2012 Lincoln MKT Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 2012 Lincoln MKT Drivetrain Service

Your MKT drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your MKT’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Lincoln MKT, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Lincoln's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Lincoln MKT Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2012 Lincoln MKT drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Lincoln MKT may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Lincoln MKT.

How much does it cost to fix your 2012 Lincoln MKT drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
