Questions About 2005 Mercury Montego’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercury? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mercury tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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 Montego is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Montego's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2005 Montego’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. 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 Montego? Yes, your Mercury Montego can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Montego ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
  • Who can fix my  Mercury Montego transmission leak? If you have a problem with your transmission system, don’t hesitate to visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care. Our expert technicians can diagnose and repair Montego transmission leaks and other issues. Schedule an appointment today!
  • Can I still drive my Mercury Montego if it has a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak.
