Questions About 1997 Mercury Mystique’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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.
  • What can I tow in a Mercury? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Mystique towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Mystique's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mercury Mystique transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can Mercury Mystique transmission fluid leak? Yes. Mercury Mystique transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
