Lincoln MKX Problems
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.
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.
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.

Lincoln MKX Recalls
The body control module (BCM) may develop an internal electrical short. This may cause the BCM to overheat, which can lead to a vehicle fire. Dealers will inspect the BCM and replace it as necessary. This recall is expected to begin on March 7, 2011. The Ford recall number is 10S14.
Ford is recalling certain 2011 F-150, F-250, F-350, F-450, F550, Edge, and Lincoln MKX vehicles due to a possible internal electrical short in the throttle body control module. If an electrical short develops, overheating of the control module may occur, which could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect and replace the throttle body control module as necessary.
During assembly the electronic module settings were not configured correctly. As a result, the locking function of the rear liftgate will not work as designed. The liftgate may not lock using the interior lock switches or the remote buttons. Dealers will upgrade the software in the affected control modules as necessary to correct this concern.
