A fixture on Canadian roads, here’s what you need to know about the transmissions in Ford vehicles
Ford cars, trucks, and SUVs have been a familiar sight on Canadian roads for decades. As one of the most reliable and popular line of vehicles traversing through our cities and on our highways, Canadian drivers know Ford produces quality vehicles.
However, Ford transmissions – like all automakers’ transmissions – can and do encounter issues or breakdowns occasionally. Canada’s extreme weather conditions and seasonal shifts can impact any transmission over time. So too can the driving you do. That’s puts on the onus on you to ensure your Ford’s transmission is in tip-top shape.
Maintaining Your Ford Transmission
Preventative maintenance is an important and straightforward way to extend the life of your Ford car’s or truck’s transmission. In your owner’s manual, Ford will recommend which transmission fluid you should be using, and how often you should have your transmission flushed and inspected.
Any unusual strain you subject your vehicle to when driving, such as towing a trailer or camper, or the constant stop-and-go type of driving common in cities, will in turn have an impact on your transmission.
