Questions About 2008 Ford E-150’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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Ford E-150? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your E-150 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your E-150 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my E-150's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 E-150’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
