Questions About 2001 Mercury Sable’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercury? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Mercury tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Sable 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.
  • How often does my Sable transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Mercury Sable’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
