2002 Toyota Land Cruiser Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Toyota? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Toyota Land Cruiser? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, 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.
  • How often does my Land Cruiser transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Toyota Land Cruiser’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
