1991 Lexus LS400 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Lexus? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Lexus? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your LS400’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my LS400's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Lexus LS400 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Lexus. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
