1986 Toyota Van Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Toyota's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 Van? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Van 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.
  • Does my Van's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Toyota Van’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.
