Questions About 1998 Lincoln Continental’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Lincoln's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Continental 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.
