Questions About 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Toyota? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Toyota? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • How often does my Land Cruiser transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Toyota Land Cruiser transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
