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.

2007 Lincoln MKX 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, reliable ride. We got the DVD system which our kids love. Overall, I love my MKX.
PTU Power Train Unit needs to be replaced on my Lincoln MKX at 68500 miles. Its covered under the warranty until 70k, thank god because it's super expensive to replace. It seems to be a popular problem with Ford and Lincoln. The part is on back order for a month and they told me that I can't drive it!! Overall it has been a good vehicle. Not too bad on gas for an SUV, comfortable and handles nicely. I think its best to keep it for a few years and sell after the warranty runs out!
