2011 Scion tC Transmission Q&A

  • 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your tC’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my tC's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2011 tC’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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 Scion. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can Scion tC transmission fluid leak? Yes, your Scion tC can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your tC ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
