Questions About 1997 Mercury Tracer’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mercury's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Tracer is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Tracer transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1997 Tracer’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
