1986 Toyota Camry Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Toyota's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Toyota Camry? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Camry’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Camry is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Camry's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Toyota Camry’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 Toyota, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
