Why is Your 2012 tC’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. 2012 Scion tC transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Scion tC transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your tC at all.

2012 Scion tC Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • What can I tow in a Scion? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your tC towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my tC's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 tC’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Scion's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can Scion tC transmission fluid leak? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Scion tC, 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 tC transmission repair? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair tC transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Can I still drive my Scion tC if it has 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 tC to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
