1992 Mercury Capri Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercury's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mercury tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Capri transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Mercury Capri’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 Mercury, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can Mercury Capri transmission fluid leak? Yes, your Mercury Capri can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Capri ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues.
