Questions About 1999 Mercury Mountaineer’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Mercury's brakes? 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Mountaineer’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Mountaineer is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Mountaineer's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1999 Mountaineer’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
