2018 Lincoln MKT 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. 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 it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MKT’s towing capacity. 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? Caring for your Lincoln MKT’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
