1990 Ford Bronco II Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Ford? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Ford tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Bronco II’s towing capacity. 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 Bronco II transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Ford Bronco II’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 Ford. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Ford Bronco II? Yes. Ford Bronco II transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.

You might even experience transmission failure.
