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 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.
The trunk lid may not latch closed, this is generally caused by the trunk latch sticking in the open position. Our technicians tell us that in most cases the trunk latch assembly will need to be replaced to correct this issue.
