1986 Ford Bronco Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ford's brakes? 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Bronco’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Bronco is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Bronco's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Ford Bronco transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Ford, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
