Questions About 1989 Lincoln Continental’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Lincoln? 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Lincoln Continental? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Continental’s towing capacity. 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 Continental transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1989 Continental’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 Lincoln. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
