Questions About 1996 Ford Aerostar’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Ford? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Ford Aerostar? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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 Aerostar is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Aerostar's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Ford Aerostar transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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 Ford. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
