrique's ranch, there are dogs playing despite the Terminator being close by.
Terminator explains to young John Connor that the T-1000 can mimic anything it touches. When it mimics the guard in the institution, the only thing it actually touches are the soles of the guard's shoes, as it was hiding as a section of the floor. Since Terminator was reprogrammed by John in the future, he was likely given partial or incorrect information on the extent of the T-1000's abilities by accident.

The T-800 breaks speech protocol at least once before John and Sarah switch his CPU over to LEARN mode. After the T-800 rescues John and they stop in the alley John asks the T-800 if he is a Terminator, to which he replies: "Yes, Cyberdyne Systems Model one-oh-one". This is incorrect speech as protocol would dictate that he respond to the question with: "Yes, Cyberdyne Systems Model one-zero-one".

Sarah tells Dr. Silberman that there are 215 bones in the human body. Newborns have around 270 bones, and many of these fuse together during aging, so there is some individual variation in the number of bones in an adult.

When Sarah is being chased by the attendants as she tries to escape from the hospital, she goes through a glass door that she locks behind her just as the attendants get to the door. As she runs to the next door, the camera dollies back and we can clearly see that the "cell door" has a deadbolt that can be unlocked with a key on either side. Sarah goes through the door, reaches through the bars, and breaks off the key. When the attendants get to the door, they say she "broke it off", but they could have simply reached around and unlocked the deadbolt from the other side.

When the Terminator takes the lever action shotgun away from the bar owner the cocking lever has an oblong opening that closely fits the Terminator's hand. Later, when the Terminator is shooting one-handed while riding the motorcycle the opening of the cocking lever is larger and more rounded, allowing him to twirl it around and cock it at the same time. However, when he and John pick Sarah from the mental hospital the cocking lever changes back to its original oblong shape.

Sarah shoots (and hits) the T1000 seven times with the shotgun. The T1000 shows five damage points, and only one of the missing two is explained by its morphing from Sarah's shape into the cop shape. The six shot placements after that morphing process are as follows: 1) chest (right side), 2) chest (center/left, 'heart'), 3) 'stomach', 4) right shoulder (hit point is only seen after next round), 5) right shoulder, high, 6) left shoulder. Possible explanation: First hit point already fully closes 'off screen' while Sarah is still shooting.

His right arm, which should be raised up to make the metal point, is not raised at all. When it cuts back to another close-up of the T-1000, his right arm is raised to make the metal point.

When Sarah is shooting at the T-1000 while the Terminator is backing up the police car, she initially fires 13 shots (more than her pistol can hold). In all subsequent shots during that sequence, she shoots only eight shots before she has to reload.

Errors in geography 

When John is fleeing up the canal, he is obviously going "upstream". He takes a narrowing, converging fork and the canal gets smaller. When T-800 jumps the bike into the canal, he does it from a point that would be dividing the rushing water rather than converging it, hence, they are now inexplicably going "downstream". A flood control system NEVER diverges the water, it only collects it into bigger and bigger canals toward a common destination.

When the T-1000 crashes the truck into the canal, there is a light pole in the background that has a sign reading reading "Plummer Ave", however, the concrete bridge has the name "Havenhurst Ave" written on it. This is not a goof because Hayvenhurst, the actual name from the movie, does intersect with Plummer. The signage is correct.

Factual errors 

When the Terminator uses the M79 "Thumper" Grenade Launcher to blast open a door at Cyberdine he is only standing about 10 ft away from the door and it explodes magnificently. This is impossible as the 40mm HE (High Explosive) rounds fired from this weapon do not arm themselves until they have traveled 30 meters (approx 90 feet). So the round would have simply dented the door or punched a 40mm size hole in it depending on the material the door was made of.

When Sarah is locking a laser target on Miles Dyson the spot stays steady. When the camera is on Sarah she is moving the gun. Even a slight deviation of an unsecured targeting site would shift the red spot greatly. In order for the spot to remain in one place the gun would have to be absolutely stationary, and if being held the shooter would have to be rock still.

Dyson has to go through what is supposed to be a "clean room" to get to the storage area for the chip and robotic arm. Clean rooms are not used as access routes. Nobody would be allowed to enter the room without proper gear, like the two workers are wearing. They are meant to protect either the workers from hazardous substances, or protect whatever they're working on from contamination. So "civilians" wouldn't be allowed to simply walk through.

When the T-1000 accesses the police computer at the beginning of the movie, we see that John Connor was born February 28, 1985 and is currently 10 years old. This would mean the film takes place in 1995. Later however, when the T-800 describes the events leading up to Judgment Day, he says Cyberdyne becomes the largest supplier of military computers in three years. That would be 1998, despite the date of Judgment Day given as August 29, 1997 in the same scene.

The detonator used at Cyberdine to blow up the labs had a black advanced looking electrical box with a claymore clacker (detonator) affixed on the top of it. The clacker has a black plug on the end that you have to open and connect your blasting caps or in this case the black box to by electrical wire. Throughout multiple shots you can clearly see that there are no wires attached to this and that the plug is also clearly closed.

John is able to determine the PIN of his stolen bank card after inserting it into the ATM, which does not work that way. The PIN is encoded on the bank card magnetic stripe and is not disclosed by the ATM itself; thus, John should have known the PIN to the stolen bank card before ever inserting it into the ATM, since he had a device to read the magnetic information.

With the destruction of the semi, the reaction to the spark is more gasoline in reaction (Spectacular explosion). However Diesel fuel, which fuels that semi, will only burn after being heated and needs to be compressed in order to be dangerously explosive. Diesel engines don't use spark plugs, they use glow plugs, so getting a spark on the fuel is impossible.

The following passage is excerpted from Wikipedia: Diesel fuel has low flammability, leading to a low risk of fire caused by fuel in a vehicle equipped with a diesel engine. Diesel fuel is less prone due to its lower vapor pressure, which is an indication of evaporation rate.

When the T-1000 and T-800 fight in the steel factory and the T-800's arm gets pushed into the giant cog, metallic silver paint can be seen on the glove from where the T-1000 pushed it, then when the camera pans away and then back to the arm the paint is gone.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When the T-1000 is in the helicopter chasing Sarah, John and T-800, he re-loads his gun. He uses both of his hands to re-load, and there is a third hand clearly visible controlling the joy stick for the helicopter. He simply grew an extra arm to fly the helicopter. In fact, he has four arms in the scene, all of which are clearly focused on in shot.
In the original movie we are told only living tissue or objects encased in living tissue can pass through the time portal, yet T-1000 is made of liquid metal. It is unknown how the T-1000 can travel back but it appears mimetic polli-alloy is an exception to the living tissue rule for time travel. Additionally, why does the T-100 take the shape of a naked man if he is completely metal anyway.

The T-1000 is not supposed to be able to turn itself into moving parts of any kind. But when it kills and replaces the hospital security guard, it has many moving parts before it takes the guard's gun - a keyring full of keys, a nametag with a clip, etc. However, these items are simply mimicked by the T-1000 and are not actually complex objects with moving parts.

In the steel mill, T-1000 asks Sarah to call John although he could easily shut her mouth and imitate Sarah's voice. however earlier in the movie the T-1000 attempted to impersonate Johns foster parents and John saw through the disguise, therefore the T-1000 would rather use the real thing than attempt an imperfect impersonation. It is also explained that in a deleted scene the T-1000's mimicking abilities were hindered by the nitrogen.

The T-1000 is liquid metal, and therefore has no need to breathe oxygen or exhale carbon dioxide, but its breath is clearly visible in the cold night air. However in first movie, Kyle Reese tells Sarah that the new terminators (T-101's) have "sweat, bad breath, everything." Since the T-1000 is a newer model to that of the T-101, it is plausible to say that it has "bad breath" too.

In The Terminator the Terminator comes through the time port and his hair is that of the "molding" of all Terminator's. But in T2 when the Terminator comes out of the time "bubble" his hair is the same as after the car wreck scene in the first movie when he puts on the glasses. John may have modified him to look more acceptable to Sarah. It is also possible that Skynet modifies each terminator before sending it into action so that, at least from a distance, they will look different from one another.

Immediately afterward, Todd is outside as John takes off on the bike, Todd has a partially smoked cigarette in his hand, which he throws on the ground. If you look closely at Todd's hand before he heads outside, he actually flicks ash from his cigarette into the ashtray with his thumb and stands up with the cigarette still in between his fingers.

Plot holes 

It is established in the film that the T-800 has to follow young John Conner's orders. So much so it will even break mission protocol and save Sarah, who it has been established is not a mission priority. However, the the end of the film young John orders the T-800 "not to go" several times, but the T-800 defies this order.

When Terminator lifts John Connor off the dirt bike during the canal chase, though it's only a 1.5-second shot, the T1000 in the background is actually a blue screen image, as evidenced by the difference in contrast and image sharpness between John and Terminator in the foreground, and T1000 and the truck in the background.

Character error 

At the end of the film they destroy the terminator arm, the chip and the T-800 in order to destroy all evidence they ever existed. However they forget to the remove the T-800's arm that was ripped off in the machine a few scenes earlier. Leaving that arm in the machine leaves evidence that they existed.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

After the truck explosion, the T-1000 is seen walking towards a police car, wearing a belt with the usual cop accouterments: gun, handcuffs, radio, etc. Not long after that, when the T-1000 morphs from Janelle into the cop, after killing Todd, a pistol can be seen on the cop's hip. In the very next scene the Terminator explains the nature of the T-1000 to John Connor: "It can't form complex machines. Guns and explosives have chemicals, moving parts." However, in the Extreme DVD written commentary (a few different times), it's mentioned that everything on the T-1000's belt is mimicked, and he has to keep stealing weapons and police radios.

Revealing mistakes 

When the Terminator shatters the T-1000 to pieces, the room appears to be full with gas nitrogen, while the floor looks like a pool of liquid nitrogen, which is spilling like cascades from the torn truck. However, after just a few seconds, in the whole place there's no trace of the gas any more, not even on the floor, as the T-1000 is able to "meld" back together.

Revealing mistakes 

When the T-101 is throwing the T-1000 into the wall at the construction zone near the end of the film the T-1000's hair is longer and ears are not as pointed suggesting the obvious use of a stunt double.
