What’s the Importance of Your 2008 tC’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Scion tC transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Scion tC transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your tC’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2008 Scion tC’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Scion's brakes? 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 I tow in a Scion tC? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your tC’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your tC is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my tC's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 tC’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Scion, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
