It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1996 Ford Aspire transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

Questions About 1996 Ford Aspire’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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Ford tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Aspire’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Aspire is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Aspire's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Ford Aspire 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.
