    17" Wheels on 2019 MKZ 3.0T AWD?

    Hi benne. Oooops...typo! Yes, "fender" interference, as fusionff stated. Thanks fusionff! I went back and corrected the typo. Good luck.

    17" Wheels on 2019 MKZ 3.0T AWD?

    Im pretty sure he meant 'Fender Ineterference', meaning don't get a large tire where it will rub the fender, or quarter panel. Also too low of a wheel offset can push out the tire and could cause some rubbing issue on the quarter panel.

    17" Wheels on 2019 MKZ 3.0T AWD?

    Thanks for the reply! Could you please elaborate on "feeder" interference? I'm not familiar with that term! Usually work on older vw/audis

    17" Wheels on 2019 MKZ 3.0T AWD?

    Hi benne and welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum. You can go to an 18" wheel, if you wish, but a 17" wheel is too small to avoid brake/suspension interference. And whatever you do, you will want to keep as close to the factory/stock overall wheel/tire diameter as possible. This will keep your speedometer/odometer accurate and help avoid any suspension/fender interference. See here: https://www.tirerack.com/wheels/results.jsp?autoMake=Lincoln&autoModel=MKZ+3.0T+AWD&autoYear=2019&autoModClar=&package=false Hopefully the link above will work without needing "cookies". If not, just perform another search for wheels for a 2019 MKZ 3.0T AWD. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  6. Hey all, just purchased a 2019 MKZ 3.0T AWD with 30k miles. The car came with the 19" wheels with the 245/40/19 size tires. I live in Minnesota and the car has Goodyear Eagle Touring tires which are working OK in the snow and ice storms we are getting. I'm contemplating purchasing snow tires, which will stay soft as the temperatures drop towards 0 degrees and below. I am curious if anyone has put 17" wheels on the MKZ 3.0T? Are there brake clearance issues? The obvious reason going 17" is the cost of wheels and tires are drastically cheaper, and the ride quality is more comfortable with the larger sidewall. Are there any tire diameter specs that need to be within a certain measured range to not cause damage to the AWD system? The Tire Diameter of 245/40/19 is 26.7 inches. It would be nice to free up some space between the edge of the tire and the fender/wheel well as snow and ice can build up and rub/obstruct the tire when turning. It looks like 225/55/17 also has a tire diameter of 26.7" 225/55/17 = 26.7" diameter / 0 radius change 235/45/17 = 25.3" diameter / 0.7" radius change 225/45/17 = 25" diameter / 0.85" radius change 235/50/17 = 26.3" diameter / 0.2" radius change I looked in the manual and couldn't locate any information regarding these requirements.
  7. Hi djc. A very nice write-up which will certainly help others. Thanks for taking the time, and good luck. 🍻
  8. I did some searching and found this topic well-covered on the web but not so much here for this group. I bought my car a few weeks ago and discovered, like many of you, that the Lincoln Way app was useless for me thanks to the 3G modem that came from the factory when my car was new. So, I found and installed this particular 4G modem on eBay for $75 shipped. PART NO: JL3T - 14G087 - CK I read and understood that any of the -C_ part # suffixes should work. Mine is a -CK but others are out there for sale right now. The key is to stick with the older JL3T parts rather than the very latest ones - at least for my 2017 car! This is a possible way to swap in a 4G modem for your existing 3G modem that should work for you. Pull up the left (driver’s) side panel in your trunk to start. In the photos you see that I moved the single power and CANBUS plug over and then moved my single FAKRA antenna plug over. You see two FAKRA jacks in the photo. However, only one of them will accept your existing antenna plug. Seeing the word “GPS” on the old 3G part I have a feeling that the 3G modems need a GPS antenna FAKRA jack because they also incorporate the GPS function that your car uses to provide the compass in the dash display. Nerdy Detail Alert - I think for our cars with Navigation there is indeed another (blue?) GPS antenna plug that goes into a jack on your APIM - the silver box that you’ll find secured to the center dash bezel right behind your 8” screen. Anyway, I plugged a Bingfu 4G Wi-Fi antenna (cheap, on Amazon) into the other jack - see photo - and then did my Forscan work, as noted below. First, delete your existing car profile in Forscan and let it find your car again when you connect. This makes it build a new profile that includes your replacement 4G modem. You should see a TCU included in your module list once the car finishes connecting. Now let it save this new profile for you by clicking “yes” when it asks. Under “Service Prodedures”, do a forced reset of the “new” 4g TCU. Read and clear any codes that may remain in the TCU afterwards. See my photos. You’ll end up with one code for “Antenna 2” that will not clear. No worry, that’s harmless and it’s there because you used the Bingfu antenna instead of paying more money to find and install the factory Ford 4G antenna under the rear deck between your speakers, and its required extension cord. Now do the TSB 22-2230 initialization procedure - you’ll find that on an internet search if the attached .pdf doesn’t work for you. This is the procedure that has you go in and out of Valet Mode to initialize the modem. As that procedure requires, I deleted my car from the Lincoln Way app and then added it back on. When I clicked “Activate” in the app it sent the expected message to my screen in the car asking me to approve the car. I did and I then finally saw the lock/unlock buttons, start/stop button and the horn/light flash buttons. Now my Lincoln Way app does what it must have been doing before they dropped 3G modem coverage last February. I also snapped a photo of the Sync 3 screen that shows my modem ID. It’s indeed different from the same screen when I had the 3G modem in there. New part compared with old. 4G modem is bigger and it has two Fakra jacks instead of just one on the 3G part. Recall Service Bulletin to set up 4G modem.pdf The circuit is just fine, thank you very much. Snap a photo of this screen in your own car before and after you do the swap. Before I did the swap, everything below the car was just an empty blue field.

    Internal Water Pump = engine failure

    Have not been here in a while. But I just did this job, I purchased a second MKZ AWD to drive in the winter months here in NE Ohio. Car has 254,000 miles on it runs and drives like a new car. But the water pump started leaking out the weep hole in the block, so I parked it until I could get around to fixing it. I to was quoted $2500.00 to fix it from a couple shops. So I decided to tackle it myself. The engine does not have to come out, But you have to remove the Intake, valve covers, motor mount, computer, overflow bottle, tire, wheelhouse, just so you can get to the timing cover, a special tool is required to lock the camshafts in place, about 25,00, job took 18 hours of labor and the parts were very reasonable from Tasca Ford. So for a little over $200,00 I fixed it myself

    C110D:13 & U0416

    Hi Rdavis. Yes, you did not originally mention if your warranties were active/expired or not. Unfortunately, many owners (both new and used) are not aware of their warranty coverage. Therefore, when it is not mentioned by the OP whether the vehicle is still within the 4 year/50, 000 mile New Vehicle Warranty or 6 year/70,000 mile Powertrain warranty, we need to ask. Which was why I also stated, "If not, perhaps one of our tech members will have some insight." In general, an issue like this will usually take a shop and/or diagnostic tools beyond the normal scope of a home mechanic. Otherwise it often results in throwing parts and money at the problem. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Not under warranty hence my reason for trying to trace the issue on my own

    Hi Rdavis. Can't help with diagnosis. However, is your 2019 MKZ still within the 4 year/50,000 mile New Vehicle Warranty? If yes, have it repaired under warranty. If not, perhaps one of our tech members will have some insight. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Replace fuel filler pocket

    The way I did mine was pulling the liner down and sticking my hand through it to put it in place from the back side. Hope this helps.

    2019 Lincoln MKZ getting drive control malfunction using forscan i have the following codes c110d:13 & U0416. Looking pid values i noticed the right strut is getting considerable more voltage reading than the left. Any one have ideas how to fix resetting modules and clearing codes was no help
  18. I replaced the battery in the trunk of my 2017 MKZ hybrid. When doing so I apparently pulled the emergency release to the fuel cover and broke it. I purchased a new fuel pocket but I can't get the new pocket installed. The fuel neck is in the way. Is there an easy way to reinstall the pocket? Am I going to have to lower the gas tank or something to install the new pocket?
  19. Was wondering if you ever got this fixed having a similar issue
  20. Nice, glad I inspired you. 😉 A sub tied into the rear subwoofer channels definitely adds the missing low end. I think adding a JL Audio FiX 82 or something to deal with the factory low end roll-off would make it perform even better. However, I'm not wanting to add any more money to my system, so I'll just enjoy what I have now.

    Squeaky trunk

    See this thread. The dealer fixed mine, but I don't remember what they did. It eventually came back anyway.

    Squeaky trunk

    Hi Tipper. Try lubricating the hinges/moving parts with a dry Teflon spray or lithium grease. You may need to loosen or remove some interior trunk panels to access them. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Squeaky trunk

    My trunk makes a creaky, squeaky noise whenever I open and close it. It's pretty loud. Does anyone have a fix for this?

    Welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum

    Just bought a 2018 MKZ Reserve 2.0 . 21K miles, CPO til Dec 2024. A great find in my own city. White/ Cappuccino. My last 2 cars were BMWs. 2001 740i Sport, 2011 535ix Sport. My MKZ might not be the performer quite like the BMWs but it's no dog either. I was concerned that I might be disappointed in some areas but the Lincoln really delivers a lot of features and a lot of smiles on my face. I've had good luck with Lincoln's in the past, one of which was an '87 Mark VII LSC. 5.0 HO. That. too, was an excellent car...now a collectible. Anyway, happy guy here!!
  26. Hi ruby. Well, it is a simple yet complicated question. 🙃 It can be normal, according to how often and far you drive. Or it could be a sign of a problem. If you do not drive for days at a time and take only very short trips when you do drive, the battery will not have enough drive time to properly/fully and it will eventually dip to a low charge state, which will trigger the "System Off to Save Battery"/Battery Saver Mode in order to save charge as long as possible for starts. Or if you do not drive for 14 days (no matter how long the last trips were or how healthy the battery is), it will also trigger "System Off to Save Battery"/Battery Saver Mode for the same reason. And that is with a healthy battery. A slightly weaker battery, very cold weather and other factors can trigger Battery Saver Mode even quicker. On the other hand, if your driving habits and environment fit none of those contingencies, and your have a healthy battery, then it is possible you have a weak battery, or some type of parasitic draw in the electrical system. It is just too difficult to know in a blind Internet diagnosis. Let us know how you make out and good luck.
  27. Curious observation... So I've been coming back to the car, after not having started it for a few days, and finding the battery at 11.9 / 11.8. Trying to figure out if this is "normal" in the hybrid. A few days ago I got the "System Off to Save Battery" sign on the sync screen. The trunk works normal, trunk light isn't on and nothing is in the accessory plug.
