    Transmission shift between 2nd and 3rd

    I sent the Service manager an email after I got home and that all was working well. He replied that he thought there was less than a 50% chance that it would have solved my problem. But at least now anyone with a transmission problem will get that software update. Only issue I had on the way home was that whatever they did unhooked my phone from Sync3 connection. I fooled around with that for about a half hour when I got home to finally get it to connect again. Sync3 just kept spinning that arrow around looking for the phone, but it finally worked after about 5 times of trying to link it...

    Transmission shift between 2nd and 3rd

    This TSB appeared to fix my slipping gears from 2nd to 3rd as well!

    Thanks for some positive news, Elijah.

    Transmission shift between 2nd and 3rd

    Sent an email today around noon to my Lincoln Service manager explaining how odd my 2nd to 3rd gear shift was and that it felt like it was slipping and RPM was going from 1500 to 2500 during that shifting situation. I asked him if he thought the TSB 19-2313 would do anything to stop that issue. He called me in about 10 minutes and said the description of the software update did not mention that issue, but it might be worth a try to have the update done, and I could drive right down and they had time to update it. Well, good news on the way home every gear shifted smoother, and the 2nd to 3rd gear shift now only has the RPM going from 1500 to 1900, and no slipping feeling at all. So, any issues are likely worth trying this update.

    Replacement wheel

    Check with a wheel refurnishing shop to see if it can be salvage.

    Replacement wheel

    My new to me MKX Reserve has a slow leak in one tire. Turns out the wheel is bent at the bead and should be replaced. Anyone have a good source for a new wheel ? I haven't checked with the dealer yet but can imagine they will be pricey. Thinking I could build an attachment for a porta power to spread the pressure point out and maybe push it back out. Might not be the brightest idea but would give it a try. Would not have to push it to far but would hate to ruin a wheel without a replacement on hand either. Thanks

    New guy with a key fob question

    Just a quick followup. I went to my local dealer and they tried to reprogram the fob but decided it was bad. They ordered me a new fob as I was still under factory warranty. All is well now. Thanks

  13. Check out the center console for the 2015 compared to the 2016. The 2015 had climate controls on the center console, but other functions like the radio all had to be handled by the steering wheel or the Lincoln My-Touch touch screen. The 2016 and later models6 added back a lot of actual buttons to the center console so you could change settings by feel, instead of taking your eyes off the road to look at a touch screen. Not everyone cared about this, but it was a major complaint from people who did care, and Lincoln addressed in later models. The Lincoln demographic tends to be a little older, and I guess that not taking your eyes off the road is a liitle more important to drivers over 20 or 25 years of age. When you are test driving models, pay attention to this difference. It may or may not be important to you. Mid year in the 2016 model, Lincoln changed from the Lincoln My-Touch to the Sync3 interface for their touch screens. This may or may not be important to you if looking at 2016 models. EDIT: I've added screenshots from the two years for you to see the difference. Also note that the 2016 introduced the push button transmission. This took me a few days to get used to. I can see how it would be unliked by some drivers. It doesn't bother me, but you may prefer the gear lever of the 2015.
  14. Hello all, I am having issues with an RFID tag to access residential area. Is anyone having any issues with this I have tested the tag in 3 different cars and no issues whatsoever but on my 2016 Lincoln MKX I cannot not get it to read. I have placed it everywhere.
  15. 2016 was the first year of the current MKX/Nautilus model. As with any redesign there will always be some initial issues, and the MKX had some in early production 2016 units. But it has been an very reliable vehicle from about mid-2016 model year on through the current Nautilus refresh. I would recommend a late-year 2016. Be sure it has Sync 3, not MyLincolnTouch for its infotainment and you should be fine.

    Edge -----> MKX

    I will keep that in mind.

    Edge -----> MKX

    Nice! We have the same but with the cappuccino interior. Make sure you change the engine coolant somewhere between 30k and 60k miles to help prevent a possible water pump failure down the road.

    Edge -----> MKX

    Well, it is official. After my 14 Edge Limited was totaled, wife talked me into the MKX. She is a new to us 2016 CPO Reserve and we are happy to be in the Lincoln, although I still miss my Edge.

    2020 Nautilus

    The new Blue the replaces the Blue Diamond on the 2019 is almost identical to the electric Blue on my wifes 2018 Infinity Q50. It looks good on the Nautilus, not as subdues as the Blue Diamond .

    2020 Nautilus

    I had the oil changed on my 2019 on October 25th. Some friends are interested in the Aviator and Corsair, so took this showroom photo. What I didn't notice at the time was the color of the the Nautilus in the middle was not a 2019 color, so they already had a 2020 in stock then.

    2020 Nautilus

    One of two dealers in the Portland OR vicinity currently have 2 in stock.

    2020 Nautilus

    I noticed my dealer now has several 2020 models in stock.
  28. Almost a month since I posted this and over 140 views. Will no one take a minute or two to open up their glove compartment and take a photo? Please ....
  29. A cloudy day in the Pacific Northwest, but an opportunity for a soft lighting photoshoot. The car is sporting our winter wheel/tire setup. The ride is actually improved over the factory 21 inch Pirellis with these taller sidewall 20 inch Michelins running 33 PSI. Jacob

    Transmission Clunking

    Update after the TSB-2313. It seemed to work for a few weeks, but back to hard shift from R to D again. It doesn't seem to happen as often, but still very harsh engagement (yes, like you have hit something and the entire vehicle will shudder) periodically. I contacted the dealership and they want to see my vehicle again. Not sure what they will do at this point... will keep you all posted!
