2013 Lincoln MKZ Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Lincoln's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Lincoln tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MKZ’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
