1998 Ford Crown Victoria Questions & Answers

  • 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.
  • What can I tow in a Ford? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Crown Victoria’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.

Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Ford's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
