#812 of 831 2011 lincoln mkx sporadic vibration noise
Aug 09, 2011 (8:14 am)
Bought 2011 Lincoln MKX in September 2011. Right off the dealership lot was bothered with a sporadic vibration when going up an incline and usually around the 1500-2000 rpm. Initially thought the problem was with the transmission but was told it wasn't. Had the vehicle into dealership couple of times to try and correct the problem. Today they finally discovered that the two exhaust pipes were they meet underneath sometimes were rubbing against each other and causing the noise. This intermittent noise has been bugging us since September 2010 and hopefully this is the end of it.
#814 of 831 Ac compressor?

I have a 07 mkx with only 43,000 miles...warranty of course just went out on may 8th....now my mkx is blowing hot air while in idle but cold air with any kind of gas....so just wondering if this is the compressor or maybe just a fan going out??? Any chance lincoln would cover this under "courtesy warranty"? GM did that for one once when I met one of the warranty criteria...in this case under 50K miles.

Worth a check as far as warranty. As to what's going on, it might be low on freon, or there might be an issue with the air direction doors resulting from a vacuum leak. I wouldn't think it's a fan problem if it's blowing hot air. If it is low on freon, they'll need to find the leak.

I hope its only a leak and not the compressor....was quoted at 1380 for new compressor..ouch

#819 of 831 MKX wood trim

I'm looking to buying a used MKX and am not fond of the dark wood trim. Does anyone know if this can be changed out? I was looking at trim kits but it doesn't look like they come with the factory trim that's already on the vehicle.

I have a 2009 Lincoln MKX; purchased brand new. Problem w/accelerating in stop and go traffic will not go. Push the accelerator, nothing happens, then all of a sudden car just launches forward. Ford mechanics cannot identify problem. Anybody experience this? Car been in shop 1 wk.

I have the exact same problem with my 2011 MKX. Dealer replaced part of muffler system but noise continues. Were you able to resolve your problem?
