1986 Lincoln Continental Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Lincoln's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Lincoln? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Continental towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Continental is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Continental's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Lincoln Continental transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Lincoln's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
