2009 Lincoln MKS Problems
Various radio performance concerns may develop including noisy operation, no operation, or SYNC issues. Reprogramming the appropriate module with updated software will commonly correct most of these issues.
A grunting or grinding type noise may be noted from the front brakes. Our technicians tell us the problem is generally caused by the front brake caliper anchor brackets which can cause abnormal brake rotor and pad wear. The repair commonly involves replacing the brake pads and rotors and updating the caliper anchor brackets with revised parts.
A fluid leak may be noted from the axle area. Red fluid is from the transmission. Brown fluid is from the power transfer unit (PTU). Leaks are commonly from the axle seal and/or PTU cover seal. Leaking seals should be replaced as necessary.

Check engine light comes on all the time, then goes off. I've taken it to the dealership twice and they can't find anything wrong with it. 1st they said it was the car's computer. Seems to come on after I get gas or just for no apparent reason at all. Nice car, but it makes me leary of the quality with the light coming on and off.
