What Does Your Toyota Land Cruiser Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Toyota Land Cruiser transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Toyota Land Cruiser transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Land Cruiser isn’t working at all.

1996 Toyota Land Cruiser 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 Land Cruiser? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Land Cruiser is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Land Cruiser's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1996 Land Cruiser’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
