Questions About 1986 Lincoln Town Car’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Lincoln's brakes? 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. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Town Car is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Town Car transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 Town Car’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
