Hello from TN
Gustafa posted a topic in Welcome Forum!Been lurking and getting advice from this forum since I purchased a used 2011 Lincoln MKX back in November. Really like the car, but due to its age, it has its quirks and this forum has been fantastic. Thanks for having me. I hope I can contribute as time goes by!
2008 Lincoln MKX AWD Issues (Transmission and Hub?)
tolukosi posted a topic in 2008 Edge & MKXHello All, I just got a 2008 Lincoln MKX AWD from a dealer last month (At 200k KMs I expect it to have some minor issues) and then I noticed some things, which I surely need help with. When I lift the tailgate, the gives a loud thud noise whenever it gets to the top. When reversing, I have noticed like five times now that the car goes into neutral and It won't move at all... I will have to put it into Drive, move forward a bit and put it back in reverse before it works... This morning, it happed twice before leaving the garage. Whenever I make a turn to either side (at a junction or stop sign), I would hear a cranking noise (which increases as i try to force increase speed - probably from the tires) and to reduce the noise, I had to release the pedal and at times, I would have to park for like 3 seconds before continuing. I am wondering if it is the hub that is causing this or something else. Any input would be highly appreciated. Regards

Power Liftgate Won't Open Automatically
metatr0n posted a topic in 2008 Edge & MKXWe've got a mint 2008 MKX AWD w/ ~82k on the odometer. We love the car, save for one minor issue: The Power Liftgate rarely, if ever, opens (or closes) automatically. I have tried the various reset methods mentioned in other threads to no avail. If it helps, I can post a video later, but here's what happens in the two possible scenarios: Liftgate closed: pushing the key fob button twice or the button below the instrument panel causes the lock to actuate but the Liftgate never opens automatically. There is the familiar *ding* *ding* *ding* sound that appears to be emitted from the rear of the vehicle. When I grab the Liftgate handle, press the button on the underside and lift the gate, there is considerable resistance and it doesn't seem to want to "pop" open. There are no noises that would make me think the actuator assembly is binding, it's just hard to pull open. Liftgate opened: pushing the key fob button twice or the button below the instrument panel causes the lock to actuate but the Liftgate never closes automatically. There is the familiar *ding* *ding* *ding* sound that appears to be emitted from the rear of the vehicle. When I attempt to close the Liftgate manually, the resistance "feels" normal and is fairly easy to close. To put it simply... I push a button to open or close the Liftgate The lock on the Liftgate actuates I hear a series of *ding* sounds (I believe 3 or 4) The Liftgate doesn't move at all I suspect (hopefully) that the struts are just trashed and should be replaced. What complicates the problem is that 2 out of 5 times, the door will open and close just fine, and sadly I never remember to make note of the conditions during the times that it does work. If it were truly the struts, I would expect them to perform poorly in extremely hot or cold temperatures (it's 100 every day here in Austin at the time of this post). Any other ideas? As I've said, I tried the various Liftgate reset procedures with no improvement. The car is obviously out of warranty and I'm hopeful that the motor/actuator that powers the Liftgate isn't toast. Thanks in advance!
