2011 Lincoln MKT Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Lincoln's brakes? 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 my Lincoln tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your MKT towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your MKT is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my MKT's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Lincoln MKT transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
