1999 Ford Contour Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Ford's brakes? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Ford? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Contour’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Contour's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Ford Contour’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
