1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Lincoln? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Lincoln tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Mark VIII 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.
  • When should I have my Mark VIII's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 Mark VIII’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.
