2003 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Ford? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Expedition’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Expedition is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Expedition transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2003 Expedition’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Ford. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
