2008 Lincoln MKZ ProblemsHarsh or Delayed Shifting of Automatic Transmission
The automatic transmission may develop shifting concerns. On lower mileage vehicles, upgrading the software in the powertrain control module (PCM) and the transmission control module (TCM) may correct the problem. As the mileage increases, internal transmission damage can occur. Repairs could involve replacement of the valve body or a complete transmission rebuild. Whenever major transmission repairs are made, it is important to be sure the PCM and the TCM have the latest software updates to help prevent these issues from reoccurring.
The ignition key may become stuck in the ignition lock, possibly associated with a binding shifter bezel. Our technicians tell us that if the shifter knob is sticking or the shifter bezel is binding the affected part should be replaced.
The power steering may leak fluid at the pump, hose, or steering gear. This can be caused by one or more hoses not being clamped tightly enough. The repair involves adding new clamps and seals to the power steering hoses at the pump and steering gear.
