Questions About 1997 Toyota Celica’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Toyota's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Toyota tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Celica towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Celica is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Celica's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1997 Celica’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Toyota's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
