Lincoln Zephyr Problems
A squeak or creak noise may be noted when driving over bumps. Our technicians tell us of two possible causes. The lower control arm may have faulty welds or the strut jounce bumper could be rubbing on a dry strut plate. There is a factory repair kit for the lower control arms. If the noise is coming from the strut it may require dis-assembly to lubricate the jounce bumper.
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 ignition key may become stuck in the ignition lock, possibly associated with a binding shifter bezel. Our technicians tell us that if the shifter knob is sticking or the shifter bezel is binding the affected part should be replaced.
