Why is Your 2014 tC’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. 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, 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.

Questions About 2014 Scion tC’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Scion's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for 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. 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.
  • Does my tC's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2014 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can Scion tC transmission fluid leak? Yes. Scion tC transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.

  • Can I still drive my Scion tC if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving with a transmission fluid leak is not recommended. Transmission fluid is essential to the proper operation of the transmission system, and a leak can cause serious problems, including reduced performance, overheating, and potentially transmission failure.
