Questions About 1988 Toyota Camry’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Toyota Camry? 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. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • 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. 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 Toyota. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
