Lincoln MKT Ecoboost ProblemsA/C Fan Speed Changing Constantly
The Lincoln MKT EcoBoost with optional automatic temperature control may have a problem with frequent fan speed changes when using the heater or air conditioner. Normally, the fan speed changes only to maintain a selected temperature, but when the fan speed changes frequently and needlessly, there is an issue with the fan speed control unit.
The fan speed control unit, sometimes erroneously called the blower motor resister, regulates the speed for the blower motor in order to maintain the temperature set by the driver. When it fails, the fan will run at random settings, and the climate control will be inaccurate.
Note: this does not affect the temperature of the air that comes from the vents, it affects the amount of air that comes from the vents.
The repair is simple, and quick. The control unit is located behind the glove box in most models, and removal and installation takes only minutes.
Also note: this only applies to vehicles with single or dual automatic climate control.
Lincoln MKT Ecoboost RecallsTurbocharger Oil Lines Leak Oil
The turbocharger oil supply lines may not be brazed properly, resulting in an engine oil leak. Dealers will inspect and if necessary replace the turbocharger oil supply tubes free of charge to resolve the concern.
A part within the fuel pump electric module may overheat, resulting in a loss of electrical power to the fuel pump. As a result, the engine may stall or fail to start. Dealers will inspect the fuel pump electric module part number and replace the module free of charge as necessary to resolve the concern.
Some vehicles were delivered without second row seats and no passenger front seat child restraint tether. This violates federal vehicle requirements. Dealers will inspect vehicles and install second row seating if it is missing free of charge to resolve the concern.
