Why is Your 2008 Mountaineer’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Mountaineer’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Mercury Mountaineer transmission problems can present themselves as 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. If you ignore Mercury Mountaineer transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Mountaineer isn’t working at all.

2008 Mercury Mountaineer Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 Mountaineer? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Mountaineer’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Mountaineer transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Mercury Mountaineer 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
