Questions About 1985 Mercury Topaz’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercury? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mercury Topaz? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Topaz’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Topaz is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Topaz transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Mercury Topaz’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Mercury Topaz? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Mercury Topaz, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.

  • Can I still drive my Mercury Topaz if it has a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Topaz to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
