2018 Lincoln MKZ Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • What can I tow in a Lincoln? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MKZ’s towing capacity. 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.
  • Does my MKZ's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Lincoln MKZ transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Lincoln's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
