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.
A coolant leak may develop from the heater core. The failure may be due to electrolysis. Our technicians recommend to check for voltage in the coolant with the battery disconnected. If voltage is found the cooling system should be flushed and jumper wires added to engine ground straps as necessary.

Lincoln MKZ Reviews
Purchased vehicle new and now have almost 40k miles. Had to replace brake pads and service rotors at 25k; replaced two batteries, and tires at 32K (I replace earlier than most people I think). Have really enjoyed the ride and luxury of the Lincoln. The engine is strong enough for me and am not into handling as much as smooth cruising.
Going on 4 years and the car still runs exceptionally well. I have had no problems with it.
