1987 Ford E-250 Econoline Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ford's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Ford tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a 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-250 Econoline is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my E-250 Econoline's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1987 E-250 Econoline’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Ford, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
