What’s the Importance of Your 1998 LS400’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your LS400’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Lexus LS400 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Lexus LS400 transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your LS400 at all.

Questions About 1998 Lexus LS400’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Lexus? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Lexus? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's 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.
  • How often does my LS400 transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Lexus LS400’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
