  2. OK. Good. Let us know if you get them working again.
  3. I hold you to that because that is where I found it and you are correct about the overheat and melt - 1 terminal totally burnt....ty

    Welcome to the forum and enjoy your MKZ.
  5. Thanks for the responses. I will update on the new heads. Hopefully good enough to keep car long term. other voices tell me car is jinxed, move on. Too nice though. Can't wait to reapply Livernois tune and go faster in quarter mile:) Hrlinc

    My name's Tyler. I own a ruby red 2013 Lincoln MKZ.
  8. Don't feel bad. I came to this forum because I knew it was lowkey and smaller traffic than your typical performance mode forum. I sorta dropped some talk at Fusion Sport forums but that was just to assist with my own interest to find the similarities and differences between the 2.7 and 3.0. I dont expect much hustle and bustle here, which is nice in a way compared to say...Mustang or F-150 forums. I'm not one to ask much help because I tend to undergo self discovery vs asking around. But I do enjoy learning. I HEAVILY lurk all kinds of forums, yet am really just absorbing any potential wisdom. Cars and Computers are two things I self educate myself before ever asking questions, as it's something I enjoy being my hobbies. I tend to hop to the front page and see what active topics are going on if the MKZ crosses my mind. Not always though, so then i may not see what's up for days or a week. After all I don't really have my ride anymore. I figure if someone is really interested in myself, they'll attempt to contact me. I try to never ignore those mistakenly who make efforts to outreach me (cause I know how much it sucks when you get blown off by someone or group). Anyways glad you are finally getting the new heads. It's nice to see them all shiny and what not!
  9. Hi HRLINC. We always appreciate fellow MKZ owners posting their information and experiences. Unfortunately, other than those interested in the particular subject of a thread or those interested in helping others solve a problem, most people read and don't reply. Then there are those who just do a drive-by. They come, post their problem, get replies and hopefully a solution, and just move on without ever even letting us know how their issue was resolved. Please keep posting, it is appreciated. And good luck with your MKZ when you get it back! 🙂
  10. Hi all, I have posted over the past year the various issues with my 3.0 turbo as has Zalvern. Right now my heads are being replaced at the local dealer. Should have it back this week. Also, have posted quarter mile times at various times. Neither has gotten much response. Thought these were both important subjects, one good one bad, but no few if any replies. I'll keep you posted whether interested or not. Good to have that knowledge base. Cheers, HRLINC

    Hybrid MPG

    i know that i put about 175 miles on my Z today. the wife was driving it over the weekend, and when i got in it was at 39.5mpg and i parked it at 40.3. i'd like to try fuelly or the like to get a second opinion... but i'm not sure i've got the discipline. i do have 7 flowers and a crap ton of leaves tho!

    Time keeps changing on clock

    i'll have to doublecheck that, i don't recall seeing that setting when i pored over all the settings initially. i am sync2, but the bluetooth support is lacking and i'm considering the sync3 swap.

    Left home in the Lincoln, and came back with three more.

    Two more recently completed '65's- both done as open limos for a historical sightseeing tour. They're part of an ongoing series of models I'm doing and both were made from cast-offs and spare parts.
  15. Hi etrain. In addition to the possibilities drolds1 mentioned, I just saw mention of a failed "TED" (Thermo Electric Device) causing failure of the heated and cooled function on the drivers seat of a Ford Fusion Sport (cousin to our cars) on a Ford Fusion Sport forum. In their case, the passenger seat was still working. The TED was replaced under warranty and it fixed the drivers seat issue. I realize both your front seats are not working, but it is another possibility to look into. Keep us updated and good luck.
  16. That's the module I was referring to above. Dual Climate Control Seat Module (DCSM). The connectors have been known to overheat and melt. FWIW; https://www.dropbox.com/s/l5m669xts3n8ci3/wi.pdf?dl=0 I believe it's under the passenger seat but don't hold me to that.

    Hybrid MPG

    Hi jm98. No harm in asking for fuel saving tips. However, you can never compare your own MPG's/mileage to anyone else. Fuel economy is impacted by driving style, driving environment (types of roads, traffic patterns, highway driving versus stop and go driving, fuel types, ambient temperatures, etc etc), and that is just for starters. So we will never be happy if we compare to others. So yes, ask for tips and try to maximize your own MPG's, but don't go by what others quote, as they are not driving where and how you do, and you are not driving where and how they do. Hope this makes sense. Good luck.

    Hybrid MPG

    maybe ethanol free gas?
  19. It is affecting both front seats and both heating and cooling. I must say that there is not a ton of information about these cars online. Glad I found something here
  20. I think there is a Climate Controlled Seat Module that controls the seats, located under the seat (I think). But first, I'd check the fuse(s), all wiring connections under the seat, and filter. And is this issue affecting one seat, or all?
  21. A regular scan tool won't show any codes for this. FORScan should have that capability. There are others here that are knowledgeable with with FORScan. Maybe they'll weigh in. If not, a dealer or well-equipped shop diagnostic with an IDS tool will be necessary.

    Recently picked up another original AMT annual '62, a convertible this time. It needs a total resto but I think I can do something with it.

    Hybrid MPG

    I have driven my 2017 MKZ Hybrid for 42,900 miles since purchase in August 2016 and have kept a log of each fill-up over that time. My overall calculated MPG is 42.7. I have summarized my data in monthly increments with the best month being 45.0 actual MPG and the lowest 39.9. Most of my driving has been rural commuting about 18 miles each way on streets/highways with mostly 45 MPH speed limits. I do not try any hypermiling and usually just set the adaptive cruise to the applicable speed limit and let the car/computer do the "driving". I have the climate control set to Auto all the time so don't worry about nursing a few more tenths by not running the AC.These commute trips I drive provide excellent mileage stats with the best single tank fill-up being logged at 47.2 MPG. On occasions when I have taken trips on interstates with 70-75 MPH speed the mileage drops significantly with the lowest single tank fill-up being logged at 34.7 MPG.

    LED tail lights burnt out

    thanks for that info

    Sensors

    Any ideas how low (or high) the sensors read? I.e., I'm very fearful of getting too close to the curb on the passenger side and having my wheel hit. Also, the front sensor. Same reason. Some curbs are higher than others and I scraped the bottom of the bumper on one of those high curbs.

    Time keeps changing on clock

    I am not sure of your model year, but I an MKC with Sync 2 and MKZ with Sync 3, both of them have the ability to synchronize the clock to the GPS time. Do you have that turned on in the clock settings?
