2009 Mercury Mountaineer Transmission Q&A

  • 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.

Defying your Mountaineer towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

Regularly checking and exchanging your 2009 Mountaineer’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
