What’s the Importance of Your 2016 FR-S’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 tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2016 Scion FR-S transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Scion FR-S transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your FR-S’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2016 Scion FR-S’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Scion? 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.
  • How much can my Scion tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your FR-S’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my FR-S's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Scion FR-S 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 Scion. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Scion FR-S? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Scion FR-S, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
  • Who does Scion FR-S transmission repair? If you have a problem with your transmission system, don’t hesitate to visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care. Our expert technicians can diagnose and repair FR-S transmission leaks and other issues. Schedule an appointment today!
  • Should I avoid driving my Scion FR-S if there is a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your FR-S to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
