What’s the Importance of Your 1986 Aerostar’s Transmission?

Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Ford Aerostar transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Ford Aerostar transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Aerostar’s not even driveable.

1986 Ford Aerostar Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Ford's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Ford? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Aerostar’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Aerostar's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Ford Aerostar transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Ford's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
