Transmission Services for 1985 Ford EXP

What Does Your Ford EXP Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your EXP’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Ford EXP transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Ford EXP transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your EXP isn’t working at all.

1985 Ford EXP Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ford's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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. Defying your EXP 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.
  • How often does my EXP transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 EXP’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
