1997 Ford Expedition 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 I tow in a Ford Expedition? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Expedition 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 Expedition transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Ford Expedition’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
