1996 Mercury Grand Marquis Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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 I tow in a Mercury Grand Marquis? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Grand Marquis’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Grand Marquis's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1996 Grand Marquis’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 Mercury. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Mercury Grand Marquis? Yes. Mercury Grand Marquis transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.

  • Should I avoid driving my Mercury Grand Marquis if there is a transmission fluid leak? Driving your Grand Marquis with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
