2011 Lincoln MKZ Transmission Service & Repairs

What Does Your Lincoln MKZ Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your MKZ’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Lincoln MKZ transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Lincoln MKZ transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your MKZ’s not even driveable.

2011 Lincoln MKZ Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Lincoln's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Lincoln tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your MKZ is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my MKZ transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Lincoln MKZ’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Lincoln, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
