Question about 2011 Lincoln MKX

Open Question

Awd stopped working

My 2011 MKX keeps having the AWD stop working and then the car only goes 5 mph until it is stopped and restarted, it clears and then is fine for 5 to 10 miles and then does again, did it to me right when I went on the highway, very scary! I can't get into my dealership until Tuesday, any ideas on what is causing this?

That means the transmission is going into Limp mode - something's wrong that is making the car believe it can be damaged by the speeds the upper gears will allow you to reach. For starters, check the fluid level (or just change it - it's not a bad idea), and disconnect the battery for an hour or so to put the ECU into relearn mode - this will clear current fault codes and allow you a fresh start to see if the condition reappears, or if it was a fluke failure of some part that caused the car to repeatedly go into limp mode.

SOURCE: Oil pressure light comes on after driving on highway for 10 miles

Sounds like your sending unit sensor - if it was your pump going out, your engine would be history by now. Rule of thumb, if your oil check light ever comes on, it's usually too late to remedy the problem. You have a major issue, but since you've obviousely drove it quite a bit since then and it still hasn't seized up, I'm guessing you're ok...for now. Since you took it to a shop and they said you're ok, I'm assuming they checked your level and visually checked for leaks and found nothing. Either, you've got somethijng partially blocking your pick-up tube for the pump which is in your oil pan, or a electrical issue with the sensor. I would start by having someone check the sensor out and go from there...good luck.

SOURCE: ABS brake system comes on everytime I stop - no codes set

Test your wheel speed sensors. You can do it with a DVOM or a hand held lab scope. With a DVOM you want 2.8VAC while spinning the wheel and with a lab scope you want a good sine wave pattern.

SOURCE: AWD keeps shutting off

The AWD lock will only work up til approximately 7mph and then is programmed to turn off after that. It's primary purpose it to get you unstuck from a sitting position. You will see the AWD indicator light turn off once you're up to speed. If, however, while you're driving and your MO sense slippage, it will automatically engage AWD. You may not know it though as the AWD light does not turn on during that situation. If it does turn on, it is because it is warning you that there is a problem with your AWD, not that your AWD is working. So be happy that you don't see it lit while driving. The MO's AWD system is not meant to stay on permanantly as it is not designed strong enough for it. It's better than you don't use your AWD lock if not needed as it could later cause major failure with your transfer case. Repair costs....$6000 or more if you don't have a warranty.

How does the 4wd lock work on awd 2013 kia sportage


Its automatic. AWD is different than 4WD. AWD keeps all the wheels working independently. Where 4WD keeps all wheels working no matter what. No need to worry about anything on an AWD set up. Speed doesnt matter, however in my opinion stopping and letting it kick in or out is best. Just in case a part acts up it wont do anything odd at high speeds.

WHY DOES LINCOLN MKX MAKES ROARING SOUND BETWEEN 40-75 MPH


Things to check (in order of likelihood):
  1. Fluid level and condition in rear differential;
  2. Drive shaft center bearing;
  3. Rear outer bearings;
  4. Front bearings (have they been packed with grease in the past three years?);
  5. U-Joints
  6. Tires (separating tread, flat spots, etc.)

Back up camera suddenly stopped working


Since the newer vehicles have this system, my best answer to you is to go back to your dealer and have them fix it if under warranty. But it could be a simple fuse.

Can you flat tow a 2007 Lincoln MKX?


The 2007 Lincoln MKX is definitely towable "4 down". According to the owners manual: The ignition switch needs to be in the accessory position (position 2 of the 4 possible positions) so that the steering wheel is able to turn to let the front wheels track the towing vehicle. The transmission needs to be in "N" so that the engine's disconnected. The parking brake needs to be off, and the engine should be run for 5 minutes before starting out and "at fuel stops". This makes the vehicle a good vehicle to tow along with you behind your motorhome. The folks at Blue Ox make an excellent tow "baseplate" that is practically invisible yet hooks up easily to the motorhome. The BX2192 package is made specifically for the '07 to '10 MKX. It works beautifully with my '07!
