Questions About 2008 Lincoln MKX’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Lincoln? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your MKX towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your MKX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my MKX's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Lincoln MKX’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
