Questions About 2012 Scion xB’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Scion? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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. Defying your xB towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your xB is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my xB transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Scion xB’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Scion xB? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Scion xB, 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.

  • Should I avoid driving my Scion xB if there is a transmission fluid leak? It’s not advisable to drive your xB if it’s leaking transmission fluid. Your transmission system needs transmission fluid to function properly, and a leak can lead to significant problems, such as overheating or reduced performance. You might even experience transmission failure.
