2000 Ford Contour Transmission Service & Repairs

Why is Your 2000 Contour’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Ford Contour transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Ford Contour transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Contour’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2000 Ford Contour’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Contour towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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 Contour transmission fluid need to be checked? 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
