2001 Mercury Mountaineer Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercury's brakes? 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 my Mercury tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Mountaineer towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Mountaineer's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Mountaineer’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can my Mercury Mountaineer leak transmission fluid? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Mercury Mountaineer, 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.
