What Does Your Mercury Topaz Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Topaz’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Mercury Topaz transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Mercury Topaz transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Topaz isn’t working at all.

1993 Mercury Topaz Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Topaz towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • When should I have my Topaz's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1993 Topaz’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Mercury Topaz? Yes. Mercury Topaz 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.
