2008 Lincoln MKX Problems

Fluid Leak From Axle Area

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.

Mkx leak from transfer case

I believe same problem as everyone else. But I think my transfer case or angle gear box has been repaired before. I have way too much stain under my car for the small leak I have. But only 600 to replace seals. Still runs great and quiet. So my guess is fix it with new seals before major problems.

Poor Fitment and/or Rattle Noise From Headliner

Poor fitment of the headliner, which may or may not develop into a rattle noise around the sunroof area is generally caused buy foam isolation blocks becoming detached from the headliner. The repair involves re-securing the foam blocks using cable (zip) ties.
