1988 Lincoln Mark VII Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • What can I tow in a Lincoln? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Mark VII is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Mark VII's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1988 Mark VII’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
