What Does Your Mercury Sable Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Mercury Sable transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Mercury Sable transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Sable isn’t working at all.

1986 Mercury Sable Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercury's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 Sable? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Sable's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 Sable’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
