Questions About 2016 Lincoln MKS’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.
  • What can I tow in a Lincoln? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MKS’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your MKS is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my MKS's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2016 MKS’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Lincoln, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
