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. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Ford EXP transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds 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.

1986 Ford EXP Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Ford EXP? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your EXP towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my EXP transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 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.
  • Can my Ford EXP leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Ford EXP can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your EXP ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues.
