1996 Lincoln Town Car Transmission Q&A

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Lincoln Town Car? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. 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 Town Car is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Town Car's transmission fluid need to be inspected? 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
