Do I also need to replace my transmission?

Asked by Mar 13, 2014 at 06:45 PM about the 2013 Ford Fiesta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently blew the engine in my 2013 Ford Fiesta because I towed it behind my
motorhome for a short distance at highway speed and forgot to put it in neutral.  I pulled it  
for about 4 miles at 65 mph in first gear.

If the motor was cooked I'd say the trans is too. Probably overheated. Have your mechanic or transmission shop to confirm.

Didn't you notice that it was a terrific drag on your motor home, you must have a really powerful rig.

Yeah, maybe you did notice the difference but only after you got up to highway speed? Too bad that you didn't notice that just pulling away for a few hundred feet.
