It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Ford Crown Victoria transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

2001 Ford Crown Victoria Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Crown Victoria’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Crown Victoria is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Crown Victoria's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Ford Crown Victoria transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
