Lincoln MKX Repair and Maintenance

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

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.

Fuel Tank Seam Leaks Fuel

The fuel tank may corrode and develop a fuel leak at a seam weld under the tank mounting reinforcement brackets, due to exposure to corrosive road salt. Dealers will inspect the vehicles and either clean and treat the fuel tank with a corrosion preventative or replace the tank if necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Fuel Tank

Corrosion due to salt exposure on the fuel tank can lead to a fuel leak in affected vehicles. Near an ignition source, leaking fuel can catch fire and endanger passengers and property. Ford has not yet developed a remedy but will correct the issue when the remedy has been finalized.

Unexpected Loss of Power

In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention clip may not have been properly installed. As a result, without prior warning the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving. This would result in loss of engine power to the drive wheels. Dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage.

After several horrible experiences with the European vehicles I have owned, I decided to buy domestic again. My Lincoln MKX is the front wheel drive version. The good: refined clean crisp styling with a nice strong stance, the front grill is reminiscent of Lincoln's past, the ride is just firm enough and comfortable, it handles well, mileage is decent from the smooth energetic 3.5 V6, the soun...
