1985 Mercury Marquis Questions & Answers

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mercury Marquis? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Marquis towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Marquis is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Marquis transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 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.
