Questions About 2017 Lincoln MKX’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Lincoln's brakes? 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.
  • What can I tow in a Lincoln? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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? Maintaining your Lincoln MKX transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
