2012 Lincoln MKX Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 Lincoln MKX

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your MKX's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Lincoln, from back to front. It’s one of your MKX’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Lincoln MKX, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Lincoln's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Lincoln MKX 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2012 Lincoln MKX drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your MKX might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Lincoln MKX drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Lincoln MKX? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
