1983 Mercury Zephyr Questions & Answers

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mercury Zephyr? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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 Zephyr is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Zephyr's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Mercury Zephyr transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Mercury Zephyr? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Mercury Zephyr, 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.
