What Does Your Mercury Tracer Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed.

They're often easy to notice. 1999 Mercury Tracer transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Mercury Tracer transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Tracer isn’t working at all.

1999 Mercury Tracer Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mercury? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your Tracer 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.
  • Does my Tracer's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Mercury Tracer’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can Mercury Tracer transmission fluid leak? Yes. Mercury Tracer transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.

A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
