1983 Lincoln Town Car Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Lincoln Town Car? 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 Town Car’s towing capacity. 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 Town Car's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Lincoln Town Car’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
