What’s the Importance of Your 2017 MKT’s Transmission?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your MKT’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2017 Lincoln MKT transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Lincoln MKT transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your MKT isn’t working at all.

2017 Lincoln MKT Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Lincoln tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your MKT 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 MKT's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2017 MKT’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Lincoln's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
