Questions About 2014 Ford C-Max’s Transmission

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Ford tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a 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. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my C-Max's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Ford C-Max’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
