    2007 MKX won't remote start

    How old is the vehicle battery? Need to test it (not voltage, the CCA measurement). Weak vehicle batteries throw all kinds of problems with the temps drop.

    Engine Noise on 2010

    Sound coming from engine compartment (lifers, comes from top of engine, sounds higher pitch, speeds up when engine speeds up, cam phaser have a low frequency thumping / ticking sound; cracked or warped exhaust manifold) -or- inside the cabin (hvac blend door actuator).

    Loud whining noise

    Too much refrigerant can cause something similar to this. Did you ever add any refrigerant to your system *was it serviced lately)? An old serpentine belt can cause squealing sounds during acceleration with a/c on. A pissed-off wife unit can make a lot of squealing noise during acceleration. Can quiet it with jewelry or dinner, for a while, but it will come back sooner or later.

    Transmission ?

    Wonder if it could be a failing TSS or OSS sensor. https://berkeleystandard.com/car-transmission/3-signs-failing-transmission-speed-sensor/
  5. While not unheard of, its still rare. Usually the hinge pin wasn't seated properly and works itself up and out of the hinge. (Or the screws fail, but that rarer). I read in the Focus forum where a fella reported drivers and passengers door hinges on his car were cracked and he was afraid of failure. Said he only had 25k miles. Online states $400-500 to replace. I'd talk to the dealer to see if Ford will help. (They did a large latch recall couple of years back).

    Missing sd card

    If it says "info" upper right, theres no navigation. It will read "navigation" if navigation was factory installed. There are online dealers that sell OEM kits to add navigation. The price is around $750 if your interested. (Price inclues an SD card worth around $150 and $50 if you send your old unit back). https://www.4dtech.com/mkx-11-15-navigation-upgrade-for-mylincoln-touch/

    Navigation in my car

    If your Edge doesn't have the navigation standard, there are suppliers online that offer upgrade kits. For example, if you have the 8" screen, you can add navigation for $750. (They include everything you need and program it before shipping). https://www.4dtech.com/products/ford/edge/2013/myford-touch-8/
  9. I'm running 245/50 R20 Pirelli Scorpion Verde's. No problems so far. (Either car). How many miles until they got noisy? I read in the reviews where owners in the 21" & 22" sizes were only getting 30-35k before replacing. (Got noisy and no tread left). Also in hot climates, such as desert southwest. Driver thought the road asphalt was too hot for the tires. One other driving 22" complained about getting noisy after cupping. That of course is an alignment issue. (Although I know better, it's stupid question time, did you have the alignment checked after installing)?
  10. I would imagine that you would be happy with either. I'm running Pirelli's and am well satisfied.

    Tire Wear / Replacing MKX Tires

    Speedometer will be off slightly, but not significantly. The 245/50 is about a inch larger diameter. Comparison: https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc?tires=245-50r20-245-45r20
  12. Nice!!! Really nice. Bet mama is extremely happy. Have you let her drive it yet?

    The build date is on the door jamb label, located on the driver's side front door panel. There's also a build sheet that's sent out with the car which acts as the production traveller. On my 09 MKX it was stuffed under the drivers side on the underhood insulation blanket.

    Tranny stuck in 5th

    As it started when you had an electrical problem, it may be possible that the TCM got confused. Seen several identical problems over in the F150 forum when battery ran low. Most fixed after battery jumped and restart. Some trannys were fixed by dealer applying a Could always try a Transmission Control Module reset. This website describes how. https://www.replicarclub.com/how-to-reset-ford-transmission/#How_to_Reset_Ford_Transmission This website described a different process. https://cookip.com/reset-transmission-control-module-for-ford/ In either case, its a simple procedure and doesnt take very long to complete.

    Transmission Fluid Change

    As Akirby stated, it's 150k miles. It's page page 492 of the owners manual. The manual also states 30,000 miles if you tow a trailer, have a lot of idling or primary low speed driving (city driving), driving in dusty or sandy conditions (pg. 493). It certainly can't hurt to change it more often.
