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. They're often easy to notice. Scion xB transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Scion xB transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your xB isn’t working at all.

2004 Scion xB Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • 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 weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my xB's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2004 xB’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Scion xB? Yes. Scion xB transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
  • Where can I get my  Scion xB transmission fixed? Look to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for xB transmission system diagnostics and repairs. Schedule an appointment online today.
  • Should I avoid driving my Scion xB if there is 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.
