2003 Ford Crown Victoria Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ford's brakes? 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Crown Victoria towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • 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.
