About Lincoln MKX

As Lincoln's answer to the Lexus RX, Lincoln MKX has been built by the Lincoln Motor Company, which is a division of the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company that sells luxury vehicles under the Lincoln brand, since 2006 as a mid-size luxury crossover Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced as a concept car at the 2004 North American International Auto Show as a successor to the Lincoln Aviator, MKX is the signal of Lincoln dropped the retro-obsessed past. As a rebadged variant of the Ford Edge, MKX now is in its second generation.
The first-generation Lincoln MKX was produced from 2006 to 2015 based on the Ford CD3 platform. It was offered in several special packages such as Monochrome, Midnight Limited and Limited editions. During this generation, Lincoln MKX was powered by a 3.5 L V6 rated at 265 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque from 2007 to 2010, which was replaced by the 3.7 L V6 cranking out 308 hp. Both engines sent power through a 6-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels or four wheels. Current MKX made its debut at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show as a concept car and was released at the 2015 North American Auto Show as a production model. It went on sale in the fall of 2015 as a 2016 model and came in three trim levels: Premiere, Select and Reserve. Now, MKX gets power from either a 3.7 L V6 rated at 303 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque or a 2.7 L V6 generating 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, the 6-speed automatic transmission gets retained as well.

According to the experienced MKX drivers, at the beginning, you may smell a burning oil odor, see leaking oil and coolant on the ground and hear squealing or rattling sounds coming from the engine; then the engine starts to perform worse due to overheating, it may stall or run rough and misfire, the vehicle may also lose power when acceleration and have bad gas mileage. MKX spark plug, intake manifold gasket, camshaft position sensor, valve cover gasket, timing belt tensioner, water pump, timing chain tensioner, serpentine belt, timing chain guide and piston ring set are often the culprits.
