1985 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon Transmission Q&A

  • 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my E-250 Econoline Club Wagon's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 E-250 Econoline Club Wagon’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
