What Does Your Mercury Lynx Transmission Do?

Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Lynx’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1987 Mercury Lynx transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

Questions About 1987 Mercury Lynx’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercury? 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 Mercury Lynx? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Lynx towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Lynx transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Mercury Lynx transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mercury's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Mercury Lynx? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Mercury Lynx, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
