Questions About 1998 Toyota Camry’s Transmission

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Toyota Camry? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Camry’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Camry transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Toyota Camry transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
