    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?

    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.
  3. Hi djc. A very nice write-up which will certainly help others. Thanks for taking the time, and good luck. 🍻

    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.

    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.

    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.
  7. 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.

    Backup Camera Display

    Hi Chris.Assuming the settings are the same on 2017 and 2018 models, try this (if you have not already done so): Go into the SYNC settings. Choose "Display". Set "Mode" to "AUTO" and and turn on "Autodim". If that does not work (and assuming you do not have something covering the ambient light sensor on the dashboard), then there is likely some type of issue which will need deeper diagnosis. Keep us updated and good luck.

    Backup Camera Display

    Hi Chris. What setting do you have the SYNC screen illumination set to in the SYNC settings? Try setting it to AUTO, if you haven't already. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    How to Lift 2013 MKZ for Brake Job

    Hi Aaron. In case you can not find a definitive answer on center jacking points, you can safely use your second option: "The other option I was thinking if I can't find the center spot was to put the floor jack near those jack points but not exactly on them, lift one corner of the car and then put the jack stand in on the exact lift point, and do one corner of the car at a time. For that option I would use the slotted puck to put on the pinch weld line to distribute the weight and hopefully not cause any damage." Use the floor jack with the puck, placed just far enough off the approved jacking points to allow you to place the jack stands in those same approved points. In that case, you may need 3 pucks. One for the floor jack, and one for each jack stand. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    How to Lift 2013 MKZ for Brake Job

    Hi Aaron. As far as where a normal jack or jack-stands should go: The Owners Manual shows where to place the jack. There are small triangles molded into the lower body-side cladding. Approximately 1 foot behind the front wheels, and 1 foot in front of the rear wheels. When you locate those triangles, you will find a notch in that pinch weld. That is where the factory jack is placed. That being said, if you have a slit puck type device, you can use the puck on that pinch weld to safely place a jack or jack-stand, since the puck will avoid damage to the weld. I can not accurately advise where to place a floor jack. However, I would definitely advise you remove that under-body shield before placing a jack anywhere in the vicinity, since you will need to ensure what is underneath can support weight. Perhaps one of our tech members will jump in to help with floor jack location. Let us know how you make out and good luck.

    Noise

    Hi aranala and welcome to the Lincoln MKZ Forum. How do you know the tires are 'OK"? A visual inspection alone would not necessarily uncover defects such as a broken belt, out of round tire, tire bubble etc. etc. You may want to start by swapping the front tires to the rear and vice-a-versa, to see if the "thumping" moves with it. If yes, then have the tires inspected by a tire shop you trust. Try to find on that can do a "Road Force balance" on the tires/wheels. Not a regular spin balance, but a Road Force Balance. Take those initial steps and get back to us. Good luck.
  15. Hi rubyinla. Yes, you use those same points to attach a battery charger, jumper cables etc. Good luck.
