Lincoln Continental transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

1987 Lincoln Continental Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Continental’s towing capacity. 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. 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 Lincoln. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
