What Does Your Toyota Pickup Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Toyota Pickup transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Toyota Pickup transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Pickup’s not even driveable.

1985 Toyota Pickup Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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 my Toyota tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Pickup towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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 Pickup transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Toyota Pickup’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
