Questions About 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon’s Transmission

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Ford tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my E-150 Econoline Club Wagon's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon 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.
