2007 Lincoln MKX Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2007 Lincoln MKX


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.

The foam seal between the dash and the windshield may slip out of place due to failed adhesive. Our technicians tell us the windshield must be removed in order to replace the foam seal.

Luv this car.

1986 Nissan pickup always garaged never out in winter since new- Orig 40K miles 2wd / 4cyl - did not come with AC - is there anyone in the Southern New England area that can install correctly ???? Tks

I started to hear a whine when accelerating. Shop just called telling me I have metal bits in the PTU and it should be replaced for $1500. I see the Edge (basically the same vehicle) has many reports of this. Of course my extended warranty just expired 3 months ago.

Black fluid leaks and after searching that I find all sorts of unhappy campers. WOW. Had this piece for a week and regretting it already. Who knows where the repairs end with this (Black fluid leak)I am so disappointed there was no mention of the problem in initial reviews.

My PTU Power Train Unit just went, leaking at 78K miles. By my experience and other reviews sounds like purchasing extended warranty is a must. Luckly I purchased extended 100K warranty so repair/replacement will be covered. Mine had a defective rim that makes at ticking noise on turns, had to replace it, not covered under warranty, $600 for the rim. Other than that it has been a very nice,...
