1993 Ford Escort Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Ford? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 small. Defying your Escort towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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 Escort's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Ford Escort’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
